Wonho's ‘Love Synonym #1: Right For Me’: Release date, tracklist, where to stream former Monsta X star's solo album
Former Monsta X member Wonho has officially gone solo with the debut of his new studio album
South Korean singer Wonho’s solo debut album hits the Internet today (September 4) and it comes after he parted ways with his boy band Monsta X in October 2019. Wonho, who shot to fame in 2015 through Mnet's survival show, No Mercy, decided to walk out of the band after news of him smoking marijuana started doing the rounds on the internet last year. However, he was later cleared of all charges.
Wonho announced his first solo album in August and shared that his new album is called ‘Love Synonym #1: Right For Me’ via his new Instagram and Twitter accounts. He described the album as “1st mini album part 1.” The 27-year-old singer also released the song ‘Losing You’ in August which is a tender piano ballad focusing on the singer’s relationship with his fans. The album hits the internet on September 4.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Looking at the first song and the emotional roller coaster the singer has been through from last year, it is very much clear that the album will be emotionally supercharged.
Talking about what to expect from his solo debut album, Wonho told Rolling Stones in an interview that fans can expect a mix of uptempo tracks and ballads. “I chose my favorite styles and incorporated both languages, Korean and English, in one EP. I feel like this EP is reflecting my own colors and sending my personal message out there to my fans.”
The album consists of eight tracks with no features from any artist.
‘Open Mind’ (Korean Version)
‘Lost In Paradise’
‘Losing You’ (Korean version)
‘Open Mind’ (English Version)
The South Korean singer had recently revealed that he began working on his solo project six months ago and was eager to finally share new music with his fans. Wonho also spilled the beans about his album and said that he wanted to deliver a message that he is there for his fans like they have been there for him always. He wanted to share the feelings and sentiment of what he was going through. This pretty much sums up how the album is going to be.
