BTS’ RM is gearing up to release their first solo album.
After a report from JTBC News claimed the LP would arrive on November 25, Big Hit Music confirmed that a disc is on the way but did not offer a release date.
The label confirmed to Korea JoongAng Daily, “RM will be releasing a solo album and is currently in the works.”
The 28-year-old rapper has released two mixtapes, 2015’s “RM” and 2018’s “Mono.”
RM recently teamed up with fellow Korean Balming Tiger on the track “Sexy Nukim.”
Just last week, RM’s bandmate Jin released his Coldplay-assisted solo single, “The Astronaut.”
After the K-Pop boy band collaborated with Chris Martin and co on the mega-hit ‘My Universe’ on the group’s 2021 LP ‘Music of the Spheres’, the 29-year-old star has teamed up with the hitmakers’ Yellow’ for writing his last solo track.
As well as adding to the lyrics, Coldplay performs on the track and Chris plays a news anchor in the accompanying music video.
J-Hope, 28, released his first solo album, “Jack In A Box,” in July.
BTS’ management team previously clarified that the group is not taking a break despite working on solo projects.
It was reported that the South Korean boy band – completed by Suga, 29, V, 26, Jimin, 27 and Jungkook, 25 – were breaking up and reuniting “one day”, but their representatives insisted on the fact that their remarks were poorly translated.
A statement from their agency HYBE said: “The group will remain active as a team while embarking on an individual journey to pursue personal growth. [They] allow themselves to express their individuality through the release of solo albums and collaborations with other artists.”
HYBE’s parent company Big Hit Music added, “BTS is now embarking on a new chapter with new solo projects as well as group projects. The members will take this time to grow personally through various new activities, and we expect this will further strengthen the foundations of the group in the long run as a team. Big Hit Music will actively support artists.
