[매일경제=성정은 기자] SEUNGRI collaborated with MINO on his new song.
Today (7th), YG Entertainment revealed the teaser poster for SEUNGRI’s sub-title song from his first solo album, ‘WHERE R U FROM’ through their official blog.
What caught the viewers’ attention is that MINO of WINNER participated as a featuring artist. People are wondering what kind of synergy effects the two people will bring through their collaboration.
SEUNGRI’s main title song ‘1, 2, 3!’ is a song with fresh vibes which the public did not anticipate, while the sub-title song ‘WHERE R U FROM’ is a dance party song that matches well with SEUNGRI’s nickname, ‘Seungtsby’.
Related officials from YG explained, “Artists from YG have recently chosen one song as a title and focused on one MV. However, SEUNGRI created a MV even for his sub-title song, as it’s his first official album since debut”, and asked for the fans’ support by adding, “We hope that the title song ‘1, 2, 3!’ and the sub-title song ‘WHERE R U FROM’ both receive lots of love from the listeners”.
They also stated, “MINO is expected to make appearance in the MV for ‘WHERE R U FROM’, and is currently arranging his schedule so that he can perform with SEUNGRI during his first broadcast stage”.
SEUNGRI and MINO both participated as writers for the song ‘WHERE R U FROM’, while SEUNGRI also composed the track with FUTURE BOUNCE.
SEUNGRI’s title song ‘1, 2, 3!’ was produced by hitmaker TEDDY, while SEUNGRI participated in the composing and writing of the song. Since it’s the first collaborative work between SEUNGRI and TEDDY, music fans in and out of Korea are paying keen attention to SEUNGRI’s new song, which noticed a change in SEUNGRI’s style of music.
SEUNGRI will make comeback on the 20th with his first solo official album, ‘THE GREAT SEUNGRI’. It’s his first album in 5 years since he released ‘Let’s Talk About Love’ back in August 2013, and will be an opportunity for the fans to meet SEUNGRI’s unique musical charms, rather than his charms as a member of BIGBANG.
SEUNGRI expressed his passionate heart on making his solo comeback by stating, “I’m ready, now it’s time for me to show my talents. I won’t let my members down”.
YANG HYUN SUK also raised expectations on SEUNGRI’s comeback by introducing the album as a ‘legendary solo album’ and SEUNGRI as ‘the 5th runner of YG in 2018’.
After making his solo comeback on the 20th, SEUNGRI will hold his first-ever solo concert ‘SEUNGRI 2018 1st SOLO TOUR [THE GREAT SEUNGRI] in SEOUL x BC CARD’ from August 4~5 at 6 PM in Jangchung Gymnasium, Seoul, as a start of his solo tour.
