As several members of the popular boy band BTS begin their mandatory military service, V, also known as Kim Taehyung, has exciting news for ARMY worldwide. The beloved vocalist and performer has officially announced his first solo album titled Layover, which is set to drop on September 8.

According to a Pop Crave report, Layover will feature six songs, including “Rainy Days”, “Blue”, “Love Me Again”, “Slow Dancing”, “For Us”, and a yet-to-be-titled track. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the album.

Hee Jin Min, the CEO of ADOR, a subsidiary of the prominent K-pop powerhouse Hybe, has played a pivotal role in guiding the creative direction of the album.

BTS has been no stranger to individual success on the global stage, with several members dominating the charts with their solo projects. In 2023, Suga and Jimin’s individual endeavors, “Agust D” and “Face” respectively, soared to No 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. In 2022, rapper J-Hope released “Jack in the Box”, and RM unveiled “Indigo”. The singers witnessed notable chart successes with their solo albums. Additionally, Jung Kook is currently making waves with his debut solo single “Seven”, which made it to the Hot 100 chart.

The members of the boy band stopped performing together after a few among them went for mandatory military service. On Monday, the group’s record label BigHit Music announced that another band member, Suga, is set to begin his military service. The statement read, “Hello. This is BigHit Music. We would like to inform our fans that Suga has initiated the military enlistment process by applying for the termination of his enlistment postponement. We will inform you of further updates in due course.”

It further read, “We ask you for your continued love and support for Suga until he completes his military service and safely returns. Our company will spare no effort in providing support for our artiste. Thank you.”
