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 Highs 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 iKONs energy. B-DAY contains witty lyrics that compare the members of iKON to bees and will showcase the groups signature cool vibe.
