Somi’s agency The Black Label previously confirmed last week that the singer was set to release ‘XOXO’ this month. At the time no details about the release, including an exact release date and its tracklist, had been revealed.
The album’s release was also previously teased by Somi herself on Instagram, when she shared an image of a pile of pink and white albums, with the title ‘XOXO’ and her name printed on them on October 1.
Prior to her solo career, Somi had participated in the first season of Mnet reality TV competition Produce 101, where she came in first place. She later joined the group I.O.I in 2016, alongside other contestants like Chung Ha and former Gugudan member Kim Se-jeong, and stayed with the 11-member group until early 2017.
