[MY VOCAL ANALYSIS] OneHallyu #11 — Ailee

Recommended Posts

myvocalanalysisprofileailee_zpsike2j32v.

 

 

Amy Lee, better known as Ailee, debuted in 2012 with her single “Heaven†which instantly found success and catched the k-pop’s community attention because of Ailee’s strong vocals, those that led her to become one of the most prestigious vocalists in the korean music industry. Although starting as a YouTube singer, Ailee gained the recognition from her friends when they commended her vocal skills, and later she was praised by many artists such as Big Mama King, again due to her voice.

 

 

ANALYSIS_zpsfhabeyyb.png

 

VOCAL RANGE: D3 — F6 (3 octaves and 2 notes)

Supported range: G3 – F5 (1 octave and 6 notes)

 

Ailee is usually what people calls a “powerhouse†singer, due to her strong and agressive timbre. Over the few years she has been an idol, Ailee has shown a dramatic improvement accompanied by an overwhelmingly good technique, fixing her minor issues as the time passes, and also expanding her supported range.

 

Her flawless control of her pitch or intonation, her good development of all the three registers (see below), her consistency with resonance, placement and agility, among other things, allow her to take the crown as the Best Female Vocalist of K-POP nowadays.

 

Vocal  positives: Ailee does considerably good in every register of her voice, and shows a good support and placement in most part of her range. Her agility has become great due to a proper connection and transition in between her registers. Intonation is barely ever lost, even when dancing the singer has proven to be quite efficient in this field. As a smart musician, she tends to not go outside her supported zone, which represents more than a half of her actual range. Although musicality is not included in the vocalist’s ranking, it is important to point out that the singer has a good sense of musicality, being able to modify a song’s tempo or structure in order to fit her vocals or showcase her abilities in a better way (see her cover of Taeyeon’s part in Shake That Brass). Her legato is on point.

 

Vocal negatives: Her lower register can produce disconnected and non audible notes around G3, F#3 and below. She lacks a true control of her voice in the sixth octave (C6 – F6). Her vocal runs might become less accurate when dancing.

 

 

REGISTERS_zpsiljgltbw.png

 

  • LOWER REGISTER

Although this can be considered her weakest zone, it is not a weak register. Ailee has issues with projection and placement in lower notes (generally below G3) as shown in her performance of Halo (2011), where she demonstrated she is more of a belter oriented singer than a lower-mid one. However, through the years she has shown occassional improvement in this zone, although the gap in between this register’s development and the other registers’ is getting wider, due to a preference of the singer to stay in a higher part of her voice. Her connection has been getting better below the G3 zone, but projection is still lacking, like in If I Ain’t Got You, where she shows a considerable improvement compared to her debut years.

  • MIXED REGISTER

Probably the best known register by fans and non-fans, Ailee’s mixed register is, possibly, her most developed one and, arguably, the second best mixed register of a female in K-POP. As a belter kind of singer, Ailee portrays strong belts with a proper resonance until E5 and support is always present until E5 and F5. The singer never becomes nasal in this register, but although her placement is correct, notes can sound yelled and pushed at times due to a preference of the singer to sound “louder†and put more chest voice into her mix (see Love On Top). Agility becomes almost flawless when performed in this register (see Hey, Hui).

  • HIGHER REGISTER

Ailee’s higher register shows a proper development until B5. Although this register presents very little flaws, Agility here is still an issue for the singer, as she is lacking on controlling her runs when she is not in a good condition (see again the Bb5s of Love On Top). The production of Ailee’s head voice is always present with a proper placement and resonance is achieved more than 90% of the time within her supported range (that expands up to B5) such as in Let It Go, Halo and I Will Always Love You, however, above this her head voice becomes tense and flat.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION_zpsip7j2abq.png

 

Ailee is a vocalist to take in consideration when talking about a good voice with a proper vocal technique, and although she might still present some flaws in order to become an excellent vocalist, her progression is shown each time she performs, being able to sing and dance at the same time without losing a lot of her singing skills, a feature that has led her to be named as the Korean Beyoncé among the K-POP community. Ailee is nowdays one of K-POP’s best vocalists and the best female vocalist of the genre.

 

Recommended performance(s): “Hey, Huiâ€, “Everyoneâ€, “I Will Always Love Youâ€, “Ambiguousâ€.

please do luna

 

I will do Luna

 

 

 

ailee's a full lyric?

 

 

I would say so, deeming Ailee as a light lyric along with Hyorin feels wrong to me since she is more "similar" in voice to Solji, who happens to be a full soprano, than to Hyorin

 

 

I am most anticipating Hyorin's analysis now. :imstupid:

 

It's here :imstupid:

Oh its you! ^^ I'm glad to your stuff on onehallyu since all your stuff on allkpop got erased.

 

Is 70-61 (or whatever rank Hyorin, Solji, and Ken are in) considered above average or average?

Thanks for following! Yes I'm recovering all the analyses post in allkpop or at least the most relevant ones as well as writting new ones.

70-61 stans for Above Average, but I think you could say Hyorin is between Above Average and Good
