The singer had previously announced the release through several teaser images posted on September 14, which primarily feature a graphic of the letter J, first on an earring and later as a logo.
A day prior, the former NMIXX member also released a video called “Stay tuned (really)” on her label’s YouTube channel. The clip features footage from the singer’s life, alongside glimpses of her in a recording booth and practicing choreography in a dance studio.
The announcement comes just weeks after Jini seemingly hinted at new solo music in a TikTok post earlier this month. That clip had been soundtracked by what appeared to be an unreleased song from the singer, and featured the caption: “Thank you for waiting.”
Back in April, the K-pop idol has dropped a cryptic “Stay tuned” teaser on the on the YouTube channel of her new agency, Abstract To Concrete (known then as United Artist Production).
