A Side by Side Look at iKons B-Day and Bling Bling

After what feels like an eternity, rookie boy group iKon finally emerges to grace K-pop with a comeback. The concept of iKons comeback is admittedly a new beginning and a new style. First up to the bat is their album New Kids : Begin with two title tracks, Bling Bling and B-Day. Both of them are party songs but each has its own distinct style when it comes to sound and visuals.

The first difference between the two songs is the beat and sound; while both are upbeat, each one reaches its goal in a different way. Bling Bling  starts off with what is the baseline for the song an upbeat tone that is likely the doing of a saxophone. The sax fades out during the individual rap verses and quietly comes back in the pre-chorus. It makes for a very catchy entrance and does a great job of hooking the listener with a few notes while bringing it back at key moments just when you might think the song gets too comfortable.
