On February 20, GOT7 released a new single titled ‘Encore’, their first song together after leaving JYP. The song was co-written by member Jinyoung, and its accompanying music video was produced by member Mark Tuan.
BamBam is the latest GOT7 member to sign with a new agency after Yugyeom signed with hip-hop label AOMG and Jinyoung joined BH Entertainment. Both Youngjae and Jackson have also announced respective agreements with Sublime Artist Agency. Remaining members JB and Tuan have yet to announce any new record deals.
