On September 25, Ailee held a showcase for her third mini album, 'Magazine,' at the Ilchi Art Hall located in Gangnam, Seoul. During this showcase, Ailee talked about having her own work in the album.
Vocal powerhouse Ailee wowed the crowd as she performed her new songs "Don't Touch Me", "Bitten Disease", and "Now It's Goodbye". Afterwards, she spoke to the press about her third mini-album, 'Magazine,' saying, "The first compositions I made in my life are on this album. I made these songs a long time ago. With this album, I wanted to show my growth as an artist."
Ailee's latest mini-album is certainly an impressive collection of diverse tracks, containing hints of Europop, hip hop, medium-tempo pop, and ballads. Her songs "Bitten Disease", "Teardrop", and "Now It's Goodbye" have particularly gained attention for being farewell songs. When prompted on their back story, Ailee replied, "Although it's true that these are farewell songs, they're not based on my personal experiences. They're songs that we all worked on together, so they tell a combined story. Like drawing a picture, we made these songs."
When asked if she was planning on releasing a full-length album anytime soon, Ailee stated, "I want to make a regular album as soon as possible. And so I keep receiving good songs. Because I want to put out good results, I think it's taking longer."
For now, fans will have to be satisfied with Ailee's mini-album release, which is certainly amazing on its own even without being full-length!
