Fans are excited as they get to see a new side to the Girls' Generation leader with the release of 'Weekend'
Summer queen Taeyeon is back with the release of her digital single, ‘Weekend’. Even before the release, she was trending on Bugs, Genie and MelOn as knetizens were excited about her newest song. She had last performed ‘What Do I Call You’ live for the first time for an SMTOWN concert and had been featured in labelmate Taemin’s ‘If I Could Tell You’. This is her first solo single in more than six months.

The idol stated that she wanted her fans to enjoy this bright song that would help them forget their worries even if it is just for a moment.
