K-pop singer Minzy, who was a member of the former girl group 2NE1, has released her debut English-language single ALL OF YOU SAY.
The release – on December 1 in the United States, and on Monday in other countries, including South Korea – coincides with her solo “DANCE BREAK TOUR” of North America, which started on November 21 and will end on Sunday.
She is the latest K-pop performer to focus on the US market – which also includes the group BLACKPINK – following the huge success of BTS, the seven-member boy band which this year topped the American Billboard album chart and performed sell-out concerts in North America.
Minzy’s track ALL OF YOU SAY is a combination of K-pop, reggaeton and hip-hop.
The singer, 24, whose real name is Gong Min-ji, made her debut as one of four member of 2NE1 with the digital single album Lollipop in 2009.
The group enjoyed great success, thanks to hits including Fire, I Don't Care, and Come Back Home, before disbanding in 2016.
Minzy left her former group’s agency YG Entertainment the same year and joined The Music Works.
