(SEOUL KR) : After lighting up iTunes R&B/Soul charts worldwide this summer with his scintillating solo album, ‘Solar’, Big Bang’s Taeyang brings the heat back with his latest red hot release, ‘Solar International’.
A steamy, sonic collage of his English and Korean hits, Taeyang’s ‘Solar International‘ breaks new ground as it will be the first ever K-Pop music release to be sold worldwide on iTunes as both an audio and video album. The audio version (complete with a digital booklet) hits iTunes stores on August 25th while the video version (bundled with bonus, behind the scenes documentaries) will arrive by September 10th.
Already, the hype and hysteria surrounding ‘Solar International’ has reached a fever pitch with his fans around the world.
Within a week of his music album launch, Taeyang has seen nearly 50,000 sign up for his new Twitter page (http://www.twitter.com/realTaeyang) and over 150,000 join his new Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/Taeyang).
Within 48 hours of opening his new YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/YGTaeyang), Taeyang has tallied a staggering 1,000,000+ hits for his music video, ‘I’ll Be There’.
And within 24 hours of opening official sales on iTunes, Taeyang has triggered pre-orders that have pushed his album into the Top 20 of iTunes R&B/Soul charts in the USA, Canada, and Japan.
Delivering a knockout one-two punch, the audio and video versions of ‘Solar International’ are destined to solidify Taeyang’s status as one of K-Pop’s biggest breakout artists of the year.
