[NEWS] 130910 The Making of G-Dragon’s "COUP D’ ETAT" – "BLACK" featuring Kim Jennie

“Black” feat. Jennie Kim
Produced by: Teddy

Teddy: “That’s been in my computer for two years. The original version has me rapping on the first verse and Lydia singing on the hook. I liked it, and I wanted to keep it for myself, since it was very personal. But then GD heard it one day, and went, “Oh, shit. Let me get on this.” [Laughs.]

When you have a girlfriend, there are many things that are irritating every day, every night. When you fight, it gets really annoying. You can’t do anything, so you end up just getting angry by yourself. Like punching the wall, or throwing your cell phone across the room. – G-Dragon

G-Dragon: “It’s a love song; it’s a bit more personal. When you have a girlfriend, there are many things that are irritating every day, every night. I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but when you fight, it gets really annoying. You can’t do anything, so you end up just getting angry by yourself. Like punching the wall, or throwing your cell phone across the room. You know those types of feelings.”

Teddy: “As soon as he took it, he did the second verse. I thought it was going to be hard for him to write the second verse and stay on topic, since the record’s so vague and personal. But surprisingly he nailed it.

“Like ‘R.O.D.’ the hook was a process. Sky Ferreira recorded a version. Lydia had the original version in English. Then the boss came in, and pointed out that this song needs to be bigger, and said we should make a Korean version of the hook. So GD and I wrote the hook one day, and I recorded Jennie myself two days later. I don’t know much about Jennie’s personal information, but YG recommended that she’d be perfect for the song. Jennie heard Lydia’s demo like 10 times, and we recorded her version of the hook in less than five days before the album dropped.”

[YG-LIFE] 130908 YG’s newbie Jennie Kim makes surprise appearance on Inkigayo with G-DRAGON

G-DRAGON, who is dominating the South Korean music market since his release of 2nd regular album, delivered a comeback performance on SBS’s Inkigayo on Sept 8.

He performed 3 songs in total including ‘Niliria’, ‘Black’, and ‘Go’, all of which are unveiled on television for the first time.

But what aroused much attention is YG’s upcoming new girl group member Jennie Kim who appeared on stage with him to feature in one of the songs.

Jennie Kim featured in ‘Black’, while last year she acted in GD’s ‘That xx’ music video. She is just 17. Every time her photograph was revealed to the public, her foreign look brought much excitement. And on the day of GD’s comeback on Inkigayo, she made her first television appearance.

Meanwhile, G-DRAGON adopted a unique promotional method where he not only reveals the title songs of the new album but also the entire track list.

His album is essentially a work of perfection as all of the songs are being listed from rank #1 to 10 on major music charts. As he devoted a year worth of time in the album, he is shifting his focus on promoting the entire album instead of just one song.

On next week’s Inkigayo, he will be showcasing the already beloved ‘Crooked’, which is an epitome of his charms.

On Sept 10, G-DRAGON’s first ever exhibition ‘G-DRAGON SPACE 8’ will be launched at Cais Gallery in Cheongdam-dong, which will display his photographs including the unrevealed ones, along with outfits and props used for World Tour.

Anyone who owns a paid-ticket to his solo World Tour Final Concert on Aug 31 and Sept 1, and who holds the entrance ticket enclosed in his 2nd regular album will be allowed to enter the gallery.

On Sept 13, he will be releasing his 2nd regular album offline, which includes different versions of ‘Window’ and ‘Black’.

G-Dragon appeared in SBS music show “INKIGAYO” and gave an official comeback performance for his second full solo album, by singing three of his new songs “Niliria”, “Black”, and “Go”.

Upon coming upon the stage, G-Dragon took hold of it. Singing the first song “Niliria”, he got into the traditional Korean folk song rhythm of the song.

He also displayed a special talent in emotional rap, singing the second song “Black” for which YG’s new artist Jennie Kim featured, attracting much attention.

The last song “Go” overwhelmed the audience, with a rather shocking big wig which created a perfect look on him, as well as an amusing performance.

Plus, the stage costume lived up to G-Dragon’s reputation as a fashionista. The hip-hop costume, black suit, and unique hat and wig all added up to the colorful style of his comeback performance.<

G-Dragon released 12 new songs among the tracks in his second solo full album “COUP D’ETAT” separately on the 2 and 5 this month, and the new songs have shown a great momentum to sweep number one places in most music charts in and out of the country.

On the 13, G-Dragon will disclose another version of “WINDOW”, and “Black” and officially release his album off-line.

Meanwhile, KARA, BTOB, Sunmi, Bumkey, Henry, ZE:A, SPICA, Tasty, LADIES’ CODE, as well as G-Dragon appeared in “INKIGAYO” on the day.<

Apart from featuring in G-DRAGON’s newly released song, she was also an actor in his ‘That XX’ music video last year. Her sporadic appearance is heightening fans’ expectations for her debut.

