Brace yourselves, iKON (아이콘) fans.
After all that waiting and teasing, YG Entertainment‘s latest boy group is coming to town a new party “anthem” that will leave you craving for more of their unique hip-hop sound.
On 16th November, the 7-member boy group has finally dropped “Anthem”, one of their latest singles. Before its release, they held a “iKON Night Countdown Live” event and interacted with their fans through Naver’s official V app.
Similar to their debut single “Rhythm Ta“, this new song leaned towards the more hip-hop/dance-infused side of their music. The energetic track was apparently composed and written by “Double B”, the group’s rapper duo that is comprised of members B.I and Bobby.
The song was released alongside its official music video.
Presented in black-and-white, the video opens with the boys walking on an empty street in their grungy street outfits while repeatedly singing “iKON is coming to town”. They soon begin to sing their respective verses and make us bopping along to the hypnotic beats, especially during its chorus part.

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