The category is live vocals, and these song covers from ENHYPEN’s Heeseung get tens across the board.
The moment Heeseung walked through the I-LAND doors, we knew the eldest member of ENHYPEN was destined for great things. And in the following two years, Heeseung has yet to disappoint. Whenever he hits the stage, audiences can expect to be treated to a tour de force of talent, charisma, and stage presence. And one tool that has helped Heeseung become a force of nature is his singing voice. We all know he can devour any choreography given to him. But his vocals are next level and make the listener feel like their ear is getting tickled by an angel. That kind of talent is part of the reason why ENHYPEN is the cover star of NYLON Manila’s 2022 fanzine which you can get your print copies here. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of Heeseung’s best song covers that gave us butterflies
1. MY UNIVERSE BY COLDPLAY AND BTS
As much as we love listening to Heeseung’s voice on ENHYPEN’s tracks, his raw vocals are just too good to not pay attention to. Sunoo was very much all of us when Heeseung bodied this cover that sounded so smooth and relaxing. We have a feeling he made his seniors proud with this one.
2. SO SICK BY NE-YO
Honestly, it’s a crime against humanity that we have yet to get a full version of this cover from Heeseung. His voice here just makes us want to melt inside as he sounds like what a warm hug feels like. In just 18 seconds, Heeseung gave an iconic moment in ENHYPEN history.
3. OFF MY FACE BY JUSTIN BIEBER
The grip that Justin Bieber has on K-pop idols is a phenomenon that should be studied by scientists. But at least the Bieber love gets us a moment like this. Heeseung isn’t the first idol to cover Off My Face, but he is one of the best. This cover perfectly demonstrates one of his strengths as a vocalist, a soft and angelic voice that hits in all the right spots.
4. SOFA BY CRUSH
If haters thought Heeseung couldn’t do more emotional tracks, they were sadly mistaken. His cover of Sofa showcased how he can go there to the more vocally intense songs as he brought out its emotion and gravitas. And that high note in the end, we love a birit king
5. TAMED-DASHED (ACOUSTIC VERSION) BY ENHYPEN
“Autotune? I don’t know her” is what Heeseung was probably thinking as he was singing this cover. While Tamed-Dashed is a high-energy track, Heeseung slowed things down to just an acoustic piano backing. He made his voice do all the talking, and we were seated
6. I’M SO TIRED BY LAUV AND TROYE SIVAN
Even as early as I-LAND, Heeseung was already demonstrating his A-tier vocals. Mind you, this was just in-between practice and Heeseung just casually sang a short yet sweet cover of this Lauv classic. The fact that he was wearing the iconic bennie while doing it makes it even better.
