Minzy, former member of K-pop group 2NE1, will finally release her solo debut album.
Her first mini-album “Minzy Work 01 Uno” will be out by April 17, a year after she left 2NE1 to pursue a solo career, and signing up with record label Music Works.
The album will contain five to six songs including the title track that features Korean-American rapper Flowsik, former member of Aziatix who became a contestant on the Korean rap contest TV show “Show Me The Money 5” last year. It will also include collaborations with singers Park Jae-min and Jay Park.
Minzy is currently a regular cast member of the TV show “Sister’s Slam Dunk.”
Fans were shocked when YG Entertainment announced on April 5 last year that Minzy decided to leave 2NE1.
Before 2NE1’s contracts expired on May 5 last year, the agency had talks with the members about a renewal.
“However, unfortunately, Minzy did not agree on that,” said YG Entertainment then. In November last year, 2NE1 was eventually disbanded.
Recently, Dara clarified that there is no bad blood between her, CL and Bom, and Minzy.
“I might not call it misunderstanding. Actually, nothing has changed that much. Some news articles have described it as misunderstanding, but we actually don’t feel much change in the relationship between us,” she said, according to the YG Life blog.
She said, “’I have loved a Japanese movie titled ‘The Song Of The Sun,’ Minzy told me. ‘The film feels like ‘The Song Of The Sun’ that you like, it goes well with you.’ I felt once again that the other 2NE1 members are the ones who know best about me.”
