Singapore Army, this is not a drill. Yes, Suga is finally heading to Singapore this June! Suga and Big Hit Music officially announced last Valentine’s Day that he would be embarking on his first solo concert tour.
Min Yoon-gi, who also takes the stage name Suga and the moniker Agust D as a solo artist, is slated to kick off his concert tour in the United States this April before heading to Asia from May to June. Billed under Agust D, it can be remembered that the South Korean rapper, singer-songwriter, and producer has already released two mixtapes under the same name in 2016 (Agust D) and 2020 (D-2).
As per the press release: “Suga is globally known for his record-producing ability with his own solid musical philosophy, constantly pushing the boundaries through his works on BTS albums, solo projects, and collaborations with other artists. Since BTS’ 2014 albums Skool Luv Affair, BTS’ albums include tracks produced by SUGA. Through his mixtapes under Agust D, SUGA also suggested his vision as an artist. He participated as featured artist in music by international musicians, such as Juice WRLD, Max, and So-ra Lee, and he also produced music for globally influential artists, including Halsey, PSY, Epik High, ØMI, and more.” Some of the hit singles created by Suga include People, So Far Away, and Daechwita.
