WINNER released a new EP titled “OUR TWENTY FOR” at 4 PM on August 4. It’s been exactly four months since WINNER released “FATE NUMBER FOR” in April.
YG artists usually take long breaks to make high quality albums. But WINNER has made a comeback only after four months, which is a rare case for an YG artist. This shows that they have that much confidence in their new songs and that their songs are perfect for the summer season.
The title songs of the EP, “LOVE ME LOVE ME” and “ISLAND”, are filled with fresh summery feel. This doesn’t mean that WINNER has put in less effort making the songs. They have been working on the songs even before releasing “REALLY REALLY”, but because they are perfect for summer, WINNER has been waiting for the right time to release the songs.
WINNER is ready to take the charts by storm with a catchy disco song and a romantic tropical song. “LOVE ME LOVE ME” is a disco song with a touch of WINNER’s sophisticated style. YOON, MINO, and HOONY wrote the lyrics and YOON, MINO, and YG producing team FUTURE BOUNCE wrote the music.
“LOVE ME LOVE ME” has a fresh exciting beat, and once you hear the “WANT YOU TO LOVE ME/LOVE ME LOVE ME MORE” part, you will be humming the song before you know it.
“ISLAND” is a romantic dance hall/tropical song that has lyrics about an island, a subject rarely used in songs. It’s perfect to listen to in a holiday resort. YOON, MINO, HOONY, and Bekuk BOOM wrote the lyrics and YOON, FUTURE BOUNCE, and Bekuk BOOM wrote the music.
WINNER sings “This is our island. There’s cool champagne under the coconut trees. I’ll be your island.”
“LOVE ME LOVE ME” and “ISLAND” show WINNER’s upgraded music style, but more than that, they show the youth of WINNER, who members are 24 years old on average. Their yearning for freedom is portrayed in the songs. Even in the music videos, WINNER members fly about freely. They show off their youthfulness in Hawaii.
WINNER has established their own style with “LOVE ME LOVE ME” and “ISLAND”. The group has proven its potential and popularity with “REALLY REALLY”. They have indeed blossomed new flowers on the hip hop soil of YG.
WINNER has created a whole new genre called “WINNER”. Their “LOVE ME LOVE ME” is still high up on the charts, and expectations are running high for “LOVE ME LOVE ME” and “ISLAND”. Be ready to see WINNER take the music scene by storm with their new songs.
