BoA has topped multiple Korean music charts with her pre-release track, ‘Who Are You’, including Naver Music, Olleh Music, Genie and Daum Music.
The track, which features Gaeko, also gained attention as EXO’s Sehun made a special appearance as the leading girl’s blind date. The tracks on her upcoming album, Kiss My Lips, were previously revealed to be produced, written and composed by BoA herself, and with the success of ‘Who Are You’, fans are anticipating the release of the rest of her album.
While she usually stars in her own music videos, model Park Sora starred for the music video of ‘Who Are You’, with BoA only making brief appearances throughout the clip. In the video, the girl goes to meet a guy on a blind date, who ends up being none other than Sehun.
BoA last released her studio album Only One in 2012, which ended up as her best-selling Korean album thus far in terms of digital and physical sales. Her title song and another track titled ‘The Shadow’ were then penned by her, which contrasts greatly with her current album, which will be wholly penned by Boa herself.
Kiss My Lips is slated to be released on May 12.
