The sweetness in Anchen Ji’s new song is almost sickening in all of the right ways. I’ll be honest, the first time I heard “Wait It Out”, I wasn’t sold but, as the song played on, I started to feel it more and more in my heart. It was almost like Anchen Ji had a hold on me so when she took me up on my interview request, I got a little nervous. This song and style is so different from my normal but the heart is the same so why was I nervous?

No, I’m only able to do just one side.

What’s an old-school fad that you wish would come back?

What’s your favorite method of listening to music?


Favorite lyrics of all time?

Wang Yibo’s “No Sense” English translation: “when facing judgement keep emotionless and ignore it…. Nothing can’t be overcome, even if the sky collapses, love still remains.”

What’s one thing I should know before listening to “Wait It Out”?

Relax, forget about any stress, and make yourself comfortable.

What came first– the lyrics or the beat?

Beat. My producer created the beat with the influence of Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left To Cry”.

There’s something so sweet about your vocals but also so heartbreaking in the lyrics– Is there a reason you did it this way?

Sweet voice is my natural timbre, maybe because I have a smaller body size and a shorter vocal cord. I want the music and lyrics to give hope to audience that true love will overcome any obstacles. Love needs patience. I want my audience feel happy, romantic, energetic, and positive on their lives.

What’s your favorite line of lyrics from this track and why?

“It’s ok we’re lost right now. I know you’re confused. But we’ll get through. I can lead us out of these woods.” I love these lyrics because they show patience, fearless of difficulties, and a strong belief of love and hope.

If you could have one person cover this song– who would you want it to be?

Wang Yibo.

Is there anything else you want everyone to know about this amazing single, anything you have in the works, etc.?

I’m working on my third single. It is about love in parallel spacetimes. It is at an early stage. Please be patient.

Although most of Anchen’s answers were fairly short, I feel like as she talked about her music and “Wait It Out” in particular, I got the same amount of passion and energy as I did when listening to the song. The power that comes from her voice, like the answers to these questions is subtle but strong and I love that. She has also opened my eyes to a whole new scene and style and I may or may not be sitting here listening to Wang Yibo as I finish this interview up.

Out of all of the questions, Anchen’s answer to what I should know before listening to “Wait It Out” hit me the hardest. “Relax, forget about any stress, and make yourself comfortable.” Looking back at the first time I heard this song, that’s exactly what happened. Anchen’s angelic voice brings a sense of relaxation that, in such a busy world, we all could use a little more of so take a listen for yourself and be sure to follow Anchen Ji on her socials so you don’t miss her next single (which will surely be another stunning work of art).
