MINO’s new song ‘FIANCÉ’ dominated Korean music charts.
The title song ‘FIANCÉ’ from MINO’s first solo album released on the 26th at 6 PM topped major Korean real-time charts including Melon, which is Korea’s largest music platform. The song is maintaining its no. 1 spot on platforms including Mnet, Melon, Olleh, Bugs, Soribada, and Genie as of today (27th) at9 AM.
MINO’s hard work and effort of participating in the writing, composing, and producing of all 12 tracks from the album paid off. Not only the title song ‘FIANCÉ’, but also other listed songs successfully charted-in, receiving broad love from the public.
As MINO and JENNIE dominated the no. 1 and no. 2 spot on music charts, YG proved its massive influence on music charts. JENNIE’s ‘SOLO’ which maintained its no. 1 spot for 15 days is currently at no. 2 only after ‘FIANCÉ’. The two artists proved YG’s power while competing each other in good faith.
MINO also proved his global popularity as a solo artist through results in global iTunes charts. The album ‘XX’ topped iTunes Album Charts in 17 different countries including Argentina, Bolivia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Romania, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam. The title song ‘FIANCÉ’ also topped iTunes Song Charts in 9 different regions (now #1 in 18 countries).
US Billboard also spotlighted the release of MINO’s first solo album. On November 26 (local time), Billboard praised MINO by writing, “WINNER’s MINO made a comeback with a new genre incorporating elements of trot into Hip-Hop” and added, “The MV inspired by traditional Korean culture and beauty also impressed the viewers”.
The song ‘FIANCÉ’ samples ‘Soyanggang Maid’, a popular song from the 70s. By doing so, the song adds elements of old Korean songs into the genre of Hip-Hop with sophistication. MINO created his unique genre with the unique crossover of Hip-Hop and trot. The unique and original combination of the two genres is creating waves in the K-Pop scene.
‘FIANCÉ’ includes a familiar melody with fresh variations on its rhythm, while the catchy melody and lyrics of the hook captures the listeners’ ears in an instant. The melody created through electric organs stick into ones’ ears while the lyrics that metaphorically state someone that’s missed as ‘fiancé’ or ‘blue bird’ sounds new and brilliant.
After captivating the public’s years with his solo album released in 5 years since debut, MINO will present new unexpected charms through JTBC’s ‘Idol Room’ airing today at 6:30 PM.
