Our favorite leader is back!
On the 8th of June 2017, YG Entertainment released BIGBANG‘s leader, G-Dragon‘s, 2nd solo mini album as well as the music video for one of its tracks. This is GD‘s first solo comeback since his hit album “Coup D’État” released in 2013.
As stated in previous articles, GD‘s new album, entitled “Kwon Ji Yong“, is really different from the previous ones as it tells the artist’s life in depth and is more personal. The album is composed of five tracks that were all written and composed by G-Dragon‘s himself. According to the agency, a total of three music videos will be released. As of now, you can check out the full tracklist below:
“Kwon Ji Yong” – Tracklist:
- Intro: Middle Fingers-Up
- Act I: Bullshit
- Act II: Super Star
- Act III: Untitled, 2014 (Title)
- Outro: Divina Commedia
On the same day, the company released the music video for “Untitled, 2014“, one of three music videos to be released. The MV is super artistic, showing close ups of GD accompanied by a background with moving clouds and changing colors. It’s super aesthetic and as always, GD looks super good. As for the song, it’s different from what we’re used to, it’s more sentimental and calm. Amazing as expected!
