4NIAs, better be ready cause HyunA (현아) will be making a hot comeback!
Cube Entertainment has confirmed the singer’s solo comeback date via an official announcement on Tuesday (19th July). They said, “HyunA is making a comeback on 1st August. She is preparing a sexy concept suitable for the summer season.”
Besides that, it was also reported that she is currently filming her new music video and wrapping up her album’s production.
In other news, HyunA was recently seen performing at the “Viral Fest Asia 2016”, a music festival organised by video platform Web TV Asia, in GWK Cultural Park, Bali. Her performance at the international event marks her first solo stage appearance after 4Minute disbanded in June 2016 and she performed several of her hit songs including “Roll Deep”, “Change”, Bubble Pop”, “Ice Cream”, and “Red”.
“Honestly, I was very nervous. I was performing alone and representing K-pop among other international artistes, so it was a challenge. It feels good that K-pop singers are representing Asia. I’m grateful for being able to perform the finale at an event that promotes Asian musicians worldwide,” said the singer during her time on stage.
Watch her performance below:
HyunA, real name Kim Hyuna (김현아), made her debut in 2007 through JYP Entertainment’s Wonder Girls but she departed from the group shortly after releasing their first single, “Irony”. In 2008, she signed with Cube Entertainment and debuted with 4Minute a year later with their first single, “Hot Issue”, which went on to sell 4 million copies. She is the only 4Minute member to renew her contract with CUBE as a solo artiste.
She made her solo debut in 2009 with “Change” and to date, she has released 4 singles/mini-albums: “Bubble Pop!” (2011), “Melting” (2012), “A Talk” (2014), and “A+” (2015). She was also a member of Troublemaker alongside ex-B2ST member, Jang Hyunseung.
