Welcome to the second edition our MusicDrop series! It's been two months since we released our first edition, and we're very excited to share to the wider VTuber community some of the VTuber music, both original and song covers, that we have collected during that time.
Don't worry!—If you think a recent song wasn't featured, feel free to reply to us on Twitter for some of these music gems, and we'll feature them in the next one.
For now, here's more than 100 music projects from the VTubing community for your enjoyment:
'Virtual Paradise': The VTuber Summer Album by Lone Alpha
We start off this MusicDrop with one of the hottest VTuber album release this summer, 'Virtual Paradise' by music producer Lone Alpha. The album features a ton of VTuber guestings, including Miori Celesta, AkioAIR's Kion Dojima, Kitsui Akira, Girl_dm, and much more!
'Cloud19': The Debut Album of PRISM Project's Iku Hoshifuri
In another major VTuber album release, we now turn to PRISM Project's Iku Hoshifuri, with the release of her very first album titled 'Cloud19'. The 11-track album features titles such as PRISM no You Ni, blue green, and Cloudscapes.
Froot's First Cover: Sun Killer
VShojo's Froot definitely surprised us with her very first cover: an outstanding rendition of Sun Killer by the popular Canadian heavy metal band Spiritbox.
Fans were very much surprised to hear Froot's metal screams for the first, with many VSingers praising her own take on said track. Aside from fans and VTubers alike, it has also caught attention of other heavy metal enthuasists, including metal singer and YouTuber Little V and even a retweet from heavy metal record label Rise Records.
And yes, even Courtney Laplante, vocalist of Spiritbox, has seen the cover, loved it, and even complimented the artwork, made by Viiperfish.
