As expected, WINNER’s new track “AH YEAH” dominated digital music charts in Korea.
At 8 pm (KST) May 15, the title song “AH YEAH” in Winner’s new mini-album named “WE” occupied No.1 position on the real-time chart of Melon – Korea’s largest digital music site. The song also swept No.1 on other music charts such as Bugs, Genie, Olleh Music, and Soribada.
Winner’s new song “AH YEAH” was released 5 months after “MILLIONS”. This is Winner’s summer dance song which attracts listeners with the addictive chorus, the rhythmic guitar riff, and the lyrics coolly expressing feelings of a cold separation.
Kang Seungyoon shared the story about the process of composing this song, “I want to reverse the emphasis on the feelings of missing someone and the pain which are usually seen in many breakup songs. I think that although a breakup is difficult and hurtful, the absolute end of everything like the song ‘AH YEAH’ can also be the happy ending for both.”
Kang Seungyoon participated in the composition, at the same time, he also wrote lyrics for the song together with Song Mino and Lee Seunghoon, thereby doubling Winner’s artistic aspect.
Earlier, with the track “REALLY REALLY”, Winner became the “King of digital music” when they were the first boy group to achieve 100 million streaming. Following “REALLY REALLY”, “MILLIONS”, etc., the song “AH YEAH” took the top spot on digital music charts, once again proving the value of Winner’s popularity.
On the other hand, this album has a total of 6 songs, including 4 new songs namely the title song “AH YEAH”, “ZOO”, “MOLA”, “BOOM” and 2 special bonus songs consisting of “EVERYDAY” (remix version) and “First Love”, which received a lot of requests for dropping its official digital version after being performed by Winner on “Two Yoo Project: Sugar Man” of general TV channel JTBC.
