SEVENTEEN releases their 8th mini album “Your choice” with a new lead single “Ready to love“
The album title is not only a reference to the members’ deepened maturity, but it also underscores the evident growth of SEVENTEEN’s sensibility and musicality as artists, especially when dealing with a multifaceted emotion such as love.
Comprised of six tracks: “Heaven’s Cloud,” the lead single “Ready to love,” “Anyone,” “GAM3 BO1” (Hip-hop team), “Wave” (Performance team), and “Same dream, same mind, same night” (Vocal team), SEVENTEEN’s genre-diverse EP paints a kaleidoscopic illustration of the kind of love they want to sing of and their various ways of expressing such emotions.
The R&B-based pop lead single “Ready to love” marks the band’s first collaboration with producers “hitman” bang and Wonderkid of HYBE’s labels. Members WOOZI, S.COUPS, and MINGYU also participated in penning the lyrics while WOOZI also participated in its composition.
SEVENTEEN will debut “Ready to love” on U.S. television for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on June 23 (local time). The performance follows the act’s high-octane appearances on The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this year.
Most recently, their 3rd full-length album An Ode (released in September 2019) surpassed a million copies in sales, firmly establishing the act as a triple million selling artist. They also graced the cover of Seventeen Magazine, were featured in TIME’s roundup of “Songs and Albums That Defined K-Pop’s Monumental Year in 2020”, and landed on several “Best of 2020” lists such as Billboard, BuzzFeed, and Teen Vogue.
