BIGBANG, formed by YG Entertainment, is the hottest Korean artist group consisting of G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri. Since their debut in 2006, BIGBANG has evolved and become known not only for their unique music style but also for their flamboyant fashion sense making them widely worshipped across the globe by world-renowned artists, music lovers and fashionistas alike. Their official YouTube channel has accumulated more than 1.2 billion views, among which their hottest hits – Fantastic Baby, Blue and Bad Boy – have accounted for more than 250 million views.
Their first successful world tour ‘BIGBANG ALIVE TOUR 2012’ attracted more than 800,000 fans taking in 24 cities and 12 countries through 49 incredible shows. After a three-year hiatus, BIGBANG’s comeback with the current world tour and brand new music is creating a buzz among fans all over the world. BIGBANG is on track to break records on their current [MADE] tour that has already sold out multiple dates across Asia and will head to North America in October ahead of the Australian dates.
BIGBANG has been hitting #1 on music charts since May thanks to their comeback project, the “MADE” releases.
The first release of the series, “M”, featuring hit singles Loser and Bae Bae dominated the charts and was followed by “A”’s hugely successful hits Bang Bang Bang and We Like 2 Party.
Bang Bang Bang became a massive summer hit with its upbeat, strong rhythm. The song swept the board in Korea and occupied #1 on iTunes Singles Chart in eleven countries and the top spot on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart in early June, proving the idol group’s global popularity. The song’s video, widely known for its eye-catching look and dynamic performance, has recorded an incredible 40 million-plus views on YouTube.
July saw the third installment drop; the sentimental If You and the cool and exciting Sober from “D” took the #1 spot in TV music shows without any TV performances, highlighting the devotion of BIGBANG fans.
The group is lining up to release the next two tracks Dope and We Should Not Love (tentative translation).
