In an interview with NME, Tablo was asked about the experience.
You also had a fan moment when [Filipina singer and actress] Lea Salonga tweeted about Epik High recently.
Tablo revealed that he is a big fan of Disney music because it was a source of strength when he was struggling. Naturally, he also became a fan of Lea Salonga, the singing voices of both Princess Jasmine and Fa Mulan.
I’m a huge, huge Disney music fan. Disney princess songs, specifically, really get me through difficult times. And Lea’s sung a lot of those songs, right? She was the voice of so many princesses.
Describing her tweet about Epik High as “awesome,” he recalls reacting like a total fanboy when he saw it. He was thrilled to learn that she listened their music.
It was crazy that she was listening to our music, and tweeting [about] us. I was like, just totally like a fanboy. But yeah, that was awesome.
