IU will be making her comeback soon, and surprise, surprise, G-Dragon will be joining her!
The 23-year-old singer is gearing up for the release of her 4th studio album, “palette”, and dropped her track list yesterday (Thursday, 13th April) to tease fans.
While her comeback was already highly anticipated, the participation of BIGBANG’s G-Dragon has raised the curiosity of fans even further. Not only will he be providing his vocals for “Palette (팔레트)”, the talented rapper also wrote the lyrics for the title track.
This isn’t the first time a BIGBANG member has collaborated with IU. In 2011, the talented singer worked with Seungri on “I Know”, a track off the latter’s debut solo album. IU is also known to be a huge fangirl of Taeyang and has named him as her ideal type.
Aside from working together with G-Dragon, the album also saw another high profile collaboration between IU and Oh Hyuk of indie band Hyukoh. Made public on 7th April, “Can’t Love You Anymore (사랑이 잘)” was a pre-release track for “palette”.
IU has also shown her talent in songwriting, having been credited as songwriter in 9 tracks off her upcoming album. To top things off, her music video for “Ending Scene (이런 엔딩)” will star K-Drama heartthrob Kim Soo Hyun!

With so many stellar collaborations, we can’t wait for the release of “palette” on 21st April!
