BTS Jimin will officially become the next member to mark his solo debut.
Jimin had been sparking rumors that he would be debuting as a solo artist as HYBE revealed its plans for its artists. According to the company, two members would release solo albums this year.
After a long wait, the label officially confirmed its plans for the idol’s future schedule.
BTS Jimin To Mark Solo Debut
Sports DongA reported Monday that Jimin is preparing to release his solo project in February. The report came out after the idol collaborated with BIGBANG member Taeyang in his comeback music, Vibe.
Following the emergence of the update, a source from BIGHIT MUSIC confirmed it but offered a limited detail about its plans.
“The [release] schedule will be revealed once it is finalized,” the company said.
Jimin would be the next and fourth member of BTS to have a solo debut. Previously, J-Hope, Jin and RM released their respective solo music projects, with the group’s leader as the most recent one with Indigo.
Jimin was named the next solo artist from BTS after he was constantly seen working in a studio with several producers and artists on Instagram and Twitter inside a studio. One of them was DJ and producer Hudson Mohawke, who posed alongside HYBE’s in-house producers Ghostloop and Pdogg.
The BTS member was previously spotted with producer Steven Franks, recording artist Taylor Hill, singer-songwriter Alex Karlsson, Tommy Brown and singer-songwriter Gabriel Brandes.

“I was really happy,” he said. “Because I happily released a song with Youngbae hyung, and I will soon come to find all of you through a live.”
Taeyang released Vibe on Jan. 13, marking his first collaboration song with Jimin.
