Launching a solo album is taxing, nerve-racking but ultimately an accomplishment. This is how Girls' Generation member Tiffany felt after establishing herself as a solo K-pop artiste. The singer, in a recent interview, said she had her support system in place during the entire process.
Tiffany said she learnt a lot after watching her bandmate Kim Taeyeon prepare for her solo album. In the true spirit of friendship, the two even exchanged notes, advice and were a source of help. If there was any doubt that Tiffany is intimidated by Taeyeon's solo success, the singer dispelled it.
Allkpop quoted her as saying, "She's a big help, and also my best friend of 12 years."
Tiffany aka Stephanie Young Hwang is the latest member of the SM Entertainment managed band to establish her solo music career. The singer dropped a teaser for "I Just Wanna Dance," the title track of her debut album on Monday, May 9. Tiffany, 26, released the full tracklist on her Instagram account a few days prior to the release of her single.
Earlier, her band member Kim Taeyeon, released a solo album, "I," in October 2015. The EP became a success among fans and the singer grabbed the #1 spot on the Billboard chart for World Music albums.
However, the Girls' Generation member revealed that her album will be different from Taeyeon. "Unlike Taeyeon, I prepared dance performances. I am a bit overwhelmed [as a solo artist], but I am here because I want to present good music," Tiffany said during her solo showcase held on Tuesday, May 10.
