BTS’ V releases ‘Layover,’ his first solo album

Seoul, Sep 8 (EFE).- V, one of the seven members of the popular South Korean K-pop band BTS, released this Friday “Layover,” his first solo album.

Although V, whose real name is Kim Tae-hyung, had released several solo tracks, this is his first studio album, his record label BigHit Music recalled in a statement Friday.

V, 27, thus becomes the last of the seven members of the successful group to officially debut as a soloist.

Since BTS announced last year that it would take a hiatus as a band until at least 2025 so that its members could fulfill their country’s mandatory military service and focus on personal projects, several of its members, such as RM, J-Hope, Jin or Jimin, have taken released solo albums.

“Layover” consists of five songs, including the pre-releases “Rainy days” and “Love me again,” and the lead single, “Slow dancing,” presented Friday and which at the time of being posted on the YouTube platform had more than 1.3 million views.

“This album is full of the charms of Kim Tae-hyung as a person,” said the artist in the statement.

The album, loaded with R&B and calm tones, has been entirely produced by Min Hee-jin, CEO of ADOR, one of the labels of the South Korean giant Hybe.

Min, a former creative director of SM Entertainment signed by Hybe in 2019, is the figure behind the successful girl band NewJeans. EFE
