The news was announced on August 23 that BTS’ V, Kim Taehyung, will be in Naver’s new music show, NPOP. He’ll sing “Slow Dancing” and three more tracks from his upcoming solo album, “Layover.” The showcase of vocal and performing skills is what everyone is looking forward to.
V will be showing off his vocals and performance skills on Naver’s NPOP starting September 9 at 8:00 p.m. KST (1:30 a.m. IST). His first solo album, “Layover,” comes out on September 8 at 1:00 PM KST (9:30 AM IST). This album comprises six tracks. These are “Rainy Days,” “Blue,” “Love Me Again,” “Slow Dancing,” “For Us,” and the bonus track, which is a remix version of that song, titled “Slow Dancing (Piano ver.).”
A music video teaser for one of the b-side tracks from V’s solo album was released on BTS’ official social media channel on August 22nd. It shows V coming down a corridor full of expectation and stopping at the door to knock. The instrumental backdrop raises much more excitement behind him. With old R&B style mixed in with his bright voice, V presents a jazz background in this song called “Blue.”
Billboard charts on the 21st of August showed that Vâ€™s “Love Me Again,” which was released on the 11th of August, entered the Hot 100 at number 96. This is his second entry as a solo artist after previously achieving this feat several times with BTS.
Billboard also put out Billboardâ€™s third spot on its Top-Selling Songs for that week with “Love Me Again.” Fans became so addicted to the R&B and soulful sound of this song that they grooved along with it while allowing their tears to flow freely together.
