BTS member Min Yoon-gi, also known as Suga or Agust D, released his debut album “D-Day” on April 21, with 10 songs. 

It is nice to see him release his own music, but he will always be better with BTS. This goes for all the members. Some of them have released their own albums but when they perform as a whole you can hear each of their own sounds better. 

The album features other artists, too, including BTS member J-hope, Woosung, IU and Ryuichi Sakamoto. 

Since this is Korean pop music, Yoon-gi sings and raps in mostly Korean, but it doesn’t matter if you can’t understand it sometimes, because the amount of passion in his voice says enough.  

As a member of BTS, Yoon-gi also has other famous songs like “Butter,” “Dynamite,” “Permission To Dance” and many more. He also produces many songs with other artists such as BTS member Jungkook, PSY, Halsey and more. 

The album ranked No. 1 in many countries including France, Germany, Greece, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. 

Along with the album, he released a movie on Disney Plus about composing and producing it. 

Yoon-gi does have a few older mix tapes such as “Daechwita” which is more aggressive and more upbeat on his previous album D-2. 

Some of the songs I like are “D-Day,” “Snooze,” and “SDL.” 

“D-Day” is a bit slower, and I felt like I could relate to it more. I felt like it is saying not to worry too much about your future and that it will work out. 

“Snooze” features Woosung from the Korean band, The Rose and I love his voice. So, when they add a rapper and a rock band singer along with a producer it sounds awesome. 

“SDL” has more English words than other songs on the album, and it’s honestly catchy to me. I could also hear Yoon-gi’s voice a lot more than his rapping.

This album’s songs are more put together than the mix tapes Yoon-gi has released because those just sound-like songs that he made and wanted to release for people to hear.

The album feels like a story of his future and what might happen with his love life along with the heartbreak. Then, it’s him accepting it and saying with his song “Life goes on.” This is something I would play when I am mad and want to scream in the car or listen with the stereo up loud.
