Now that the once innocent IU has officially become Korea’s #1 whore after having a sleepover with some Super Junior flop, she’s ready to shed her old image once and for all by working with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, better known as Jam & Lewis, and even better known as the dudes behind Janet Jackson’s perfect pre-flop discography.
The new Jam & Lewis tunes will be included in IU’s next Japanese release, which is currently scheduled for release in March. She’s tentatively due to drop her next Korean album in April, but there’s no word yet whether or not these Janet b-sides will make it on there.
IU’s reportedly heading in a more mature direction for her next album, so expect The Nation’s Little Booty Call to deliver her own Can’t Be Tamed / Britney / Janet. / Stripped before the year is out. I’m just kidding. This is still K-pop we’re talking about. IU’s “mature” comeback will probably just consist of one song hidden somewhere in her album where she admits to kissing a dude on the cheek or some shit. But I would be rather slayed to see IU drop her very own “Bloom.” Lord knows that if she keeps working with Jam & Lewis for long enough, she eventually will.
Peep the video below for a glimpse at the IU of the future!
