America’s Billboard spotlighted GD X TAEYANG’s new single “GOOD BOY.”

On Nov 20, Billboard had its headline, “The BIGBANG members prove they’re at the top of the vocal, rap and dance game in one of the year’s most epic club tracks.”

It added, “GD and TAEYANG are K-pop’s only male soloists with Billboard 200 chart entries and now the superstars come together for a new single. Written and arranged by G-Dragon, “Good Boy” showcases the BIGBANG members’ singing, rapping and dance skills in a big, booming package.”

“”Good Boy” feels like DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” brought to the next level with the irresistible breakdown along with the added singing and rapping; a closer comparison might be calling it a 2.0 version of CL’s”MTBD.””

“GD and TAEYANG (aka GD X TAEYANG) are at the top of their vocal game as both straddle the line between singing and rapping throughout the track: G-Dragon jumps from hard-hitting verses to purring through the bridge while TAEYANG’s pre-chorus runs get quicker and quicker throughout each verse. Lyrically, the guys keep their mystique up by proclaiming their “good boy” status while boasting about their good looks, fresh clothes and love-making skills.”

“Save for his collaboration on TAEYANG’s latest solo album “Stay With Me,” G-Dragon hasn’t released any K-pop music this year. As one of the first K-pop acts to rank on Billboard’s year-end World Albums chart — along with TAEYANG’s Rise setting a new chart record for Korean solo singers — could “Good Boy” be making a late play to be one of the scene’s biggest hits this year? Given the guys’ chart record, it looks probable.”

Unveiled at 0 hour of Nov 21, “GOOD BOY” is still sweeping across 7 major music charts like Olleh, Mnet and Soribada until now. Their popularity is simply borderless as the track topped 7 iTunes around the world in Malaysia, Macau, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and more. In America, the track climbed up to #85.

The famous Colin Tilley directed the M/V of “GOOD BOY,” and on Nov 22 at 9am, it already hit 2.8 million views and is quickly about to reach 3 million.
