This is probably what most people expected when iKON debuted; a high energy, hip-pop track that could get people dancing and had a memorable hook/line.  The only thing is they probably didn’t expect it to be coming from a B.I. and Bobby subunit.

The other member pull backup dancer duty in this video and probably participate in the iKON is coming to town parts, but they are largely unheard here.  While Apology gave us a feel for the vocalist, this puts the two rappers center stage (of course, that is kind of the regular status of iKON).  It’s basically a brag track with a hot beat.  The lyrics are pretty good but, as always, wordplay doesn’t always work in the language it wasn’t written in, so there are few things lost in translation.

Note: *SIGH* I have seen people complaining about the fact the B&B have a subunit so soon.  This, of course, makes me have to remind them that a similar issue happened with the GD&TOP subunit of Big Bang.  The only difference is that their unit debuted BEFORE the entire group had a full album.  It was We Belong Together (the third single) and no other member of Big Bang appeared in the video.  Now, I have no problem with that; I just want to remind everyone that this is not unprecedented.

Lyrics:
iKON is coming to town
iKON is coming to town
iKON is coming to town
iKON is coming to town

Come here come here
Is there no one there
Ayo

This is iKON’s anthem
Korea’s centre, the combination of Bobby and I
are like Seo Taewoong and Kang Baekho
The tension of the youth, since we are pretty hot,
We are the hackers that unbutton people’s buttons.
Endorphins are surging so let’s just chill.
We still are childish no matter how you fly or crawl,
We will chew and eat you up.
Call me Ahjusshi.

Come here come here
Is there no one there
Ayo

No matter who it is, once you let your guard down, i’ll eat you up.
The things i protect,
I’ll protect them like Kang Kyunsung’s purity.
Everyone’s so curious my business but like Kwon Taegi’s wife,
It is none of your business.
Go all the way or do everything you are told not to do.
If you don’t know me, start knowing now.
The South Korea’s music world is mine without the original owner
If you want your foot in this or have the confidence
Come take away the leadership.

come here come here
is there no one there
ayo (korean drumming)

The combination of Bobby and B.I are like Yeonggu and Ddaengchil
Yongyi and Yeonggil, SeoSu-nim and Ha Cheongil.
The combination of Bobby and B.I are like Jang Gukyoung and Joo Yoonpal
Cabbage expert and Dance expert, Beer and Chicken.

iKON is coming to town
iKON is coming to town
iKON is coming to town
iKON is coming to town
