NEW KIDS: BEGIN - EP
iKON may have titled their EP NEW KIDS, but this release is more of a homecoming: Both "BLING BLING" and "B-DAY" play to the hard-hitting hip-hop for which the septet initially became known. The former is a boastful banger in which the boy band brags about their long list of successes over regal horns. "B-DAY" is a clever take on living the good life, with the guys relating their worlds to buzzing bees sipping on honey. Fans who enjoyed iKON's 2015 singles like "DUMB & DUMBER" will welcome this return to fierceness.
