iKON just released 2 songs and I’ll be writing about “Airplane” for this post.
After first listen, the song’s melody reminded me of Big Bang’s “Loser,” in that they both have mid-tempo lulling tunes except “Airplane” is a bit more upbeat sounding. This song didn’t strike me upon first listen as much as “Loser,” but I think it’s pleasant and more impressive than “My Type.” I like the lyrics of the song too, which are about a couple that are going to part ways & the singer is begging for the airplane to stop, so she won’t leave. This is the kind of song I think would be good at the end of a concert for the song’s meaning and melody.
The music video is quite literal as it features BI, Bobby and female lead hanging out & female lead gets on a plane, while BI chases after her. However, she still leaves on the plane.
Check out the music video below!
