It’s been hinted by various sources that Ailee is debuting in the US under the name A.Leean, which I now realise isn’t pronounced as ‘a lean’ but ‘alien’, although Ailee’s name hasn’t been used specifically it’s blindingly obvious. After ‘A.Leaan’s side stated “[They would like their] artist’s breathtaking voice, talent, and upbeat fun song to speak for its self, rather than her already established name and brand” and that she “already has a large fan base and has performed at concerts all around the world, including South Korea” and if the similarity’s between the name Ailee and A.Leaan still isn’t enough evidence for you then f(x)’s Amber, who is known for being a close friend of Ailee’s, also posted this on her Instagram.
The song ‘Fall Back’ is to be released on the 7th of January (which is today!) with an official lyric video to follow on the 11th. I hope Ailee doesn’t slip back into her Beyoncé wannabe image seeing as America already has the original Beyoncé, I think a song in the style of Home would garner more success with an American audience.
