Joy nangabog sa album
Natalbugan ni Joy ng Red Velvet ang ibang female idols.
Sa ikalawang solo album niya na “Hello,”
officially iri-release pa lang ngayong araw na ito, June 3, pero ang title track ay nauna nang inilabas noong May 31 ay number one halos sa maraming music chart all-over the world.
Nasa top din ng iTunes Top Album charts in 26 regions including Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Finland, Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Egypt, Qatar, Singapore, Colombia, the Philippines, Brunei, Thailand, Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Mongolia, Taiwan, Guatemala, Laos, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
Ang Hello album ay remake ng mga hit songs mula sa 1990’s to 2000’s.
Sa online conference ni Joy, inamin niya kung gaano siya kakaba sa ikalawang attempt niya na mag-release ng solo album. At kung bakit remake rin ang napili niya.
Ayon dito,“I’ve released solo music as OST’s before, so I thought I wouldn’t be nervous, but I’m so nervous now that it doesn’t feel real. I feel a sense of responsibility for all the people who worked hard to make this album, and I learned a lot while making it.”
“I listened to a lot of songs while choosing music for the album. The songs from the 1990s and 2000s gave me a sense of healing. I loved them. I really like that retro vibe. I’ve even said that I wish I was born earlier so I could’ve lived through those times. I really like that pure, honest vibe that is in the movies and other content from that time. I got a lot of inspiration from the movies,” sabi pa niya,
Nagpasalamat din siya sa mga senior artist na pumayag daw na i-remake niya ang kanta ng mga ito.
“I want to sincerely thank the senior artists who allowed me to remake their songs. Even if I really wanted to sing a song, copyright issues could make it complicated. They are all such great songs that I didn’t want to mess up the emotional aura of the original. I tried to show my own voice and emotions inside those songs instead. There were so many great songs that it was difficult to pick, but I wanted there to be a connecting theme. I used both songs I wanted to sing and songs recommended by others. Fortunately, all the songs that I wanted, I got permission from my seniors to use.”
Personally, hindi na rin kami nagulat kung sobrang init ang pagtanggap sa remake album na ito ni Joy.Among the members of Red Velvet, isa siya sa talagang nakikita na napaka-talented at maganda ang boses.
Ang co-member niya na si Wendy ang nagsilbing host sa nasabing online presscon. Same way nang si Wendy ang mag-launch ng kanyang album, si Joy naman ang nag-host dito.
Nakakakuha rin daw siya ng lakas ng loob mula rito.
“I thought a lot about how Wendy must have gone through the same difficulties when she released her solo album. There are so many people who work hard leading up to the album’s release. I hope a lot of people listen to my album. Wendy sent me a lot of long messages that gave me strength,” pahayag ni Joy.
