YesAsia Editorial Description

As Big Bang's main vocalist, Tae Yang has stood in the middle of the action since the beginning of the Big Bang explosion in 2006. Tae Yang's main appeal lies in his soulful vocals which encompass many styles including R&B, soul, and hip-hop. Now ready to expel more heat than the blazing sun, Tae Yang releases his first solo mini album HOT containing six ear-popping tracks with delightful contributions from G-Dragon, Teddy of 1TYM, and Kush of Stony Skunk who previously wrote Gummy's recent smash Mianheyo ("I'm Sorry").

Composed by Teddy and Kush, the album's principal track Na man bara bwa ("Only Look At Me" - Track 3) is peppered with highly sensual beats and speaks openly about the double standards for men and women when it comes to cheating. Using a vocoder, Tae Yang offers a twist in his vocals in Gi do ("Prayer" - Track 2), the very song that competed for the principal track spot until the last minute. The song is another of Teddy and Kush's creative collaborations and features Teddy's catchy rap. Other tracks include Je In ("Sinner" - Track 4) which stands out with its pizzicato-style string arrangement and Make Love (Track 6) which features Kush's rap and Gummy's immaculate chorus. Big Bang's leader G-Dragon also shows his hand of support for his longtime pal by writing the intro track Intro-HOT and penning the lyrics for Baby I'm Sorry (Track 5).

신개념 남자 솔로가수의 출현!
빅뱅 ‘태양’ 솔로 데뷔 앨범 [HOT]
명실상부 국내 최고 그룹으로 거듭난 빅뱅의 메인 보컬 태양이 첫 솔로 앨범 [HOT]을 발표, 가요계를 뜨겁게 달군다.

태양은 멤버 모두 뛰어난 역량을 갖춘 빅뱅이라는 그룹 안에서 개인이 보여줄 수 있는 모습이 한정적임에도, 모든 무대마다 최고의 라이브와 그루브 넘치는 댄스로 사람들의 시선을 사로잡았다. 특히 R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop 등으로 대변되는 흑인음악을 좋아하는 이들은 태양이 가진 특유의 솔풀한 음색을 두고 ‘블랙보컬’이라는 애칭을 부여할 만큼 열렬한 지지를 보내고 있다. 이에 태양은 국내 흑인음악의 산실이라 불리는 YG엔터테인먼트에서만 가능한 세련되면서 깊고 느낌 있는 흑인 음악 스타일의 곡들로 채워진 첫 솔로 앨범을 선보이게 됐다.

타이틀곡은 요즘 물오른 프로듀싱 능력을 보이는 1Tym의 Teddy와 거미의 히트곡 ‘미안해요’를 작곡한 Stony Skunk의 Kush가 태양을 위해 합심해서 공동으로 작곡한 <나만 바라봐>. ‘내가 바람 펴도 너는 절대 피지마’라는 가사처럼 여자친구가 자신만을 바라보길 바라면서 정작 자신은 그렇지 못한 남자의 이기적인 마음을 솔직하게 표현한 가사는 특히 남성들에게 어필할 것으로 예상된다. 또한, 감각적인 비트 위에 태양만이 선보일 수 있는 그루브함이 묻어나는 안무로 음악과 퍼포먼스 둘 다 만족스러운 작품의 탄생을 예고한다. <나만 바라봐>와 함께 앨범발매 직전까지 타이틀 경쟁을 벌인 <기도> 역시 Teddy와 Kush가 공동으로 작곡 한 곡. 보코더를 이용한 태양의 보컬이 인상적인 이 곡은 Teddy가 랩피처링으로 참여, 힘을 실어줬다. 태양의 그루브한 감성을 잘 살려낸 R&B곡 "Baby I'm Sorry"에서는 태양의 랩 실력도 엿볼 수 있다.

이외에도 앨범에는 피치카토 스트링 편곡이 인상적인 <죄인>, 태양의 보컬과 거미의 감미로운 코러스, Kush의 랩 피처링이 조화를 이루는 "Make Love" 등 태양의 개성과 장점을 잘 살린 곡들로 채워놨다. 초등학생 때부터 태양과 함께 동고동락해 온 빅뱅의 G-Dragon은 특별히 "Intro-HOT"을 선물했으며, "Baby I'm Sorry"의 작사가로 참여해 태양의 솔로데뷔를 축하해주고 있다. 이번 태양의 솔로 앨범은 누구나 꿈꿔왔지만 쉽게 도전하지 못했던 스타일의 곡들로 채워졌으며, 한동안 침체됐던 국내 가요계의 남자 솔로가수들의 활동에 큰 활력을 불어 넣을 것으로 기대된다.

Excellent Album. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Okay the songs were great. Every single one of them I give 10/10. Taeyang is truly a great artist, as far as i know G-dragon also helped compose and produce a song or two which definitely shows how talented he is. What put me off was the packaging... Now dont get me wrong its definitely unique and HOT. The album is round with these shiny sticker-jewels which are lined around the case. What disappointed me was the fact that i thought it would have been a foam-like material case with a zipper that goes around it...but infact it is made of a cheap soft cardboard that rips pretty easily. I think in terms of innovation YG gets 10 but budget put into producing it 0. It just doesn't do Taeyang justice by using cheap cardboard! even G-Dragon has a plastic face mould this should also!

WOW...Hot is right XD Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I honestly can't belive I just bought this...I put it off for way too long. I just got it in the mail 3 days ago
and it hasn't left my CD player since. It is absolutly amazing. Definetly different from big bang...Youngbae
really has a certian American R&B swagger to him. My favorite song is "sinner"...the beats are just sick.
He works mostly with Teddy and Kush on this album (and of course others!) GD writes one of the songs
"baby I'm sorry"...which is can totally tell GD worked on it with him XD Anyway, the packaging is
really unique and the pics in the booklet are worth the price alone! hehehe...I definetly say BUY IT! XD

perfect!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I should have bought this earlier lol..All songs even the intro are amazing, there's different styles in every song,
you can never get enough of it. The CD case is cool also, i mean very cool, i have never seen such an innovation XDD
and when u open the case, there's a booklet with Taeyang's sexxy pics inside. this solo album is perfect no wonder
why it was so popular last year, i am looking forward to GD's solo album now and also Taeyang&DS's solo album,
Bigbang rocks, no doubt.
