Somi's 'Dumb Dumb': Release date, concept and all about the singer's third single album
Soloist Somi has joined the August rush and is part of this summer's K-pop lineup. She is set to release her newest single ‘Dumb Dumb’ after almost a year. We last saw her in 2020 with the single ‘What You Waiting For’ with which she got her first music show win. Fans were since waiting for her comeback and were excited once it was announced that her August release was confirmed.
The Canadian-Dutch-Korean singer was a trainee at JYP Entertainment and came first in the survival show ‘Produce 101’. As a result, Somi ended up debuting in the subsequent project girl group I.O.I in 2016. She then had her solo debut in 2019 with ‘Birthday’ and is now under The Black Label. Here’s everything that we need to know about ‘Dumb Dumb’, her third single album.

Teaser and music video
She also released a teaser for the music video of ‘Dumb Dumb’. Reminiscent of the high school rom-com of the early 2000s, we see a blonde Somi as a popular high school student. Juxtaposed with bright pastel colors in the cafeteria and hallways versus darkly lit bathrooms and prom night, Somi reveals the hip-hop pre-chorus full of swagger.
