Block B releases new single 'Yesterday'

All Headlines 15:42 February 09, 2017

SEOUL, Feb. 9 (Yonhap) -- Idol group Block B has released its new single "Yesterday" after a 10-month hiatus following EP "Blooming Period.”

The group has established itself in the K-pop scene by fusing pop and hip-hop. Imagine NSYNC mixed with Wu-Tang Clan and you get Block B.

Dubbed "Gossipnam," a word made up of the first syllables from the phrase "desirable man" in Korean, Zico became Block B's first member to achieve solo fame outside of the group. With his signature lover boy bravado and streetwise swagger -- as opposed to the generic sweet boyfriend facade of other boy groups -- and with pure musical prowess and artistry, Zico has become a heartthrob to young K-pop fans over the last few years.

Solo project "Notebook" by fellow member Park Kyung also hit the airwaves last month. Having mass appeal and musical prowess under his belt, Park Kyung has enjoyed basking in his new-found limelight.

Now Block B has regrouped for "Yesterday," with Park taking on a key role. Written by Park, the song, in terms of rhythm, takes a cue from shuffle music. Lyrics co-written by Zico and Park are about a man becoming insecure about his jaw-dropping girlfriend, who is innocent on the outside but, in fact, a femme fatale by nature.

Park adds a comical touch to the dance song while Zico fares well, as always, delivering catchy high-caliber rhymes.

Block B's new single "Yesterday" was released Monday.
