Back on June 27th after hearing track #4 of YG Entertainment’s Eun Ji Won’s latest album, iKONICS discovered that the song “Worthless” sounded very much like a song they had heard before for both the melody and the lyrics. Indeed, it had been a song B.I had played for them back in December 2017 during a Vlive. iKONICS then trended #CreditHanbin and YGE released a statement that they would do so as the album credits omitted his name.
Fast forward almost 3 months later and the album is finally on KOMCA (Korean Music Copyright Association). As it was long overdue, many had found it suspicious. Those suspicions proved to be warranted as B.I actually had a second song credited to him as lyricist and composer, track #3 on Eun Ji Won’s album called “Sexy” which YGE failed to mention when they were called out for “Worthless”
