The global popstar Jung Kook of BTS announced the release of his second solo digital single “3D (feat. Jack Harlow)” today via global fandom life platform Weverse. Jung Kook makes his highly-anticipated return two months after the start of his solo journey with “Seven (feat. Latto),” which landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the U.K. Official Chart.
“3D” is a R&B pop track that employs a witty use of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd dimensions to express one’s desire to be connected with someone. BIGHIT MUSIC stated, “Following ‘Seven,’ the new track will showcase Jung Kook’s growth as a solo artist.” Additionally, multiple GRAMMY-nominated rapper, actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Jack Harlow is featured on the track for a world-class collaboration.
On the day of the announcement, Jung Kook set another milestone as the first South Korean solo artist to headline Global Citizen Festival. The playful, versatile performer took the stage with his solo tracks, “Euphoria” and “Still With You,” as well as “Seven (feat. Latto),” which featured a surprise guest appearance from Latto herself. Jung Kook proceeded with a medley of BTS hits in the order of “Permission to Dance,” “Dynamite,” and “‘Butter,” and closed the set with a video that provides the first look into his upcoming single “3D.”
During an interview with Global Citizen, Jung Kook remarked on his participation and said, “Thank you for taking action to be here tonight. Let’s keep making an impact together to make sure everyone, everywhere has access to their basic rights.” “3D (feat. Jack Harlow)” will be available on all streaming platforms worldwide on September 29.
