NEW MUSIC: TAEYEON | WEEKEND
Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon is sweeping the charts with the return of her new single "Weekend" along with the music video. Following its release, the song ranked No. 1 on various music streaming sites, including Genie, Bugs, and VIBE. The song also topped iTunes Top Songs charts in 14 different regions, including United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Peru, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Cambodia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Luxembourg. “Weekend” placed No. 1 on QQ Music’s digital album sales chart in China. “Weekend” is a disco-pop genre song with bright guitar and retro synth sounds. The lyrics express the wish to escape the dullness of everyday life and enjoy a carefree weekend. Taeyeon will promote her new song on music programs this week, starting with Mnet’s “M Countdown” on July 8 and continuing with KBS2’s “Music Bank” on July 9, MBC’s “Music Core” on July 10, and SBS’s “Inkigayo” on July 11. "Weekend" is Taeyeon’s first release in over six months since her fourth Korean-language mini-album "What Do I Call You," which dropped last December. That project also featured the previously released single "Happy."
