Not long after her departure from YG girl group 2NE1, Minzy is already planning her return to the music scene.
In May, Minzy signed an exclusive contract with the agency Music Works, where she is planning to pursue solo activites for the first time after debuting with 2NE1 in 2009.
It seems like Minzy has been granted a lot of creative freedom to pursue her musical goals. According to an insider at Music Works, Minzy is currently deciding on a concept for her upcoming solo album. Although the date of her solo has not been decided, she reportedly wants to select a concept that fits her perfectly, as well as choose clothes that are perfect for her when she promotes.
Even the songs on Minzy’s album will be handpicked to match the young singer. An employee at the agency stated, “we are currently requesting songs from a variety of producers and we are working hard to only choose songs that match Minzy’s unique character. We are not prioritizing ballads or dance tracks, but rather are equially considering every song we hear.”
“Rather than rushing and choosing songs, we will take our time to select tracks to complete the album,” the agency added.
As this is Minzy’s first step into the music world as a soloist, it remains to be seen whether she can step out of the shadow of her former group.
