Ailee 'Amy': Release date, concept and all about K-pop star’s comeback with The L1ve
After several singles, it looks like the K-pop star Ailee aka Amy Lee is finally releasing an album in 2021. Fans claimed that she was fading away under her previous agency and were ecstatic when it was revealed that she had signed with The L1ve. The L1ve is the second label founded by VIXX’s Ravi. The singer-producer is known for his hands-on involvement and for taking good care of the artists under his first label GROOVL1N. And Ailee’s fans are happy that she will be able to promote once again under her new label.
It has been reported that Ailee is set to release her third studio album after two years. Considered to be her first album with The L1ve, ‘Amy’ is Ailee’s first official comeback in quite a while where she will be promoting on shows and interviews. Fans are excited for what is in store as this is not Ailee and Ravi’s first collaboration. They have worked together in the past on several singles. It has also been reported that both of them have worked on the title track of ‘Amy’. Having been dubbed as ‘K-pop’s Diva’, fans are looking forward to Ailee’s comeback.
