After a notable six-year hiatus, Jessica Jung, the celebrated former member of GIRLS’ GENERATION, has made a striking comeback with her mini-album BEEP BEEP. In a candid revelation, Jessica shares the journey and the challenges she faced in bringing this album to life.
The Wait for BEEP BEEP
Released on November 22, BEEP BEEP marks Jessica’s first musical venture since My Decade in 2017. In an exclusive interview with MyDaily, Jessica expressed both her astonishment at how time flew and her excitement about the album’s release. The sophisticated pop song title track BEEP BEEP playfully captures the nuances of love.
The Creative Process
Jessica emphasized her continuous work on music over the years, focusing on curating a collection of songs that resonated with her. Her desire to release music that truly reflected her taste and artistic vision drove this meticulous process.
Honesty with Fans
One of the most challenging aspects for Jessica was the feeling of misleading her fans when discussing the album’s release. She often found herself promising an imminent release, which inevitably led to a sense of guilt as the album’s launch was delayed. Now, with BEEP BEEP out, Jessica feels a sense of pride and relief in finally fulfilling her promise to her fans.
For Jessica, the quality and fit of the songs were paramount. She believed in releasing an album that genuinely suited her taste, rather than rushing the process. This dedication to authenticity is evident in BEEP BEEP, which she regards as a significant achievement.
Musical Maturity and Message
Jessica aspires to continue maturing musically, and BEEP BEEP represents her current artistic identity. She was actively involved in the creation of the album, particularly in the track Better Late Than Never, which she chose as the opening song. This track, about love and personal growth, holds a special meaning for her.
BEEP BEEP features six tracks, each showcasing Jessica’s unique style and musical evolution. The album includes the title track BEEP BEEP, Better Late than Never, Get it? Got it? Good (Feat. Amber Liu), Best Summer, Set Me Free, and the Korean version of BEEP BEEP.
