As one of the best vocalists in K-pop, Youngjae surely knows how to make an entrance. As the seventh member to finally go solo, the GOT7 star released his solo debut mini-album ‘COLORS from Ars’. For those who love that the number 7 is so closely associated with the group, the album has seven tracks and Youngjae is going solo seven years after his debut with his group. And to show their appreciation, Ahgases (GOT7’s fandom) have been helping the album top charts.
Youngjae released his first mini-album ‘COLORS from Ars’ and its title track ‘Vibin’ on October 5. ‘Vibin’ is the perfect song that showcases the strengths of the vocal powerhouse as he makes use of his dynamic range in the upbeat dance-pop song. The other tracks have signature Youngjae sounds as he experiments with R&B and synth-pop songs. And the album has done well domestically as well as globally.
