BTS’s Jungkook exudes confidence as he gears up for his solo album release.
In a recent video, Jungkook shared, “I started my solo journey with ‘Seven’ and ‘3D’, but releasing a solo album under my own name feels special. I’m genuinely curious about how everyone will think of it.” He went on to introduce his album Golden, saying, “I use the term ‘the golden hour’ a lot. It feels like a culmination of this very moment, the nickname ‘Golden’ that Namjoon (RM) gave me, and the talents that I have. I also have the ambition to prove myself.”
Expounding on his track “Standing Next to You,” Jungkook expressed his pride. “There were performances in ‘Seven’ and ‘3D’, but I dare say the performance for ‘Standing Next to You’ might be the best yet. I’ve put much effort into it, and I’m eager for everyone to see it.”
Jungkook also discussed collaborating once again with Andrew Watt, who previously worked with him on “Seven.” “Andrew played me another track he had, and more than just being drawn to the song, I felt its grandeur. I visualized how amazing it’d be on stage, so it seemed fitting as the title track for ‘Golden.'”
Reflecting on his solo endeavors, the singer candidly revealed, “While recording and producing, I discovered new things about myself. On the flip side, I also recognized my limitations, like ‘Oh, I still can’t do this,’ and areas I need to improve upon.”
Having achieved international acclaim with “Seven” and “3D,” solidifying his status as a global pop star, Jungkook commented on his strengths as a vocalist and performer. “I’m deeply grateful for the title ‘global pop star,’ though it makes me a tad bashful. I really want to show everyone the best of my singing, dancing, and music. I’m focused on creating my own unique style, so I’m constantly working on my vocal techniques and doing a lot of self-monitoring to keep improving.”
