Since Amber debuted as a solo artist back in February, her album “Beautiful” received much attention both in Korea and internationally, specifically gaining attention on Billboard’s World Albums chart where it peaked at #2 and has only been on there for 5 short weeks.
Amber recently sat down with Billboard for an interview to discuss the success of her solo album and to speak about it more in-depth.
She said, “My goal was to give people a better picture of who I was and who I am. “Beautiful’ was something that I kept really close to my heart, that I kept from a lot of people for years and years. It’s my story. And I think that was the first impression I needed to give to people as a solo artist. This is who I am; this is what I’m about.”
“I haven’t said this yet, but my goal for this Beautiful album is not to say, ‘I’m beautiful’ or ‘OK, I’m so cool.’ This is, honestly, an album written for the listeners. That’s what my definition of music is, as an artist. I want to share that message. I’m not just saying ‘OK, you’re beautiful just because you’re beautiful.’ I really, deeply, sincerely mean you are beautiful the way you are.”
