Hey there, music lovers! We’re thrilled to announce that the incredibly talented MIN, former member of Miss A, is back with a bang! Her brand-new EP ‘PRIME TIME’ dropped on June 21st, 2024, and it’s a game-changer. This four-track project showcases MIN’s artistic evolution, blending different genres and featuring a killer lead single, “PRIME TIME,” in collaboration with the fierce rapper Lil Cherry.

MIN’s journey in music started when she was just a kid, grooving to legends like Michael Jackson, Prince, and Destiny’s Child. Inspired by K-pop pioneer BoA, she chased her dream of becoming a performer and debuted in 2010 with the iconic girl group Miss A under JYP Entertainment. Miss A’s massive success catapulted MIN into the global spotlight, but it also came with its fair share of challenges. Reflecting on her K-pop days, MIN shares, “After existing within the K-pop industry for so long, I felt as though I had to exist within a certain mold, look a certain way, dress a certain way, etc.” This quest for authenticity led her to New York, where she embraced her true self.

The EP ‘PRIME TIME’ is a reflection of MIN’s journey toward self-discovery and empowerment. It’s a testament to her determination to create music that truly resonates with her. “It was just really natural and flowed in accordance with what I wanted to hear and create,” MIN explains. This organic recording process was a refreshing change for her, free from external pressures or deadlines.

The title track “PRIME TIME” is a powerful anthem about breaking free from the constraints of her K-pop past. Featuring the dynamic Lil Cherry, the song blends vibrant pop melodies with edgy rap verses and electronic elements, creating a fresh and captivating sound. MIN hopes “PRIME TIME” inspires listeners to embrace their individuality and feel confident in their own skin.

The final track, “Happy Plant (A Call From Grandma),” is a heartfelt piece with special meaning for MIN. It features a recorded phone conversation with her grandmother in Korea, discussing the rare blooming of their happy plant (Dracaena fragrans). This touching exchange parallels life’s transient nature, emphasizing the importance of cherishing the special people in our lives.

MIN shares, “I hope that this EP empowers people, instilling hope and confidence to live the way they’d like without having to answer to critics and naysayers.”

MIN’s transition from the structured world of K-pop to the vibrant music scene in New York has profoundly impacted her artistry, and ‘PRIME TIME’ showcases her newfound freedom and sound. In addition to her solo career, MIN made her Broadway debut in the groundbreaking musical “KPOP,” proving her versatility as an artist and performer. Her accomplishments with Miss A and her continued success highlight her enduring talent and resilience.

To celebrate the release of ‘PRIME TIME,’ MIN is hosting a special event in New York on Friday, June 21st, 2024. Doors open at 6:30 PM, with the main event from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. This event will feature the first live performance of the EP, offering fans an exclusive experience of MIN’s latest work. Don’t miss out – get your tickets here!
