Rumours that his album would be dropping soon grew after Jimin appeared on ‘Vibe’, his latest collaboration with Taeyang of Big Bang.
It adds to a growing catalogue of the singer’s collaborations, which also includes the Our Blues OST track ‘With You’ with soloist Ha Sung-woon as well as the Benny Blanco and Snoop Dogg team up ‘Bad Decisions’, which also features fellow BTS members Jin, V and Jungkook.
On February 10, Jimin hosted on Weverse where he not only confirmed that the long-rumoured album is indeed real, but “is going to drop in around March”.
He explained via Soompi: “I’m currently preparing lots of things that I can do together with you guys around that time. I’m planning lots of different kinds of things we can do to have fun together and enjoy ourselves, so I think you can safely look forward to it.
“You’ve been waiting for such a long time that I wanted to quickly announce this news first before starting [the rest of the broadcast].”
Jimin will be the fourth member of BTS to officially debut as a soloist, after J-hope, Jin and RM all released their own records in 2022.
Suga, V and Jungkook have also gone on record to declare they’re working on solo material, but at the time of writing, they’re all yet to announce their respective projects.
