iKON, "Dive"

South Korean boy band iKON returned Thursday (Feb. 6) with their new EP i DECIDE, fronted by the single “Dive.” The album is their first release since last year’s "I'm Okay" in January and is also their first music as a six-member act following a tumultuous 2019.

The song is a reflective party track laden with country-feeling instrumentals that recalls Pitbull and Kesha’s 2013 hit “Timber” as it ruminates on being willing to “Dive” into a relationship fraught with intensity and risks, all in the name of love.

Tying into the sngle's theme, the accompanying music video released for "Dive" shows the members of iKON performing the song as they face various dangerous situations, ranging from being target practice for arrows to performing choreography in the middle of flames.

“Dive” is notable for being co-written by former member B.I. (Kim Hanbin), who wrote many songs for iKON prior to his departure from the group last year amid allegations revolving around drug purchasing and usage. He also is credited as a songwriter on several other tracks on the five-song EP, while iKON's DK and Bobby also wrote on the album.

According to YG Entertainment, the theme of i DECIDE reflects “iKON’s will and passion to determine and focus on their own paths.”
