Canadian-Dutch-Korean singer-songwriter Jeon So-mi has released her debut studio album, “XOXO.”
The full-length album includes the singer’s previous released singles “DUMB DUMB,” “Birthday,” “What You Waiting For” and “Outta My Head.”
On October 1, 2021, Jeon So-mi, well known as the winner of the first installation of the Produce 101 competition series and a member of the series’ temporary project girl group I.O.I, uploaded an image of a pile of albums, with title XOXO and her name printed on them, onto her Instagram post with the caption “Soon to be yours x̷o̷x̷o̷.”
On October 14, The Black Label announced that Somi is scheduled to make a comeback with her first full-length album XOXO at the end of the month. In the following week Jeon revealed the release date and shared the tracklist of the album through her social media accounts.
Born Ennik Somi Douma, she began to venture out as a soloist following the conclusion of group activities under her then agency JYP Entertainment. She eventually left JYP Entertainment and joined The Black Label and made her solo debut with the digital single “Birthday” and B-side track “Outta My Head” in June 2019.
Jeon made two comebacks following year-long breaks with digital singles “What You Waiting For” in July 2020, and “Dumb Dumb” in August 2021. In the press conference for “Dumb Dumb”, Jeon shared that she had “spent the past year practicing and recording a lot of songs apart from “Dumb Dumb” … and there’s a lot more coming.”
With more new music on the way, SOMI is sure to continue her rise to the forefront of the global pop scene.
XOXO out now on all streaming platforms.
