Hello
This is YG Entertainment

Big Bang’s Taeyang will be coming out with [Where U At] after 1 year & 5 months since his last solo release.

Taeyang, who left a strong impression on audiences & critics alike with his first solo mini-album [HOT], with hit singles including “Look Only At Me” & “Prayer,” received recognition as the famous idol group, Big Bang’s lead singer, as well as a solo artist through his mini-album.

This Digital Single, “Where U At” was composed & written by Teddy, who brought sensation to the music industry with songs the songs he produced such as “Look Only At Me” & “Prayer” from last year, to this years’ “Lollipop,” 2NE1’s “Fire” & “I Don’t Care.”

The lyrics for “Where U At” were written in consideration of 22-year-old Taeyang, who has never had a girlfriend. The touchy story is reflective of Taeyang’s situation, imagining his future girlfriend who’s out there somewhere.

Much to expect from Taeyang as to what type of style & music he’s going to promote with his activities beginning with “Where U At” to his official album, so please take interest & give support.

Thank you.

DIGITAL SINGLE WILL BE RELEASED on OCTOBER 15th, 11:00AM online.

1: I DON’T CARE MV

July 1st was set to be the release date of the “I Don’t Care” MV, but production delays have postponed the date to July 8th, same day as their mini-album release.

YG apologizes for “being too greedy” b/c he had them shoot additional scenes last Saturday, which also added to the delay of its premiere…

2: I DON’T CARE PROMOTION ACTIVITIES

1st broadcast/performance to promote the song is scheduled for July 10th on KBS Music Bank.
“Pretty Boy,” a song from their new mini-album is expected to launch w/ “I Don’t Care”, to be performed on INKIGAYO on July 12th.

YG reminds us that “Pretty Boy” was used in the opening montage for 2NE1 on SBS INKIGAYO.
“A lot of fans thought, ‘What if this song is going to be on the mini-album?’… & you were right.”

THE GIST:

it’s been 8 months since he last posted a “YG Message” … back in 2001 he first started this to deliver the official news straight to the fans, wanting to tell them personally.

but since recently he’s been planning so many things, they were subject to change without notice (YES THEY DID -.-) & the fans didn’t like this, so he would like to APOLOGIZE for this behavior. (apology accepted.)

also, he would like to assure the fans that any news coming from sources other than associations w/ YG to be taken lightly or as “prior information” instead of anything being official, & that only the “Message from YG” would have accurate info on his plans, since he wrote it himself. so fans, take news lightly until they are officially confirmed.

A LOT MORE UNDER THE CUT ———————————>

THE GIST:

  • D.I.S.C.O. Album finally came out today, with participations from all of YG: Teddy, Kush, Perry, G-Dragon, & features from TOP & CL.
  • YB’s Concert date is confirmed to be on July 20th at the Melon AX Hall, 5PM-8PM.
  • he will perform all the songs from his mini-album, including his solos via BIG BANG.
    • the boyz from Big Bang will be there to support YB as guests & will play a minor role in his concert.
      -hence, the reason why “look only at me” friend & choreographer,
      shaun evaristo is back in town to help YB out ^^
  • as you all know, GD released his version of “look only at me, part 2″. MR. YG clears all your frustrations up & gives you this explanation:
  • YG apparently knows all that goes on, as he is aware of the many complaints from VIPZ about the whole “copying YB’s song”
  • YG, Teddy, & Kush’s reaction was basically a “…?????” wouldn’t VIPZ be happy to have updates on news coming out?
  • he clears up the fact that GD initially didn’t want his version to be released, but YG insisted.
  • THE TRUTH WAS… when Teddy & Kush originally composed the song, they thought the best BB member that would match the ‘bad boy’ lyrics would be GD. & he did, in fact, record this song about the same time as YB.

  • BUT… since YB was working on his solo album at the time, & really liked the song after hearing it, arrangements were made to have the song be released with YB’s mini-album.
    • “you may think that the attention will shift towards GD instead of YB, but having this release would actually boost attention towards the original version. both parties gain attention, regardless, & GD gets the PM.”

“I hope everyone got an answer through this. “

  • Sadly, DS isn’t making an MV for his trot song (& i, being the official BB MV director, am SO DISAPPOINTED ^^), but you can see from his live performances, that this song was made to be sung live, and as a present to the fans. Similarly, GD will NOT be making an MV to promote the song.“I hope you will think of this song as a present to fans who love YB’s song.”
  • As Big Bang ends their promotions next spring, GD will hopefully release his solo album soon after. SInce he’s on top of his game, we expect this project to move ahead smoothly, as this solo project has been in the makings for a few months now.
  • Daesung is to appear in the musical, “CATS” in September. although he was worried with all his TV appearances & BB promos, he really wants to be a part of this musical.
  • T.O.P is appearing in the drama titled, ‘IRIS’ in a supporting role. & he might also take on the starring role of another drama yet to be known.
    • but he’s currently spending a lot of time in the studio, working on his composing. although he just started, T.O.P is producing amazing results & YG only expects good things to come out of it.

P.S.: he will be spending his weekend with uhm jung hwa for her comeback performance.

  • Seung Ri, the experienced actor (as i’d deem him lol) got casted in a supporting role in the movie titled, “WHY DID YOU COME TO MY HOUSE” with kang hye jung, a new YG Family actress. “isn’t it surprising?”

YG trying to be funny: “when TOP appeared in a drama, SR memorized all of his script. now he finally gets his own script to memorize.” 😄

Mr. YG has confidence that SR will do well in his acting endeavors, as he recently saw him act in his musical. ^^
