Baiyu / Press

“Okay, so you might already recognize singer-songwriter Baiyu: She was a VJ on mtvU for 4 years. Yes, one of our own! Now, she's stepping out to pursue a career as a soulful R&B chanteuse. For her third self-release--entitled Hunter, the rising singer navigates through gorgeous, tripping R&B melodies and urban-pop beats crafted by NYC-based producer, KQuick. "Journey of Souls," the slow-tripping, slinky opener on the album, sets the pace of the introspective record. "Where have we been, and where are we going?/ Follow the path/ It's just the beginning," Baiyu slowly ponders on the contemplative, moody number. Between the impressive belting and spaced-out production, the track (and the album!) brings JoJo's 2011 mixtape Can't Take That Away From Me to mind -- a major compliment in my book.”

“On June 13th, at Custo Barcelona at their flagship store in SOHO, Baiyu and friends celebrated the release of Hunter. Attendees enjoyed drinks by Tyku while watching Baiyu's amazing acoustic performance. Special guests included, Power 105.1's Cherry Martinez, Actress/ Penthouse Model Krista Ayne, Motown's Hal Linton, Thisis50's Jack Thriller, Street King's Bawsten, Hip Hop Duo Par-City, Fashion Editor OJ Williams, Gabriel Williams and Rae Holliday of StuffFlyPeopleLike,com, Designer Briana Bigham, R&B Singer Lance Drummons, Model Kelly Harper, and DJ Boof of the Wendy Williams Show. Garments were provided by Custo Barcelona and styled by Christian Law. Sponsors Included: Custo Barcelona, Tyku, Vitamin Water, Ricardo Steakhouse, Sprayground, TheNextToShine.com, Eboni of Sugar Pop Cakery”

“Regarded as an industry one-to-watch, Baiyu is on the verge of stardom as her music has been recognized by music executive great, Andre Harrell, in a recent talent search he held with Blazetrak.com. Listen and watch and fall for her like everyone else.”

“Baiyu—singer-songwriter, Ivy Leaguer, actor, and creator — is not faking it. Bubbling over with pep and enthusiasm, it's easy to mistake her ridiculous stream of energy as manic. But the multi-talented Princeton grad assures us this is no act. "My musical approach is very personal,' says Baiyu." For the most part every word comes from my story. Nothing is fabricated; nothing is shoved down my throat. It's just a real story coming from a real girl." This is one reality show we can enjoy especially when the tunes are as relatable as her all-too-catchy "Sweet Misery"...”

“Welcome back to Celebuzz’s The Meet & Greet, where we sit down and chat with rising young stars of film, television and music before they hit the big time. Watch out for these future A-listers! Baiyu is a Chinese-born beauty breaking into the music scene with her unique voice and exotic looks. She tells Celebuzz how she has actually NEVER taken a voice lesson — and how using Craigslist helped her career!...”

“Soul singer Baiyu moved to the United States from China when she was just 8 years old. Not able to speak any English, Baiyu began listening to Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige and that's when she fell in love with R&B music. Baiyu is a soulful singer who isn't another giddy pop sensation, her sound is robust, soulful and sweet. She's definitely the next big R&B star to hit the music industry. GlobalGrind had the lovely opportunity to sit down with the rising starlet and talk to her about some of her favorite things and the inspiration behind her music. Take a listen to Baiyu's new single "Together" and check out the exclusive interview below...”

“You talk about a heck of a life–singer Baiyu is a beautiful, first-generation Chinese immigrant who is the child of two musicians and fell in love with and started singing R&B at the height of the New Jack Swing movement. She graduated from Princeton University, worked as a model and was a host on the MTVU program “The Freshmen,” singing and dancing all the while. Her life, her experiences and her spirit are inspiring and uplifting as she truly reminds us that the American Dream is still out there waiting to be captured by those who seek it. Gaining recognition from her duet with Ryan Leslie on “When We Dance,” the singer has released an EP of her own, B Side, showcasing her vocal talents. When we caught up with Baiyu she was at no loss for engaging conversation, sharing stories about discovering R&B, living with subway musicians in New York City during a sociology study and how her upbringing was both traditional and free-spirited...”
