It was a collaboration no one expected as Lee Hi appeared as a special guest during Gallant’s performance at Jisan Valley Rock Festival in Icheon, South Korea.
Gallant was performing on one of the event’s main stages when he brought out Lee Hi for the track, “Skipping Stones”.
“Skipping Stones” originally featured American singer Jhéne Aiko, and Lee Hi did a fantastic job of filling her shoes for the song.
Gallant and Lee Hi first met at a bar in Itaewon, Seoul before they agreed on the surprise collaboration.
“I saw a clip of Lee Hi performing one of my favorite songs by Jazmine Sullivan and I thought that her voice was incredibly soulful.”
The artist himself was not new to the Korean music industry and revealed himself to be open to working with other Korean artists.
He previously worked with Tablo and Eric Nam for the hit track “Cave me in” released last January.
