Why do you think YG didn't promote Park Bom as a soloist more?

    Before her scandal, Park Bom's singles were huge despite having only two of them. Including her features in other artists' songs, her own songs were also hits. Err... to say they were just hits is an understatement, they were mega hits that snatched her a Best Digital Single award in MAMA and topped Gaon charts for weeks. She also featured a lot in other songs most notably Bigbang's. They loved her voice so much that they literally snuck her voice in their song "We Like 2 Party" although very subtle.

    Why do you think YG didn't promote her more as a soloist? Say what you want about her voice or technique but she could have been huge like Taeyeon or IU.




    Here's Bommie's voice in the background in the chorus. It's much more clearer here.

    I wonder about this too, even gd like bom's voice and said that when park bom's voice added it will become a better song.
    edit : it's not because of her scandal, it's because she's under YG

    YG is bit.. idk what to call it, but they aren't that good with promotions in general and it's somewhat hard to land solo under them, you need to work on it yourself. Seungri for example got only permission to do his first solo album if he did it in two weeks that he managed to do. And lot of artist that have solos under YG also write and compose them. So I don't think Bom was really assertive in demanding solo work and then she also lacked skills to write those solo comebacks for herself.

    He just doesn’t know how to properly manage his artists, and I do believe when it comes to them he’s a bit sexist in the way that he handles female and male artists.

    All of his artists have been mistreated at some point or another but for some reason he’s especially like that to his female artists - most noticeably Lee Hi as of recent. I’ve always loved Bom’s voice, vocal technique may not be the best but her voice was truly one of a kind for me. I would have hoped he had given her more solos even before the scandal but he didn’t.

    I wish his female artists would leave the company and promote on their own, but without YG I’m not they would get far. I’d like to think they would.

    As far as I know, Taeyang wasn't too involved in the composition of his albums too. I think he was only really active in writing songs with his White Night album.

    YG is too selfish to invest in especially female soloists. Sometimes this makes me think that the other soloists invest in in their work themselves.

    Bom would have done better if she was in another agency.

    he or/and G-Dragon were heavily involved in taeyang's title tracks prior white night album. and both combined would compose over half the albums so there's that.

    I like to believe the latter. Even if Bom doesn't write songs, the fact that her singles blew in SK should have been enough indicator already that she was heading for success. They could have at least gave her an album to test how well she would do. I mean even her features were successful.

    To get a solo under YG, you have to heavily demand it. Taeyang and Seungri did. Even Bobby mentioned in an interview that he was after them for 2 years for a solo album.

    Dara keeps talking about wanting a solo album too, but when Henry called YG on a variety show asking on her behalf, YG replied that she had not contacted them about it.

    I don't think Bom was ever really demanded for one.

    That, and YG's a misogynist.

    Based on their track record, it's a fact not an accusation anymore.
