[NEWS] GD X TAEYANG’s “GOOD BOY” Originally for BIGBANG: YG Gave it to Unit
YG Entertainment’s new unit GD X TAEYANG revealed that their new song “GOOD BOY” was actually for BIGBANG.
At an interview held in Hongdae on Nov 25 to celebrate the release of GD X TAEYANG’s new song “GOOD BOY,” GD commented, “It is mostly us two working on the songs of BIGBANG. We were making one like a demo CD, and at the time T.O.P was involved in a movie. DAESUNG was in Japan and SEUNGRI was also involved in other things, so us two were working on it,” explaining how “GOOD BOY” came about.
As the two were formed into a new unit, they said, “When Mr YANG heard the song, he suggested we should do it, just the two of us. We joined YG since we were 13, and we featured in each other’s songs but being in a unit is a first. We thought it would be fun, so we light-heartedly accepted it.”
So they were formed into GD X TAEYANG, YG’s first hip-hop project. Their single was unveiled at 0 hour of Nov 21, and it knocked down all 10 major charts immediately after release.
The two showcase a powerful sense of hip-hop. Having spent the last 14 years together, their teamwork is just mind blowing. The track is co-composed by GD, Fliptones, and Freedo while written and rearranged by GD. With the addictive trap beat, GD’s unique rap and melody harmonize with TAEYANG’s groovy singing. The song talks about two men who dream of fairytale-like love, no matter what the society says.
The two best friends will be performing their new track for the first time when they appear on the 16th Mnet Asian Music Awards on Dec 3.
