In just over two years, Emi Choi has become a well-known name both in the Toronto R&B scene and among bird enthusiasts. As per her Spotify bio, Emi writes sad girl songs that help other sad people find solace, and this is especially exemplified in her 2020 singles On Your Mind and Stranger’s Sweater. With On Your Mind, it’s hard to not get emotional when she ends the chorus with the heartbreaking lyrics, “Say you just can’t control/ The way you feel with me, but I can tell/ Somebody else is on your mind while you’re still on mine.” Both tracks blew up and have since amassed over a million streams each and can be found on dozens of people’s melancholic R&B playlists. Emi followed up that success with her 2022 single, Melancholy Mood, where she shows growth her in songwriting and with a more intricate production (produced by Enoah) than in her previous two singles. When she’s not releasing songs that make you feel like a main character in a KDrama, Emi indulges her fans with covers of some of her favourite songs, longboarding videos, groovy instrumental beats, and of course, cute pictures and videos of her two birds, Sora and Terra. Moving forward, fans like myself are eagerly waiting for Emi to bless our ears with more beautiful music and to keep us amused with her birds’ antics.
