You’ve heard BIGBANG’s “Loser” and “Bae Bae” (MADE Series M), as well as “Bang Bang Bang” and “We Like 2 Party” (MADE Series A). But nothing will prepare you for “If You” (MADE Series D), and YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk is testament to that.
Last week, both G-Dragon and Taeyang released teaser photos hinting at their appearance changes for MADE Series D. After which, the official “If You” poster was revealed, an artwork that exudes seriousness and “somberness”, somewhat.
And now, Yang Hyun Suk has revealed that “If You” is the saddest song that BIGBANG has ever written and spoke about the upcoming release for MADE Series D.
He was quoted as saying:
When I listened to the song, there was a moment where my heart skipped a beat. It is the saddest song BIGBANG has released since their debut nine years ago. If I, who is in my 40s, becomes this emotional from the song, I believe those in their teens and twenties will definitely shed tears together. I think this is the first time I’m more excited about a release than BIGBANG.
He went on to reveal that “If You” is by far his favourite song out of the “MADE” album. Knowing Yang Hyun Suk, a compliment like that is hard to come by so we’ll have to take his word for it ;)
In addition, he also stated that the 2nd track that will be released, “Sober,” will be a summer song to contrast the sad “If You” track.
“If You” and “Sober” will be released on 1st July as part of their third “MADE” release, MADE series D. The releases will uphold BIGBANG’s promise to release 2 new singles every month from May until August. In September, BIGBANG will finally reveal their full album, MADE.
Aherm, it’s time to whip out that waterproof mascara and boxes of Kleenex to best prepare ourselves for the release of “If You”, VIPs.
