Heize was not able to receive her award on "Music Bank." She is currently not promoting on music shows, according to Soompi.
"You, Clouds, Rain" is from Heize's most recent album "///." The song is dominating streaming sites such as Melon, Naver Music, and Mnet recently.
Another solo artist who is making quite a loud buzz is rapper Zico. This is a great achievement for solo artists in the K-pop music industry, which is traditionally dominated by girl and boy groups.
