On the June 8 airing of SBS powerFM's 'Choi Hwa Jung's Power Time,' EXID appeared and answered questions from the listeners.

Solji was asked how many octaves she can sing, and she replied, "7 octaves...?" but without confidence. She admitted, "Honestly, I'm not quite sure. To tell the truth, my singing parts have a lot of high notes, so I wish that there would be less high notes in the future. Or don't make me go on a diet. I need to eat a lot for me to hit even higher notes," causing laughter.

The members said, "Actually, after debut, she had no strength, so Solji even cried once," surprising fans. They continued, "When we go to the karaoke, even we can't sing our own songs well. Only Solji can."

Stop making her go on a diet!  Let her eat and sing to her heart's content so we can enjoy even greater singing from this talented artist! Thanks.

pretty sure there's some sarcasm in her reply that hasn't translated over to everyone here >.>

She obviously has a great voice and her vocal range and high notes are quite impressive but I believe there must have been some mistake on the translation since 7 octaves is a lot and is almost impossible to achieve.

People in the kpop industry have absolutely NO idea what an octave is. A full octave is 8 notes. 7 octaves would be like from, say, C2 (which is in the bass range for men) to C9 (which is RIDICULOUSLY high for a human voice and practically IMPOSSIBLE for even the best coloratura sopranos in opera), because C2-C3 is 1 octave, C3-C4 would be the 2nd octave, C4-C5 would be the 3rd octave, and so on. Solji does not have 7 octaves. One high note to another high note is not an octave. A lot of songs in kpop only span from 1.5 to 2.5 octaves.

Guinness World Records *claims* that 10 OCTAVES is the current most ever. See my URL in my message just below this one.

For reference --> ... http :// www . guinnessworldrecords . com/world-records/greatest-vocal-range-female ... They claim 10 OCTAVES ... I have my doubts ... ;-)

(Joking) This was achieved via a COSMETIC SURGEON implanting a DOG WHISTLE in the THROAT of the 'World Record Holder' for OCTAVES! ... ;-)

7? Srsly? Does she have any music knowledge? I've thought the largest ranges had Axl Rose and Mariah Carey and they have like 5/5.5 octaves vocal range.

seonbae Thursday, June 9, 2016

(I mean by popular singers, opera singers could probably have a wider range) and I know the record is 10 octaves and previous record was 8 octaves, but 7 seem impossible. But if it's true, I want to see and hear her sing those notes.

Yes, a 4 OCTAVE RANGE for singing (NO FALSETTO cheating) is VERY RARE. Most people are lucky to have a decent 2 OCTAVE RANGE.

1 octave is from one do to another do is it? if so, 7 octave is crazy man. solji? wow!

kitteauaena akira_1 Thursday, June 9, 2016

she doesn't have 7 octaves. Like most people in kpop don't know what an octave truly is. For example, people were calling IU's 3 high notes in Good Day "3 octave notes" when she wasn't even singing in 3 octaves at all.
