Rolling Stone rates G-Dragon song



G-Dragon has gotten a thumbs-up from U.S. music magazine Rolling Stone. In the Oct. 24 edition, the publication gave G-Dragon’s new song “Crayon” three out of five stars. Meanwhile, the online community, consisting of readers and listeners, gave the same song full points.

Rolling Stone described the song as “a smashing synthesis of pidgin rap,” saying the song is sung in Korean with sporadic English like “why so serious” and “get your cray on” throughout.

It is the first time the magazine has reviewed a K-pop song.

Meanwhile, the Big Bang member’s “One of a Kind” solo album has been well received worldwide.

Since being released last month, the title track as well as “Crayon,” “Missing You” and the explicit “That XX” have dominated music charts nationwide.

Big Bang is also doing well as a group as it soldiers on with its “Alive” tour.

Last weekend the band performed for Indonesian fans. Next month, the group will perform in the United States.
