Earlier this year, Epik High released ‘Epik High Is Here 上, Part 1’, the first half of their 10th studio album. The project featured collaborations with South Korean R&B and hip-hop acts, including CL and Zico on the hit song ‘Rosario’, Heize on ‘Based On The True Story’ and B.I on ‘Acceptance Speech’.
Notably, ‘Rosario’ was included on NME‘s list of the 15 best K-pop songs of 2021 so far. In her write-up, NME‘s Mariel Abanes called it a track that “emit[s] so much power”, and noted that “from the very beginning, [its] sultry instrumentals and intoxicating opening draw listeners in”.
Last June, the hip-hop trio released ‘Rain Song’, their highly anticipated collaboration with K-R&B singer Colde. As of writing, it is unclear whether ‘Rain Song’ will be featured on the tracklist of ‘Epik High Is Here 下, Part Two’.
