Well, actually something he calls “AK-pop” or “American music inspired by K-pop.” Chad Future (a.k.a. Detroit native David Lehre) has even set up a production company, Vendetta Studios, to make music videos and record songs.
Here are a few of them:
Listen, I can’t speak for the anyone else other than myself, but I laughed, I cringed and I really couldn’t get into the music. Overall, I thought his videos and music were a little strange and overwrought. That’s just my opinion though.
The last video, “When You Call,” features a Korean American singer, Jamie Seo, who looks so untypical for a Korean pop star. She isn’t super skinny with long legs, big eyes and aegyo sal. I think that’s refreshing and something that K-pop can perhaps learn from Chad Future.
Any ways, Mr. Lehre knows he’s got a lot of haters out there, but he’s being persistent. He’s been at it for at least 2-3 years (I first blogged about him in 2012) and I have a feeling he won’t be going away any time soon. So, Mr. Lehre/Future, I’ll be honest and say that your music isn’t my style, but it isn’t my business to tell another man not to pursue his dreams, so I wish you luck.
