It looks like there’s a tight competition going on between CNBLUE’s Yonghwa and SHINee’s Jonghyun as Yonghwa’s talent agency FNC Entertainment has announced that his 1st solo album will include collaborations with 4 talented artistes too.
Jonghyun’s agency SM Entertainment earlier announced that Jonghyun is collaborating with Wheesung, Younha, IRON, and Zion.T for his 1st mini album, “BASE”. The song he co-composed with Zion.T was released online yesterday while the album is expected to drop on 12th Jan.
However, it seems like FNC Entertainment is using the same tactic to share news of Yonghwa’s 1st solo album as the agency teased fans with a teaser image of the collaborations on an official homepage for Jung Yonghwa’s solo album.
According to Soompi, the agency stated that Yonghwa has collaborated with 4 artistes who are talented in various genres for his solo album. The identity of the artistes will be revealed on January 7, 11, 12, and 13.
On 7th Jan, FNC Entertainment revealed one of the artistes that will be featured in Yonghwa’s 1st solo album on the website. It has been revealed that Yonghwa has collaborated with South Korean Yang hip-hop artiste Yang Dong Geun/YDG for a track called “Mileage”.
Prior to the release of the song, Yonghwa uploaded a picture of him with YDG via Twitter, hinting at the genre of the song through his hip-hop outfits.

I think it will be a complete album where each song will be good. Jung Yonghwa collaborated with various artists to create music that I’m confident fans will greatly enjoy.
