Fans have been eagerly waiting for V’s solo album, which he has been working on for a long time. However, they might have to wait even longer, as the singer recently teased a new solo song that he said he might not release for another 10 years.
V, also known as Kim Taehyung, is one of the vocalists and visual members of the global phenomenon K-pop group BTS. He is known for his unique voice, charismatic stage presence and versatile musical style. He has released several solo songs in the past, such as ‘Singularity’, ‘Stigma’, ‘Winter Bear’ and ‘Sweet Night’. His last original solo release was 2021’s ‘Christmas Tree’, which was part of the soundtrack of the K-drama Our Beloved Summer.
On April 12, 2023, V surprised his fans by holding an impromptu late-night livestream on Weverse, a fan community platform where BTS interacts with their loyal supporters. During the session, he surprised his fans by playing an unreleased song called ‘Maybe’, which he said he wrote and composed himself.
‘Maybe’ is a soothing and jazzy song that showcases V’s smooth vocals and emotional delivery. The lyrics are entirely in English and express the singer’s longing for someone who might not feel the same way. The song features a gentle piano melody, jazzy horns and finger snaps that create a cozy and romantic atmosphere.
However, while playing the song, V also made a shocking remark that left his fans in disbelief. He said that he might “release it sometime after 10 years”, implying that he was not planning to include it in his upcoming solo album which he will release this year.
Fans were stunned by V’s statement and begged him to release the song sooner. They also expressed their admiration for his talent and creativity. Some fans speculated that V was teasing them and that he would actually release the song sooner than he said. Others hoped that he would change his mind and include it in his solo album.
In 2022, Taehyung had said that he hoped to release his solo album by “the end of this year”. However, that did not happen, as he later explained that he had “shelved all those songs and I’m writing new ones”. He also said that making an album was “harder and more complex than I imagined that it would be”.
As of now, there is no official announcement or confirmation on when V’s solo album will be released. Fans are still hoping that it will come out soon and that it will include some of the songs that he has teased before, such as ‘Maybe’. Until then, they will continue to support and love him for his music and personality.
