Taehyung of BTS, also known as V, has been making waves in the global music scene since his debut with the group in 2013. With his distinct voice and unique style, he has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world. Despite not having released any new music since December 2021, V’s popularity on Spotify continues to soar.
V has proven his versatility and creativity as a musician by releasing three solo tracks under BTS’s name—”Stigma” in 2016, “Singularity” in 2018, and “Inner Child” in 2020. He has also released three original soundtracks (OSTs) for different dramas on his Spotify profile under his own name—Christmas Tree in 2021, Sweet Night in 2020, and It’s Definitely You in 2016.
Taehyung’s solo music showcases his unique vocal style and range, which can go from deep and soulful to high and sweet. His songs are often influenced by genres such as R&B, neo-soul, and indie pop. He also expresses his creativity through drawing and photography under the name of Vante, based on his favorite photographer, Ante Badzim.
Taehyung’s popularity as a solo artist is undeniable. He is currently the third most followed K-Pop/Korean soloist on Spotify with 13M followers, behind j-hope who has 14.5M and RM who has 13.4M followers. What’s more impressive is that he achieved this feat despite not releasing any new music since December 2021.
That’s right, Taehyung has not dropped any new solo songs for over 500 days. However, that does not stop his fans from streaming his existing tracks and supporting him on social media. In fact, Taehyung gained 102,288 followers on Spotify in the second week of May. This shows that his music has a lasting appeal and that his popularity is continuing to grow.
But don’t worry, Taehyung is not keeping his fans waiting for nothing. He has hinted that he is working on new music and that he might release it soon. Earlier today, he posted some pictures on his Instagram where he seemingly confirmed that he is recording new music. Earlier this month, a Korean investment firm predicted that V would be releasing his solo music in the third quarter of 2023.
So, what can we expect from Taehyung’s new music? Will it be similar to his previous songs or will it surprise us with something different? We don’t know for sure yet, but we are excited to find out.
Taehyung is a talented and versatile artist who deserves all the recognition and support he gets. He is one of the representative faces of K-Pop on a global level and a role model for many aspiring musicians. He has proven himself as a member of BTS and as a soloist. We can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us next.
