Aug 01,2018
Rapper Zico’s single “SoulMate,” featuring singer IU, which was released on Monday, held the No. 1 spot in eight major local music charts through Tuesday.

“SoulMate” is an R&B track that was written, composed and produced by Zico himself, and knocked singer Shaun’s track “Way Back Home,” which has been the top song on the charts for two weeks, to second place.

The rapper debuted as part of the boy group Block B in 2011, and since then, he has also been active as a producer, composer and a solo artist. He has released many hit songs such as “Boys and Girls,” “Okey Dokey,” “I Am You, You Are Me” and more.

Zico will hold his first solo concert titled “King of the Zungle Tour in Seoul” on Aug. 11 and 12 at SK Olympic Handball Gymnasium in Olympic Park, eastern Seoul. The rapper will also embark on a world tour beginning September.
