[NEWS] JYJ’s Junsu discusses his thoughts on releasing his solo album, ‘Tarantallegra’

On May 16th, JYJ‘s Junsu attended a press conference for the release of ‘Tarantallegra‘ and shared his thoughts on producing his first solo album.

Junsu expressed, “For the first time in eight years, I’ve released my very own solo album under the name XIA. There was the pressure of having to fill an entire album with only my voice, but I’m proud that I was able to try the genres I’ve always wanted to, with a concept I personally came up with.”

The ‘Tarantallegra’ album is comprised of 12 tracks, and 8 of them are personal compositions by Junsu. Rappers GaekoFlowsik, and Bizzy are also featured in the album, while fellow JYJ memberJaejoong gifted him with track “No Gain“, which is a nice balance between the ballads and dance tracks.

Junsu continued, “The album was inevitably a tiring production, because I was making it under the notion of knowing that I could not promote it on broadcast shows, but that’s why I paid more attention to the quality of my music video and the album itself. Fortunately, I was left with a lot more freedom of expression.”

XIA will be holding a solo concert on the 19th and 20th.
