SWEET THE KID

Jeong-min Choi (22) is an independent R&B singer-songwriter. As a lyricist, he usually writes about the theme of love which he expresses over minimalistic tracks that draw attention to his vocal ability and comfortable style. We interviewed him to find out more about his creative process, how he became part of The Good Days Boys trio, and more.


Disclaimer: These are very basic questions we ask every artist to get to know more about them in order to write our "Who You" segment on Instagram. All the artists often get similar questions. We would normally not release this as it's not a full-on interview but we thought it might be good to do so.

What's the story behind your artist name?

Since I do a lot of love-themed songs I wanted the word 'sweet' to be included and there was no one using the Instagram ID 'sweetthekid', so I decided to use it.


How would you describe your music to other people? I would describe it as comfortable R&B that I can listen to continuously.


How did you start doing music?

I've always listened to music since I was little but after seeing some of Travis Scott's performances, I decided I wanted to do music for myself.

How did you come to join the trio, 'The Good Days Boys'?

'The Good Days Boys' was the name of my joint album with Jimmy Brown, and while we were helping Rovv with studio work we became very close, so I asked them to continue doing The Good Days Boys as a three.


Different artists have different approaches when it comes to making music. What is your creative process like?

Music puts my voice and lyrics on a beat, and I think I get a lot of inspiration in everyday life or when I feel love.


Do you ever find yourself unable to express your creativity to the fullest? What kinds of things inhibit you, and how do you combat creator's block?

If I don't get a lot of sleep I can't perform well, and I think it's even worse if I'm under a lot of stress.


Fix Me - Sweet The Kid

You've released 7 solo singles this year. How do you keep yourself motivated to accomplish this much?

I work hard by watching Jimmy Brown, who's my example.


Your latest singles "Fix Me" and "give me head" are both related to related to the theme of love and express the passion you feel for a significant other. Were these tracks based on your own experiences or did you draw inspiration from somewhere else?

Sometimes it's a little from self-experience, and sometimes I write like a novel. I feel inspired by listening to what other people have to say.


Your songs are aurally minimalistic and seem to steer the focus towards your voice and lyrics. Is that something intentional you do? How did you develop your style of music?

I do it intentionally. The sound I want is from foreign singers, so I think it develops while listening to a lot of foreign songs.

What do you think makes you stand out amongst all the other artists in the scene? How do you want to be remembered by your fans?

I think it's my voice and melodies that make me stand out. I'd like to be remembered as a person who appreciates the support of his fans.


What other activities or hobbies besides music do you enjoy doing? Is there anything else you'd like to try besides music?

I like working out in the gym, and if I could I'd want to run a café!


Which of your songs do you like the most and why is that?

I like 'nike' from The Good Days Boys series the most because the three of us have a good melody, and I really like how we sing the hook's melody in our own style.

Are there any artists you'd like to work with?

Always Travis Scott, my hero.

"The Good Days Boys Vol.7" was just released on November 29th, my personal single will be released on December 13th, and "The Good Days Boys Playlist 1" comes out on December 28th.
