BTS member Jungkook is preparing to release his solo album.
According to Sports Chosun’s coverage, Jungkook is currently in full swing preparing for the release of his solo album, scheduled for July 14th. The album will include English songs, highlighting Jungkook’s active global activities as a solo artist.
Until now, Jungkook has showcased solo songs such as “Still With You” and “My Time” through SoundCloud. He has also released songs like “Stay Alive” for the webtoon “7FATES: CHAKHO” OST and “Dreamers,” the theme song for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, demonstrating his abilities as a solo artist.
This album, which will include his solo songs, is the first of its kind and is expected to receive fervent attention from global fans. Anticipation is high for the solo album, filled solely with Jungkook’s voice, to showcase what kind of charm he will bring.
In particular, Jungkook’s individual achievements are of great interest. He has already set a new record among K-pop solo artists on the world’s largest music streaming platform, Spotify, with his collaboration song “Left and Right” with American singer-songwriter Charlie Puth, surpassing 600 million streams in the shortest period.
Furthermore, with “Left and Right,” “Stay Alive,” and “Dreamers,” he achieved 1 billion streams on Spotify in the shortest period among K-pop solo artists, earning a spot in the “Guinness World Records.” It is expected that Jungkook will create new history once again with his upcoming solo album.
Just like other BTS members J-Hope, RM, Jin, Suga, and Jimin, who have successfully pursued solo activities, Jungkook also plans to hold a grand solo debut ceremony. Especially since he recently met with Grammy-winning producer Andrew Watt alongside HYBE CEO Bang Si-hyuk in the United States, there are high expectations for the birth of a groundbreaking masterpiece.
Meanwhile, BTS has announced the upcoming 10th-anniversary celebration, FESTA (2023 BTS FESTA), and plans to release various contents in succession. On the 9th of next month, they will release a new song titled “Take Two” with all the members.
