BIG BANG Releases Highly Anticipated ‘MADE’ album
Title tracks ‘Fxxk It’ & ‘Last Dance’ top all major Korean charts
When the clock struck midnight today, South Korean mega-group Big Bang finally dropped their long overdue album, ‘MADE’, kicking off a new cycle of promotion before the 5 members enlist in their 2-year mandatory military service from next year.
Compiled of 11 tracks, including previously released hit singles such as ‘Bae Bae’, ‘Bang Bang Bang’, and ‘Loser’, ‘MADE’ marks the group’s first studio album in 8 years following a string of EPs and worldwide concerts. Three brand new songs also feature - ‘Fxxk It’, ‘Last Dance’, & ‘Girlfriend’- the first two headlining as the album's title tracks.
‘Fxxk It’ is an addictive electro-pop/rap that had us hooked instantly, where the boys’ vocals shine in laid-back confidence. While the lyrics spell out their punch-drunk love for a girl, the video stays true to the group’s aesthetic in which G-Dragon, Taeyang, T.O.P, Seungri, and Daesung fool around Seoul city at night. ‘Last Dance’ changes things up, delivering a heartfelt ballad that serves as a bittersweet farewell to their fans.
Shortly after release, the tracks topped all major music charts in Korea while 'MADE' had taken the No.3 spot on the US iTunes chart. The album is available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify. Check out ‘Fxxk It’ and ‘Last Dance' right below:
