Big Hit Entertainment just confirmed BTS member V’s solo album, read on to discover what you can expect from his much awaited album!
Each member means a lot to the fandom, BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan) or Bulletproof Boy Scouts are one such exceptional boyband that has managed to garner love and admiration for each of its members and its not a case of highlighting some over others. If you are a fan yourself you would know what we are talking about – RM, Jin, J Hope, Suga, Jimin, Jung-Kook & V all are equally loved and adored by their fans, an occurrence seen seldom over the years in the history of boybands. The resurgence of boybands can be owed a great deal to BTS. Mind you, the love is not one way – the band members are highly receptive of the love their fans have and are extremely respectful and do their best to interact with fans often and remind us of their deeply embedded hope to always do better for us!
They announced their hiatus in 2022, revealing the news their fans dreaded the most, during their BTS Fiesta Livestream while also mentioning how they will use this time to focus on their own solo projects “to be one” again. “I hope you don’t see this as a negative thing, and see it as a healthy plan,” J-Hope said. “I think BTS will become stronger that way.” The good news though, the K-Pop sensation haven’t disbanded and are pursuing personal ventures and/or joining their due military service as mandatory for men in South Korea. Korean men are obligated to complete an 18-month enlistment in the South Korean army before they turn 28. Jin being 30, has been the first to be enlisted. They reiterated this only being a 3 year hiatus to complete their mandatory service and plan for a reunion in 2025.
Any clue why Album Of The Year Is trending? We think most Army (official name of their global fandom) would know but if not, don’t worry we are prepared to get you all the details down to the t.
ARMY, Are You Ready For V’s Solo Album?
ARMY, are you ready? If by any chance V or better known as Kim Taeyhyung is your bias, today might be a specially exciting day for you. As the 7 members each release their solos and album, ARMY’s have been patiently anticipating V’s turn but well aware, being a perfectionist he would only announce one when he himself is confident of his work. Finally, after Army’s waiting for ages, today the confirmation for V’s solo album, the last member to debut his solo project was made.
An Unusual Choice By V
Fans are quick to foreseeably term it to be a conceptual music masterpiece. Though, in a slightly unusual choice he decided to not opt for his music label – big hit’s production team but chose or as per the press released, suggested to work with Min Hee-Jin, CEO of ADOR – also a label under HYBE (Big Hit Entertainment’s parent company) and the producer behind the success of the buzzing new k pop girl group, New Jeans. She will be the one handling the album’s production ranging from the music, choreography to even the design and production.
The Power Of Kim Taehyung!
Korean media has declared Taehyung being the most powerful weapon of BTS and his album is a sure shot to a global success. The Idol’s fans believe in the power of V’s more organic approach to his creation of music and of the fact that he knows what he wants and how he wants it. Fans have a strong feeling his solo album and songs won’t be anything to the likes of being ordinary in his art, his ideas, vision and thoughts about how he perceives and creates music, his journey as an artist and the person he has grown into, in his unique way! Fans also believe Kim Taehyung’s album will be diverse, you will hear his hip-hop, R&B, Jazz marvels along with much more that will be unexpected but will take the music industry by storm. The announcement has even led to a rise in Hybe’s share prices as per Korean media. Yes, thats BTS’s power for you.
V’s Message About His Upcoming Album For ARMY
V’s voice is mesmerisingly known for his smooth yet husky, very distinct vocals. We mean no shock considering he is the only one out of the 7 who is a baritone singer; a singer with a deep, rich voice. The band’s management company BigHit music stated in the release: “V is stepping up work to make his first solo album,” It’s no secret V excels in a variety of musical spectrums, including not only dance and hip-hop songs with strong performances, but also R&B and jazz.
Don’t worry, V himself has confirmed the news too. V shared his thoughts on the upcoming album with the following comments in the press release: “I’m nervous but happy … This album is full of my own taste. There will be a lot to see, I think ARMY will be happy with this album. I hope you will look forward to it,” he added “You will be able to see a new side of me as a solo artist. It will be different from BTS’ V.”
Saying we are hyped would be an understatement! The power of Army has led the news to be a top trend on twitter in a matter of a couple of hours with #ALBUMOFTHEYEARISCOMING taking a top position. With Jungkook’s single, Seven stirring up a storm in the music industry, we can only imagine the response V’s album will get, already anxiously awaiting V’s album!
