“Still Life” is the boy group’s first single in four years. The song landed on top of the charts of local music streaming platforms after its release on Tuesday, as well as on iTunes charts in 33 countries and territories.
Big Bang made its debut in 2006 as a five-member group, but became a four-member act in 2019 after Seungri departed from the group due to his involvement in a sex and gambling scandal.
