This energetic song has solidified Somi as a solo artist to look out for. Immediately after “Birthday” was released, Somi became a trending topic on Twitter.

#SomiBirthdayDebut,” one fan tweeted. Another wrote, “This is totally a bop! from baby somi to queen somi real quick! Totally loving the song.”
Somi opened up about the exciting track and what it means. “‘Birthday’ is the day of birth,” she said, according to Soompi. “It also has the meaning as the day I was reborn as a solo singer. ‘Outta My Head’ is my self-composed song. I didn’t have any idea of writing lyrics and composing, but my company producers helped me. I experienced the pain of creating for the first time.”
The singer got her start in the music industry as a member of the K-pop group I.O.I. She also came in first place in Mnet’s survival reality program Produce 101.