Korean Romanization

내 심장의 색깔은 black
시커멓게 타버려 just like that
틈만 나면 유리를 깨부수고
피가 난 손을 보고
난 왜 이럴까 왜

네 미소는 빛나는 gold
하지만 말투는 feel so cold
갈수록 날 너무 닮아가
가끔씩은 karma가
뒤쫓는 것 같아

사랑의 본명은 분명히 증오
희망은 실망과 절망의 부모
어느새 내 얼굴에 드리워진 그림자가
너란 빛에서 생긴 걸 몰랐을까

너와 내 사이에 시간은 멈춘 지 오래
언제나 고통의 원인은 오해
하기야 나도 날 모르는데
네가 날 알아주길 바라는
것 그 자체가 오해

사람들은 다 애써 웃지
진실을 숨긴 채
그저 행복한 것처럼
사랑이란 말 속 가려진
거짓을 숨긴 채
마치 영원할 것처럼

우울한 내 세상의 색깔은 black
처음과 끝은 변해 흑과 백
사람이란 간사해 가끔
헛된 망상에 들어
정말 난 왜 이럴까 왜

그 입술은 새빨간 red
거짓말처럼 새빨갛게
갈수록 둘만의 언어가
서로 가진 color가 안 맞는 것 같아

사랑의 본명은 분명히 증오
희망은 실망과 절망의 부모
어느새 내 얼굴에 드리워진 그림자가
너란 빛에서 생긴 걸 몰랐을까

너를 만나고 남은 건
끝 없는 고뇌
날마다 시련과 시험의 연속 고개
이젠 이별을 노래해 네게 고해
이건 내 마지막 고해

사람들은 다 애써 웃지
진실을 숨긴 채
그저 행복한 것처럼
사랑이란 말 속 가려진
거짓을 숨긴 채
마치 영원할 것처럼

Someday 세상의 끝에
홀로 버려진 채
널 그리워 할지도 yeah
Someday 슬픔의 끝에
나 길들여진 채
끝내 후회 할지도 몰라

나 돌아갈게 내가 왔던
그 길로 BLACK
너와 내가 뜨거웠던
그 여름은 IT’S BEEN TO LONG
나 돌아갈게 내가 왔던
그 길로 BLACK
너와 내가 뜨거웠던
그 여름은 IT’S BEEN TO LONG

English Translation

The color of my heart is black
It was burnt to black, just like that
I break glass whenever I feel like
And I look at my bloody hands and think,
Why am I like this why?

Your smile is shining gold
But the way you speak, feel so cold
As time goes by, you’re becoming more like me
Sometimes I feel like karma
Is running after me

The real name of love is definitely hatred
Hope is the parent of disappointment and despair
Why didn’t I know that the shadow that has casted over my face
Was created from the light called, you

It has been a while since the time between you and I
Has stopped, misunderstanding is always the cause of pain
Well I don’t even know myself
So my hope for you to know me
Is a misunderstanding itself

People smile with an effort,
Hiding the truth
As if they’re happy
While hiding the lie
In the word love
As if it will be forever

The color of my gloomy world is black
The beginning and end change, black and white
People are cunning,
Sometime become delusional
Really why am I like this, why

Those lips are red, just like red lies
As time goes by,
The language between the two
The colors that each one has don’t mesh, yeah

The real name of love is definitely hatred
Hope is the parent of disappointment and despair
Why didn’t I know that the shadow that has casted over my face
Was created from the light called, you

Since I’ve met you agony is the only thing left
Everyday is series of hills
Of hardships and temptation
Now I sing of breaking up, I tell you
This is my last confession

People smile with an effort,
Hiding the truth
As if they’re happy
While hiding the lie
In the word love
As if it will be forever

Someday when I’m left
At the edge of the world alone
I might miss you yeah
Someday when I’m tamed
To the edge of sadness
I might regret at the end

I’m going to go back to the way
I came from, black
The summer when you and I were hot,
It’s been too long
I’m going to go back to the way
I came from, black
The summer when you and I were hot,
It’s been too long

Fade away fade away
Fade away fade away
Fade away fade away
Fade away fade away/p>

[YG-LIFE] 130821 YG: "The new girl group will be revealed this year at the earliest"

YG was initially planning to reveal a girl group before a boy group. “Frankly, I did want to produce a girl group just like them. Pretty and talented, that’s what people want.” He initially chose scores of attractive girls, but now remains just six because the rest lacked the talent he wanted. “I am still not 100% satisfied with what we have, and we don’t know if the group will consist of 6 or 5 members.” The new girl group will be revealed this year at the earliest, and the beginning of next year at the latest.

[NEWS] 130820 Yang Hyun Suk Says He Still Wants to Debut a Girl Group Like SNSD

After teasing the debut of a new YG girl group earlier this year, Yang Hyun Suk surprised K-Pop fans with plans to debut a male idol group through Mnet’s upcoming survival program WIN: Who is Next.

130820 yg

A production presentation for the show was held at the Conrad Hotel Grand Ballroom in Seoul on August 20, where Yang Hyun Suk revealed what caused him to shift gears.

“To be honest, I wanted to make a group like SNSD, because that’s not my area of expertise,” said Yang Hyun Suk. “But I’ve always wondered what a pretty girl group doing hip hop would look like.”

As fans know, such a girl group was on track to make its debut, however, Yang Hyun Suk halted the process, revealing “Ultimately, they were short of the talent I was looking for. I wasn’t 100 percent satisfied and couldn’t debut them.”

Still, Yang Hyun Suk added that he hasn’t completely folded plans to debut a girl group and that plans for its debut are underway.

Meanwhile, WIN: Who is Next, which will pit two teams of male idol trainees against each other in survival battles, is set to premiere on August 23 on Mnet and tvN.
