iKON - Apology

YG continues his strange (and frustrating) 2015 promo plan of sidelining the vast majority of his artists and instead blitzing us with multiple releases by just two groups. First it was Bigbang, and now it's iKON (who are pushed to be Bigbang's successors). Luckily, they released a great mini album six weeks ago and their newest pair of singles are very good too. These two tracks (the somber Apology and aggressive Anthem) sound even more Bigbangy than ever, most likely due to the fact that they've been co-created by Teddy, one of Bigbang and G-Dragon's go-to collaborators. I was struck particularly by Apology the first time I heard it. It's just a beautiful rock/hip-hop ballad. Yes, it sounds exactly how you'd expect a YG track of this nature to sound like, but I guess if it's not broken, don't fix it. The music video is gorgeously shot as well.

(If you decide to buy K-Pop physical album releases -- and my god you should, because they're awesomely presented -- try catchopcd for some of the best prices out there. Use this link to get 5% off your first order!)
