[Music Talk Talk] YANG HYUN SUK’s favorite “IF YOU”, what kind of song would it be?
BIGBANG’s new song “IF YOU” is drawing a big attention from in and out of the music scene, even before its release. What would be the appeal of this song that made YG’s head YANG HYUN SUK get so deeply touched? YANG picked “IF YOU” as his favorite song in BIGBANG’s recent comeback albums.
BIGBANG releases “IF YOU”, the first title for their new single to be released on the 1 of next month. The song’s poster that shows members’ sentimental faces against a pale pink background is catching the eyes with a new mood completely different from other posters of “MADE” project. That indicates that the new song will also show another color of BIGBANG different from other “MADE” songs released so far. It is known as the most sentimental song ever among all BIGBANG songs released since their debut.
Music insiders have speculated that the new song to be released by BIGBANG in this summer will be an unprecedentedly good one. Their songs released in May and June heated up BIGBANG’s comeback project, and then new songs to be released in the following months will be the climax, they expected.
That song could be “IF YOU” or not, but one thing certain is that the song is “something different” in the history of BIGBANG’s music. Already, many artists and staff have made remarks on their SNS, about their impression on “IF YOU”.
YANG HYUN SUK explained the sentimental aspect of the song, saying, “I was overwhelmed with my emotions, while listening to the song. I think it is the saddest-ever song among all BIGBANG songs released for the past nine years. I’m in my forties but overwhelmed by the song, then this song will make not only teenagers and twenty-somethings but also people from all generations burst into tears.” He went on to make an exceptional remark, “I think it is the first time for me to get more excited than BIGBANG members themselves about their new release”.
YANG also explained why BIGBANG is releasing a sad and slow song in the hot summer season. He said, “Of course I liked all the songs BIGBANG released in ‘MADE’ series, but I thought ‘IF YOU’ should be released now if other people could feel the same way as I did. Personally, it is my favorite song”.
YANG continued to say, “The two BIGBANG songs to be released in July are completely different ones, as one is an exciting summer song and the other is a sentimental song. Notably, ‘IF YOU’ is a genuine ballad, so even GD and T.O.P who usually do rapping sang for the song. It will be a whole new experience for fans”.
The saddest-ever song in BIGBANG’s history, YANG HYUN SUK’s favorite song in the new album, and a ballad that will make listeners burst into tears in this hot summer season. That seems to be a sufficient reason to try “IF YOU”. BIGBANG member G-DRAGON took part in composing and writing the lyrics of the song. Plus, PK who composed BIGBANG’s “MONSTER” and Dee.P who worked for TAEYANG’s “EYES, NOSE, LIPS” arranged it.
In “MADE” project, BIGBANG released “LOSER” and “BAE BAE” on May 1, and “BANG BANG BANG” and “WE LIKE 2 PARTY” on June 1. The four songs are recording a long-run, still staying in top places on music charts.
BIGBANG in this July will be sad but cheerful. Another song that BIGBANG will release in line with “IF YOU” is “SOBER”, an exciting and cheerful summer song. As such, BIGBANG releases a sentimental song and exciting song at the same time. Another round of “BIGBANG vs. BIGBANG” competition is about to begin.
