BewhY, the amazing rapper from South Korea, recently held another successful tour in the USA and Canada!
As part of his The Movie Star 2020 Tour, the famous artist made a stop in Atlanta at Center Stage Theater on January 24th. To make the show even more special, he brought several guests to perform as well: swimcoach, Simba Zawadi, Ted Park, and more!
The event started with a soundcheck for all artists, each of them getting ready for the full show where they would excite the fans with their high energy and great stage skills! To kick off the performances of the evening, the up-and-coming rapper swimcoach started with songs like “Envision,” “wOndEr whY i i,” and “runaway.” The rapper wasn’t afraid of getting up close with all the fans as he jumped down to the railing where the audience was standing and rapped his heart out for the hype crowd!
After a few more performances from swimcoach, Ted Park of H1GHR MUSIC began performing with special guest Parlay Pass, an Atlanta-based artist. Ted Park performed tracks like “Drippin,” “Jjajang Mami,” Tik Tok,” “My Love,” and the fan favorite track “Ugly.” The energy of the two artists was infectious as they pumped up the crowd on the stage, lending a fun vibe to the event with their big smiles and great fan service!
BewhY then came out with a strong start by performing tracks from the The Movie Star album. When he appeared on the stage, the fans’ cheers grew to their peak as they had been waiting for his appearance. An outspoken Christian, BewhY’s The Movie Star album was a personal album that tells the story of his own battles as he struggled to balance his fame with his faith and his career with his life. As such, the songs from The Movie Star are meaningful, especially as BewhY was the sole producer and writer for almost the entire album. As such, the tracks he performed from The Movie Star showed a new maturity from BewhY as an artist.
During a break, Simba Zawadi came out and performed a 15-minute set that included his newest track: the hard-hitting song “Anti-Hype.” His chill performing style allowed his songs to truly shine and take center stage as the crowd enjoyed the deep beats and smooth delivery of his lyrics.
Afterwards, BewhY came back out to perform some of his most well-known songs that got the crowd pumping and singing along with him. He then went on to close the night with a medley of some of his biggest hits such as “Day Day,” “Who You,” and more.
Overall, the night was a hit with fans who enjoyed seeing BewhY return to Atlanta after his successful tour in 2017. With the addition of special guests and a more intimate venue, BewhY’s newest concert in the city was a winner as fans were able to get closer to the stage and see the artists perform in a more personal way.
Atlanta was the first stop of BewhY’s tour, with stops following in cities like Houston, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and more. The tour came to an end with its final show in New York City on February 9th.
