15&. (JYP Entertainment)
Young K-pop vocal duo 15&, consisting of “K-pop Star” season 1 winners Park Ji-min and Baek Ye-rin, has finally released its first full studio album, titled “Sugar.”

The 10-track album was released Monday and came nearly two years after 15& debuted. The album features the title track was written by DEEZ and Andrew Choi, the people behind the duo’s debut single “I Dream” and second single “Somebody.”

While past “K-pop Star” contestants Lee Hi and Akdong Musician made a huge splash on the K-pop charts with their debut releases, Park and Baek have failed to make any lasting impact with any of their releases thus far.

15& previously released its third digital single “Can’t Hide It,” produced by Park Jin-young, on April 13. Although the single did top some of the major local charts, this success was short lived.

The “Sugar” studio album also includes all of 15&’s singles.
