Seungri of Big Bang will drop his first solo album on July 20.

YG Entertainment released a teaser image on Tuesday through its social media account, hinting that Seungri’s solo album will be titled “The Great Seungri” and the release date will be July 20.

The upcoming record will be the artist’s first solo album, since his debut as a member of mega-hit K-pop act Big Bang in 2006. He has released only EPs and singles as a solo, including the latest record “Let’s Talk About Love” in 2013.

Seungri will also host his first solo concert series, celebrating the release, at the Jangchung Gymnasium in central Seoul on Aug. 4 and 5.

While Big Bang is on a hiatus with four of its bandmates serving their military duty, Seungri has been successful as a businessman. He is the CEO of a ramen business and heads a hip-hop label under YG Entertainment.

The artist plans to join the Army after completing all scheduled activities for this year.
