Ailee to release second full album
Singer Ailee will drop her second full-length album “butterFLY” on July 2, two years and five months after her last EP came out in 2017.
The powerful vocalist has recently contributed songs to the soundtracks of TV dramas and has not released her own music since the last EP.
The songs from the soundtracks have performed well on local music charts, including the immensely popular ballad “I Will Go to You Like the First Snow” (2017) and “Blue Spring” (2018).
