On May 22, iKON held an interview to commemorate the release of their new single “NEW KIDS: BEGIN” and leader B.I revealed that Psy and Epik High’s Tablo are big influences for him as a musician.
He explained, “I got to know Psy through the survival program I was in, and we talk a lot about music and I get advice from him.” He also added, “I worked on ‘BLING BLING’ with a kid who was born on January 1, 2000.”
The new single features two title tracks, “BLING BLING” and “B-DAY.” The first track will combine a brass sound with 808 drums to reflect iKON’s energy. “B-DAY” contains witty lyrics that compare the members of iKON to bees and will showcase the group’s signature cool vibe.
