YG Entertainment‘s latest boy group iKON (아이콘) is truly a multi-talented group.

Not only do they know how to get us turnt up to their party “anthem“, they also leave us feeling rather emotional with “Apology (지못미‬)”, the 2nd title track of their double-track single.

Unlike their powerful debut single “Rhythm Ta“, this new song sees the group going for a raw and acoustic sound with subtle hints of hip-hop.

In a way, it is somewhat similar to their single “Airplane” as both songs are slow-tempo hip-hop tracks that tell some pretty sad stories. According to Soompi, the song “describes the emotions of a bad boy going through a breakup”.

Before its release, fans managed to listen to a sneak peek of “Apology” while interacting with the group at the “iKON Night Countdown Live” event through Naver’s official V app.

Many have praised its beautiful piano melody that made it into an ideal track for fall season. The song also showcases the boy’s amazing vocal talent, which we are absolutely in love with.

You can listen to the piano-driver acoustic track and watch its emotional music video below:

Titled “Welcome Back” iKON’s debut album was originally slated for release on 1st November. It was later pushed back to 14th December instead.
