Thaw K-pop legends team up for a new single out next week. It was announced by Black Label Big bang‘s Taeyang will release his collaboration with BTS‘ Jimin, “Vibe,” on Jan. 13. The news was revealed in a tweet from Taeyang on Tuesday (January 3), which included a snap of the two on what appeared to be the video set for the song, where they are seen posing in a cavity lit by a ring of yellow light.
“Vibe” marks Taeyang’s first new solo music since his third solo album, 2017’s White night. But more importantly, the song will be Jimin’s first official solo release since BTS announced they were going on hiatus to allow the septet’s singers to focus on their solo projects. Jimin becomes the last member of BTS to release a solo project since the band announced they were going on hiatus last year.
At press time, no further information was available on the single, which comes on the heels of solo projects from RM, whose official solo debut album, Indigodropped last month, and Jung Kook, who has already racked up more than 100 million Spotify streams for his single “Dreamers,” which also appeared on the official soundtrack for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Jimin, 27, has previously released solo singles “Lie”, “Filter”, “Promise”, “With You”, his festive “Christmas Love” and more. Last year, the singer dropped some moody photos from his “photo-folio” backstage Me, myself and Jimin’ ID: Chaos‘with 8 images of him portraying his various musical personas.
