Rumors have it that a big collaboration will come between BTS and BigBang. Allegedly, Taeyang will feature Jimin in his alleged solo comeback album in January 2023.

Taeyang is believed to make his much-awaited solo comeback next year after five years. So, will there be a collaboration between him and Jimin?

Industry insiders revealed, via AllKpop, that Jimin would be a featured artist in Taeyang's new solo album. It will be a dream come true for many K-pop fans if this happens.

For starters, the 34-year-old idol put fans into a frenzy after deleting his posts on Twitter and Instagram in October. The move is believed to be part of a digital marketing blitz to hype his alleged solo project.

In fact, Adele and Beyonce did the same before they dropped their respective new albums. So, fans knew Taeyang was up to something when he turned his active socials dark on October 22 and 23, making his profile photo black.

Eagle-eyed fans even noticed that he briefly changed his Instagram bio to "renewal" before it went blank. Hence, his millions of followers and fans alike are convinced that there will be a big announcement about his contract renewal with the music label YG Entertainment is about to come.

Some expect it will be about the release of his new music. To recall, since Taeyang completed his military service in 2019, he only dropped one new song, "Still Life," with his fellow BigBang members in April this year.

His last solo release was "White Night" in 2017, accompanied by a concert tour in 19 cities. Taeyang has been keeping his profile low in recent years.

But when he graced the cover of Marie Claire Korea in September, talks about his comeback began. So to clear the issue, YG finally broke its silence about it and responded to the claims that one of its famous artists is gearing up for a solo return.

In a statement released on December 2, via Soompi, the company neither denied nor admitted that Taeyang would return to the spotlight next year. "Nothing has yet been decided," a spokesperson stated.

That said, the hopes are still high that fans are about to hear new music from Taeyang.

Taeyang is considered one of the most influential acts in the K-pop world. He's part of the iconic boy group BigBang, formed in 2006.

They originally had five members, Taeyang, G-Dragon, T.O.P, Daesung, and Seungri. However, Seungri left the entertainment world after being embroiled in the huge Burning Sun scandal in 2019.
