Winner to drop a song on Dec. 19

Dec 14,2018
Boy band Winner will release their new single next week - the quartet’s first record in eight months - their management agency YG Entertainment said Thursday.

YG did not disclose the title of the upcoming single, set for release Dec. 19, but a teaser image showed the four members huddling together and holding lit matches.

YG portrayed the release as Winner’s end-of-the-year “present” to fans ahead of the band’s release of a full-length album in the first half of 2019.

The single will be Winner’s first release since their second full-length album, “Everyd4y,” dropped in April. Their next full-length album will be released after the band wraps up their world concert tour in February, according to YG.

Meanwhile, rapper Mino from the band claimed No. 1 on three categories of Gaon music charts - digital, streaming and download charts - with his album “Mino First Solo Album: XX,” according to the music chart on Thursday.
