Jimin’s solo career is booming with the new release “Set Me Free Pt.2”.
After teasing it earlier this week, the BTS star’s new track dropped around midnight via HYBE LABELS, marking the first cut from his upcoming debut solo album. FACE.
Packed with snappy hip-hop beats and Auto-Tuned vocals, Set Me Free Pt.2 is accompanied by an appropriately raunchy music video.
Directed by Oui Kim, Jimin is the center of attention and at the heart of the action as dozens of dancers glide their way through the gloriously choreographed drama.
“First we tried to focus on the performance and express the really intense mood of the song,” Jimin explains in the interview Consequence with a new song and an upcoming album.
“The key was freedom – and we were actually drinking at the time. This is the last song on the album; last feelings. It’s very intense, so I wanted to announce “Jimin solo” in an impressive way.
FACE will be released on March 24. On the same day, Jimin also shares the music video for the second single “Like Crazy”, written by his BTS bandmate RM.
Recently, Jimin made his first solo entry on the Billboard Hot 100 by joining Taeyang on the BIGBANG member’s new single “Vibe.” Earlier this month, the K-pop idol gave ARMY an early gift by uploading his solo tracks “Promise” and “Christmas Love” to streaming services for the first time. (The two songs had previously only been available for streaming on the official BTS Soundcloud or YouTube accounts.)
