Taeyang of Big Bang, nickname Sol, real name Young Bae has branched out into a full album as a soloist! Of course he's not leaving the band or anything, if I'm right this is the 2nd member to get a full solo album under their belt after G-Dragon.
Taeyang's album is called Solar, maybe its a play of words? Well the title track is "I Need A Girl" featuring Big Bang rapper G-Dragon to up the hype, but to push the limit even more Sandara of 2NE1 is featured in the same music video! Preferably as the "girl he needs" and G-D as the "guy I need" haha.
I Need A Girl (ft. G-Dragon) MV (ft. Sandara of 2NE1):
The MV! Many might be super uncomfortable at how Dara & Taeyang get so close in this mv, but its very PG! And in my opinion really hillarious! Taeyang is so so goofy haha. That part where Dara shows a shirt of Taeyang's face to the other guys, then he winked was absolutely crack-up!
Was it really necessary for him to go shirtless with his rock solid abs like crystal? I don't understand how Dara could stand standing there! Well towards the end she did fall to laughing really hard haha, shoot I would too! lol. I think I need a doctor to explain to me how I turn into melted Jell-O pudding the second G-D pops out of the screen. Haha I wanna watch again!

Panda says: With Taeyang being the main vocals of Big Bang I was looking forward to this album to see what side of hip hop he's on, but sadly the hype didn't deliver for me. I think its more to Pop than R&B or Hip Hop. The album is very cheery, happy and up-beat. I had no idea it would be like that, but the part that disappointed me was that none of the tracks were memorable enough. Aside from my favorites now Where U At & Wedding Dress, it was an obvious choice I Need A Girl would be the title track.
If you feel like you would enjoy this more than I do, then go ahead & take a listen! =D
Here are some pretty concept pics:
