EXO‘s Chen is known as one of the top vocalists in K-pop, and it’s for good reason: he has amazing range and his emotions are always perfectly encapsulated in the songs he performs.
Whether he’s singing live or putting his powerful voice on display in recorded songs, there’s been plenty of times we’ve been blown away by Chen’s vocal skills.
Here’s just some to leave you speechless!
1. Chen covering “Tear”
He sang the classic K-pop song in the original female key, notorious for being almost impossible for most singers to hit. He makes it look almost too easy!
2. His appearance on ‘King of Masked Singer’
The emotions in his voice while performing behind the mask – absolute goosebumps.
3. Every time he hit THAT note in “Monster”
You know the one…
4. Also THIS note in “Blooming Day”
Whether it’s EXO, EXO-CBX or his solo work, Chen is delivering. Those. Vocal. Runs.
5. When he hit the same highs as Changmin on “Mirotic”
That run after the breakdown on TVXQ!’s “Mirotic” is iconic, and it’s not easy to nail either. Chen did an incredible job in living up this label seniors’ original.
6. Let’s throw it right back to 2011
Chen had a small part during SM Entertainment’s massive SBS Song Festival performance in 2011 and he definitely made an incredible impression.
7. All the way through to 2019
Chen just keeps growing as a vocalist, and his 2019 solo album and title track, “Beautiful Goodbye”, allowed him to really flex his vocal talents with songs all to himself.
