The K-pop quintet blends '80s synths and Southern hip-hop style for the lead single off its sophomore album.
After their One Direction-meets-hip-hop single "What's Happening?" gave K-pop boy band B1A4 their highest-charting single on the K-Pop Hot 100 yet (No. 13), the boys have followed up with their second full-length Korean album "Who Am I." The release -- which marks an impressive feat for the band for having less than four years under its belt -- is led by an ambitious ballad single, "Lonely."
For the new song, the quintet presents a complex arrangement of '80s-inspired synths mixed with ornamentations of Southern hip-hop, all sang in a melancholic, ballad-style delivery.
