iKONIC’s Are Pissed Off That YG Entertainment Is Using B.I’s Demo Track Without Crediting Him
Sechs Kies‘ Eun Ji Won is releasing his first solo album under YG Entertainment, and the album features appearances by fellow YG Entertainment artists, including WINNER‘s Mino and Millenium in the title track “I’m On Fire.”
One track in particular garnered a lot of attention with iKONIC’s. Track number 4, “Worthless” shows the song credits as Eun Jiwon writing the lyrics and Millennium (Choi Raesung) doing the composing and arranging.
After listening to the preview of the song, iKONIC’s have pointed out how the song’s demo was actually also produced by B.I, yet he is nowhere to be seen on the credits.
Tell me.Which law indicate that the songwriter could not be credited in the poster. @ygent_official pic.twitter.com/ydqYFW1wJy

Parts from the demo could clearly be heard in the preview of “Worthless”.
iKONIC’s were very clearly unhappy about how YG Entertainment left B.I off the credits page.
Im torn into million pieces… My man doesn’t desrve this disrespect 😭

Now I’m glad Hanbin always let us hear demo regularly. Wtf this is so rude at least we have proof.

However other iKONIC’s were understanding with how YG Entertainment worked with the situation, considering B.I’s current state of affairs.
Due to the recent events, putting Hanbin’s name on the poster can affect the sales of the song, which then affects the artists who’s performing it. Please be understanding iKONICs. I know it’s hard to see this happen, but we must be mindful of the other people involve.

Let’s wait 1 month after, hanbin will be credited on Komca or not. Bcz if i m not wrong Hanbin isn’t credited for whistle in the poster. But he is credited on Komca. We only can see the credit on Komca 1 month after the song release
But still, that’s disappointing

all here who wishes the album to flop, stop that. the artist might be frends with hanbinnie or he happily gave the song to him. given this is being released now, the preparation mustve been way back which means no issue out yet. Hanbin should be credited in KOMCA tho, or WE SUING

Also we don’t know if this song was binded by a contract… so don’t go into conclusions.. we are not in any position to judge things based on what we think we know
