Big Bang (Korean: 빅뱅) is a South Korean boy band formed by YG Entertainment. Consisting of members G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri, the group officially debuted on August 19, 2006. Predominantly a hip hop group, their debut was a moderate success, with their first self-titled Korean album selling 48,000 copies. Their breakthrough came with the release of their first extended play, Always (2007), which included the number one song “Lies” (Korean: 거짓말). The song went on to top major Korean music charts for a record-breaking seven consecutive weeks, and won the group the Song of the Year award at the 9th Mnet Korean Music Festival.

Amidst their Japanese promotions, the members branched out to do solo activities: Taeyang and G-Dragon released solo albums, G-Dragon and T.O.P formed a sub-unit, Seungri and Daesung acted in musicals and hosted variety shows, and T.O.P went on to star in various films and television shows.

In 2015, after a three-year hiatus, Big Bang made their highly anticipated comeback to their native country with the release of four singles, “M,” “A,” “D,” and “E,” to precede their third Korean studio album Made. Their singles were met with critical and commercial success, netting in sales of over 15 million copies throughout Asia and winning the group their third Artist of the Year Award at the 17th Mnet Asian Music Awards.

Labeled as the “Kings of K-pop” and “Nation’s Boy Band,” the members’ involvement in composing and producing their own music, most notably G-Dragon, has earned the group respect and praise from the music industry. Citing their global popularity and contribution to K-pop, the Hollywood Reporter have described them as “the biggest boy band in the world.”

This song is a single recorded and was released digitally on in 2015, by YG Entertainment, as the fourth single from MADE Series, and the second from A. Here’s the translation to the lyrics:

My friends came out again today
MAN HOW YOU BEEN WHATS UP
AYE, wanna give me a drink here?
Whoever drinks last is it!
Just mix it up, champagne
AND IF U KNOW WHAT I’M SAYIN
I see your wrist, time is gold
It’s a hot Friday, you dig

Because we’re young, we’ll regret tomorrow
It’s a little dangerous (AYE MAN YOU BETTER SLOW IT DOWN)
For today that will never come again
Cheers to the sky

WE LIKE 2 PARTY YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
WE LIKE 2 PARTY till the sun rises above our heads
WE LIKE 2 PARTY YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
WE LIKE 2 PARTY till the sun rises in the West

Let’s play with fire for the first time in a while
Wanna get out of here right now?
It’s noisy in here, the atmosphere is fantastic
Fearless hotties getting drunk
Opus One’s scattered here and there
But make the end sweet, d’yquem
You don’t back out, you’re going with me to heaven
Being sober is against the rules

Without you, I’ll go crazy
DJ PLAY A LOVE SONG
I’m not drunk, I just miss you like crazy
SO DJ PLAY A LOVE SONG
