Growing up we all had dreams of becoming something big, whether it was selling out on Broadway or curing long life diseases, we let ourselves run wild with our imagination. For Asian American pop singer WeiWei, her dreams were to become the next Britney Spears, and she’s making her vision a reality. Dropping her punchy single “Trophy Girl” earlier this year, the Changsha-born singer is on a mission to break boundaries and become the first Asian-American name in pop music that isn’t under the K-pop banner.
Channeling just about everything from love to representation, the artist puts her all into her music, while riding effervescent electro-pop beats and synth-heavy productions.
Dropping her first trap-infused single “Forever” back in 2018, the artist has proved her growth over the years, as she ventured from a bubblegum dream-pop aesthetic to a bold and sassy vibe. “I've started to become a stronger songwriter and performer,” WeiWei revealed. “I've gained more confidence in my ability to write and not run out of ideas. I have also become more comfortable on stage and connecting with an audience. I've gotten better at producing music videos and have a clearer vision of who I am as an artist. I think in life we always grow so there's more to come and more to do!”
Ready to release more music and design more merch for her ever-growing line, WeiWei caught up with us talking her early beginnings, relocating from China to the US and how she wants to inspire people with her sound.
