The queen of ballads, Zia finally returns with a new full-length album, “Avancer” after pre-releasing two singles last month. There are a total of eleven tracks composed by Korea’s top composers from the likes of Jun Hae Sung, G Gorilla, Kim Do Hun, Lee Hyung Seung, and Brown Eyed Girls’ Je-A. The title track is “The Way I Am” which was composed by Jun Hae Sung and penned by Choi Gap Won. It is a sad ballad number of holding on to a lover, but at the same time not feeling good enough for him. The piano and string melody harmonizes well with the singer’s voice. Ha Dong Gyun also features at the end of the song. The sub-title track is “First Day of Breakup”, a G Gorilla composition. It is very different from Zi-A’s usual style, showing yet another side of the singer.
