YMGA - Tell it to My Heart feat. Uhm Jung Hwa

YMGA (Young Men's Gangsta Association) is a rap group from Korea comprised of Masta Wu and DM, from the YG Entertainment record label.

The instrumental from this song is sampled from the 1987 smash-hit Tell it to My Heart, by Taylor Dayne. 엄정화 (Uhm Jung Hwa), one of Korea's most popular female vocal artists, is singing the chorus in this song. This song is featured in the Made in R.O.K (Republic of Korea) album.

As reported by our good friends at Jess' YG World, there is a small controversy within the Korean press about this song. The Korean rap version of Tell it to My Heart was originally a single by the Korean hip hop veterans and also fellow YG entertainment labelmates, Jinusean. Jinusean had performed this song with popstar Kim Ji Eun last year in a concert. However since YMGA is a new group within YG Entertainment and they are releasing their first EP album, Jinusean has graciously allowed the song to be performed by YMGA.
