solo singers


Q: It’s your first solo album since debuting ten years ago?
First of all, I can’t believe Girls’ Generation is celebrating ten years.  In that regard, it was also new to debut as a solo singer. I would like to thank everyone who afforded me this special opportunity.

Q: You’ve been credited as a writer for six songs?
There’s a total of 7 songs on this album.  Except for the title song, I took part in writing the other six songs because I wanted to challenge myself in portraying my own sensibility.

Q: Composing isn’t easy, where did you get the inspiration from?
I thought about some of the experiences that I’ve had and incorporated them into writing song lyrics after coming up with a fitting story.

Q: Selecting the title song ‘Don’t Say No’ must have been a rigorous process?
It wasn’t originally the title song.  However, it was a song created by Kenzie who also composed, 'Into the New World.’  I happened to like the song too, so in the end, the hard work had paid off.

Q: Overall, the album gives off a much different tone than Girls’ Generation?
To be the honest, the agency was against this concept. They suggested a girl strumming on her guitar kind of concept when I said that kind of image didn’t fit me since I am older now.  Girls Generation had a different concept from what I wanted to illustrate.  I wanted to naturally present my mature side.

Q: Is there anything you got out of from this?
The results aren’t really that important.  I am satisfied by the fact that I could present my own colors to the audience.  I was able to show a mature Seohyun as opposed to the sweet Seohyun from Girls’ Generation.  I will continue to strive for the best.

If Tae became a farmer and Jungkook pursued his dream as a solo singer, I think Tae will be his number 1 fan. Tae would probably go to fansigns and Jungkook will all in love with him. Dispatch will then release a news of a famous singer who is dating a farmer in Daegu.

See One Direction's Louis Tomlinson Debut 'Just Hold On' on 'X Factor'
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson debuted "Just Hold On," his collaboration with Steve Aoki, on 'The X Factor UK,' just days after his mother's death.

Louis Tomlinson became the latest One Direction member to embark on a solo career as the singer performed his debut single “Just Hold On,” his collaboration with Steve Aoki, on The X Factor UK.

Tomlinson, along with his One Direction band mates – who attended Saturday’s performance in support of the singer – were first discovered on the X Factor stage in 2010.

Tomlinson’s debut solo performance came just days after it was announced that his mother, Johannah Deakin, died after a battle with leukemia at the age of 43. Following “Just Hold On,” judge Simon Cowell praised Tomlinson’s ability to perform while mourning his mother.

“What you’ve just done… the bravery… I respect you as an artist and I respect you as a person,” Cowell told Tomlinson. “Your mum was so proud of you, Louis, she was so looking forward to tonight, she’s watching down on you now and you’ve done her proud.”

Tomlinson said that his mother would have wanted him to performance on The X Factor, Telegraph reports.

“That was harder than I ever imagined,” Tomlinson tweeted Saturday. “I want to thank everyone around me and all of the amazing fans out there that made that so special!”

Following the performance, the studio version of Tomlinson and Aoki’s “Just Hold On” was released to digital music services.

I don't understand what Louis is implying by taking pics with important people in Columbia??

Why does he need to imply anything. What you failed to notice is that The VP of Columbia posted that pic, Louis did not. Louis Tomlinson is not only a part of the biggest boyband in the world , he now is also a successful solo singer who is making big waves in the EDM world. He is further a good businessman and has a huge and powerful fan following. Mike Mathewson understands how important Louis is, n wants to show that he met him. Its called networking and understanding the power players.
