BIGBANG‘s first comeback in four years was confirmed on Monday! According to an official statement, the K-Pop group will release a new song between March and June this year. Furthermore, it was also revealed that member TOP has terminated his contract with the South Korean agency.
After numerous controversies involving the group’s name, because former member Seungri was convicted of a case involving prostitution, BIGBANG graced fans with the new project. The song’s name has yet to be revealed, but Dragon, TOP, Taeyang and Daesung are already preparing to record the MV.

TOP’s departure, by the way, does not influence the group’s comeback. He, who debuted with BIGBANG in 2006, maintained an exclusive contract with the agency for 16 years. The rapper will now follow new challenges as an artist and entrepreneur.
