Wonho has released his first official English solo track and music video. Following the songs release, the K-Pop star had #WONHO_LosingYou_MV trending #1 worldwide on Twitter. The song is also currently in the #1 spot on the iTunes K-Pop Singles Chart and is climbing up the iTunes all genres single chart.
“Losing You” is a song dedicated to Wonho’s fans as a thank you for always sticking by his side. The song is a love song but most importantly, “a song dedicated tot he fans who thought they might have lost him.”
“For me, “Losing You” is about the connection between people, and the selflessness of loving someone so much that you’ll become one with them and they become even more important to you than yourself.” -Wonho
Late last year the K-Pop star left K-Pop group Monsta X for reasons that are still not 100% clear. His fans tirelessly put forth efforts to show him he wasn’t alone at the time. They went as far as starting fundraisers, paying for billboards in Times Square, China, and all over the world, participating in marches, and more.
As told by Forbes, “…fans had shown their support for the artist by sending the 2017 song “From Zero,” a special track co-written and produced by Wonho, to No. 1 on Billboard’s Wold Digital Song Sales chard to help probe his continuing viability and commercial appeal as an artist, songwriter, and producer.”
His fanbase’s new name is Wenne, and the fandom represents the special bond between Wonho and his fans, who have been there to support him through the ups and downs.
The release of this song is the first step forward in building his solo career. Wonho is currently signed with Highline Entertainment, which is a subsidiary label of Starship Entertainment. Back in early April the K-Pop star also joined Maverick Management’s roster who also represents major artists like Britney Spears, Madonna, The Weeknd, and more.
