Tiffany Young

The singer-songwriter's new artistic statement surpasses her initial solo stats from 2016.

Tiffany Young first made her solo Billboard debut in 2016, but after a long journey that included coming back to live in America, refreshing her entire professional team and becoming "Born Again" as an artist, the star can say the hard work is paying off.

The singer-songwriter's new Lips on Lips EP debuts at No. 9 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart and No. 30 on the Independent Albums chart this week. The five-track set sold 1,000 downloads and earned earned 380,000 on-demand audio streams in the week ending Feb. 28, according to Nielsen Music. Previous to Lips on Lips, Tiff entered the charts with her K-pop release I Just Wanna Dance released in 2016 that peaked at No. 10 on Heatseekers and No. 49 on Independent Albums.

An EP that's been more than a year in making since Tiffany's departure of former label SM Entertainment, Lips on Lips marks her biggest artistic statement yet with writing credits on nearly every track that detail her journey from then to now. From kicking off the project with the moving and surging synth-pop reintroduction statement in "Born Again" to songs that showcase her growth into an artist that is introspective with a message (see the acoustic leaning anthem "Not Barbie"), playful (the trappy title track) and showcasing maturity in her lyrics and vocal deliveries (like standouts like "The Flower" and her Babyface duet "Runaway"). All in all, the EP acts just as a satisfactory-yet-teasing appetizer to what Tiffany Young can offer in a full-course, full-length album.

Young is currently on the road promoting Lips on Lips throughout North America with her showcase tour that began in Toronto on March 3.
