J-pop rapper CHANMINA is set to drop her second studio album called Never Grow Up this summer. 

The album will be the breakout artist’s first release under Warner Music. She had planned on crowning her latest project as a 20-year-old with this title, to reflect her intention of staying young at heart in a positive way as she legally becomes an adult in Japan. 

The 13-track set will include “Doctor,” the song that boosted her profile outside of Japan, “PAIN IS BEAUTY,” written right before turning 20, and “I'm a Pop,” which features her singing in Japanese, Korean, and English for the first time. The limited first edition will include a bonus track. 

The cover artwork and artist photos feature a rainbow of colors, each representing the various elements that comprise CHANMINA the artist. The teaser video shares some footage from the making of these still images. 

CHANMINA’s new album Never Grow Up drops Aug. 7.
