Big Bang tops charts with new single
The two new songs, “Let’s Not Fall in Love” and “Zutter,” are ranked first and second, respectively, in eight major Korean music charts, including Melon and Naver Music.
In addition, it has also topped iTunes charts in various countries such as Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand. “E” is also gaining recognition in Western countries, as it has ranked second in Canada, fourth in the United States and 17th in England.
The two tracks’ music videos are also receiving attention, with each recording around 1.2 million hits within eight hours after being released.
The two songs have distinct musical styles. While “Zutter,” solely performed by G.D. & T.O.P, is addictive rap music, “Let’s Not Love” has a bright and melodic rhythm and revolves around a love story.
The new single became available for preorder on Tuesday and will become available internationally in both online and offline music stores starting Wednesday.
The boy group is scheduled to visit around 15 more countries, including the United States and Canada, beginning Friday as part of their world tour. At the 70 concerts planned, the group will perform for an estimated 1.4 million fans.
