For his debut solo single, pop star Wonho decided to take charge from the get-go. Born Lee Ho-Seok, the Korean musician not only co-wrote “Losing You,” he also produced the track and sang it in English. The heartfelt ballad resonated with listeners, hitting No. 1 on the iTunes Top K-Pop Songs chart in countries such as the United States, Australia and United Kingdom. Wonho said that working on his eight-track EP (“WONHO 1st Mini Album Part. 1 Love Synonym (#1): Right for Me”) during the pandemic helped him maintain a sense of normalcy during an abnormal time. Accustomed to constantly jetting off to destinations for work, he said he tries to stay active every day. “It’s a really different reality we live in now, (but) I’m making sure to keep my routine going,” he said. “Workout daily, eat healthy, spend time in my recording studio and work on new music and production. And, of course, go out a bit for air.”

Maggie Szabo takes her work on the road. Literally. The Canadian singer-songwriter has penned songs in Greece,Thailand, England and Amsterdam. “I sometimes forget how big of a world there is out there outside of my little bubble,” says Szabo, who’s based out of Los Angeles. “There is so much music, so much culture and so many styles of writing and production that I learn from traveling. It’s really good to be reminded of that.” Her latest song is the Ryan Riback remix of “I Don’t Need You.” Best known for her single “Don’t Give Up,” which was dedicated to the transgender community, Szabo stays in touch with her fans on social media, where she goes by the username @allaboutmaggie.
