Multicultural Asian girl group Blush announced that it has signed on to work with the Grammy Legend Award-winning American musician and producer Quincy Jones on the girls’ debut full-length album.
Jones is not only slated to act as the group’s executive producer on the band’s yet-to-be titled album, but on other future productions as well.
“When I met Blush, I was blown away,” Jones said in news reports. “These five girls reflect my lifelong mission to bring people together through music.”
The diverse members of Blush, who all sing in English, are Lee Ji-hae from Korea, Angeli Flores from the Philippines, Alisha Budhrani from India, Natsuko Danjo from Japan and Victoria Chan from China.
“Not only is it unique to see so many cultures come together, it’s amazing how much talent there is in this one group,” said Jones. “They have ‘it’ ― that extra something. I am thrilled we found each other and that we will be creating something special together.”
The girls recently released their latest digital single, “Warrior,” on Valentine’s Day. The up-tempo dance pop song is about women power, rebellion and fighting for one’s love.
Blush was first formed by Hong Kong-based independent production company FarWest Entertainment in 2010 with mission of popularizing an Asian act in the U.S. as well as the rest of the world.
Blush has opened and performed alongside some of the top names in the American music industry including Diana Ross, the Black Eyed Peas, Far East Movement, Justin Bieber and Jessie J.
The group is the only Asian crossover act to have two singles make it in the Top 10 on the U.S. Billboard Dance Chart with “Dance On” hitting the No. 1 spot and the girls’ debut single “Undivided,” featuring Snoop Dogg, peaking at the No. 3 spot.
