In an industry as restrictive as K-Pop, millions of fans have been delighted to see the Fatou getting recognition as an artist on a global level. She is known for being the first black female idol among his members, but the scandals for discrimination and favoritism sparked countless changes to the line-up.
Since November 2020, they have known success as a four-girl group. Although there were five members during the group’s re-debut under the name Blackswan, the following month one of them was expelled for a scandal involving the theft of several tens of thousands of dollars.
The fans didn’t care, since the attention has always been focused on Fatou, the black member of the group. Her mind-blowing visuals and her ability to rap have made her an icon.

Her most recent comeback, ‘Close to Me’, premiered a couple of weeks ago, and the single’s promotions are getting high visibility on YouTube. TikTok has echoed the most striking of the members, and the group is attracting a large number of new fans, who want to support it to show that in K-Pop there is also a place for people of other ethnicities.
Her new song seeks to get as close as possible to the sound that has prevailed in the industry for years, with their particular touch and multicultural line-up: in addition to Fatou, who is from Senegal, they have Leia, of Japanese-Brazilian origin.
