G-Dragon, a member of BIGBANG, takes back the title of “The King of Korean Hip Hop” with their first comeback song “Still Life” in four years.
On April 5th, BIGBANG, including G-Dragon, Taeyang, T.O.P, and Daesung, finally released their digital single “Still Life” and returned to the music scene.
Based on the warm band sound, “Still Life” captivated listeners with its emotional chord progression while the lyrics containing the heavy feelings of BIGBANG members touched people’s hearts.
G-Dragon, T.O.P, and Kush participated in the lyrics of “Still Life.”
G-Dragon‘s part, which starts with “Four seasons with no reason,” is said to be a “punchline” for every phrase.
“A happy end instead of sorrow after the rain” can also be interpreted as “Unhappy days have come to an end, now there’s only a happy end,” people speculated.
The lyrics of “A seven-colored rainbow slanted like a sneer/Passed the seasons without maturing, I can’t mature (still)/Immature and long gone without maturing/Marchin’ Vivaldi Tchaikovsky, greeting the seasons of today/Finally, the four at last” gave ecstasy beyond beauty.
Fans confessed that those lyrics have touched their hearts, saying, “I miss all of us who have cried, I keep remembering those brilliant days, the days that I loved.“
Netizens responded enthusiastically, saying, “He must have had goosebump even after writing it himself,” “Punchlines that are at the lever of Ma Dong-seok’s fist,” “Another level,” “He’s a genius,” and “He has gained back the top spot of the Korean hip-hop scene after four years.”
BIGBANG, which debuted in 2006, has produced numerous hit songs such as “Lie,” “HARU HARU,” “LOSER” and “Bang Bang Bang.”
G-Dragon has written and composed most of BIGBANG‘s songs.
