There are only a few days left before I’m Da One finally makes its way onto the market on June 25. This week brought us an MV teaser for the album’s title song and a few amusing album covers that are on the complete opposite spectrum of earlier concept photos. Let’s have a look at King Jo Kwon on his throne.
JO KWON – “I’M DA ONE” MV TEASER
After the release of two very solid prelude tracks, we were surprised to see “I’m Da One” in the MV headline rather than “Animal.” From what can be heard in the teaser, the album’s lead single is very safe in comparison to the darker, wilder song that fits the Dark Jo Kwon image teasers much better.
However, it may be a little too early to weigh in on how dark the video will be. The song is light and happy, but the teaser begins with the story of a frivolous king who danced all day and ignored the starving people outside his palace walls. We see some foreshadowing potential here for a rebellion/uprising.
I’M DA ONE ALBUM COVER
We fully expect to find 3-D classes in the album packaging too. Make it happen, Big Hit.
Each of the pieces make some sense individually, but what’s going on with the big picture of Jo Kwon’s solo debut? Tell us what you think in the comments section.
