On November 18, Spotify announced the 2021 additions to the ever-growing ‘Spotify Singles: Holiday Collection’ playlist. This year, LeeHi participated as the FIRST Korean artist and the ONLY artist from Asia in the Spotify Holiday Collection playlist.
LeeHi Participated in ‘Spotify Singles: Holiday Collection’ Project
As the first Korean artist to participate in the collection, LeeHi recorded her heartwarming single ‘For You’ with a fresh new holiday vibe as an exclusive track on Spotify. Since it is the exclusive project, the track is only available on Spotify.
Being able to participate in the project, LeeHi expresses her joy by sharing,
“Thanks to Spotify, I was able to reinterpret ‘For You’ into a new romantic holiday song perfect for this year-end season. It was fun to recreate a much-loved track to a holiday version just for Spotify’s Holiday Singles for broader international music fans. I hope the reimagined ‘For You’ and other songs in the collection can comfort listeners so they can have a happy holiday in a time where cheer is certainly needed.”LeeHi
Meanwhile, ‘Spotify Single: Holiday Collection’ has been the go-to for holiday tracks for years. In addition, Spotify – the world’s most popular audio streaming subscription service – shared,
“This year, we reimagined holiday classics with LeeHi from Korea and other artists from the globe to create new renditions of timeless tunes. We hope you have a holly, jolly time rocking around to these holiday singles from hitmakers around the world.”Spotify spokesperson
