It’s been well over a year since AOA’s leader Jimin had a solo project, but she’s back this week with Hallelujah.

The track is a latin pop dance track with a sexy feel, and this time, rather than collaborating with another artist, Jimin collaborated with W Korea magazine to launch her comeback, Ready to Jimin – #RTJ.

26-year-old Shin Jimin is the leader and main rapper of FNC girls group AOA. She debuted with the group in 2012, and is a member of subunit AOA Black. She’s known for being able to speak Chinese thanks to a study abroad stint in her younger years, plus being able to play the piano, harmonica and guitar. In 2015 she was a semi-finalist on the female rap show Unpretty Rapstar and released two successful collabs from the show.

In total contrast to that sexy rap image, her first official solo release was the gentler Call You Bae with EXO’s Xiumin, last year.

Jimin’s had a busy year so far, as AOA released their first studio album Angel’s Knock, celebrated their 5th anniversary, and as we reported, she was recently in London.
