[Star of the Week] Big Bang′s G-Dragon and Awesome Collaborations with the Ladies
As shown through his second album and perhaps all of his solo endeavors, Big Bang’s G-Dragon is not shy about holding awesome collaborations with other artists.
With his fame steadily rising, and more and more artists from around the world suggesting collaborations with the Big Bang member, the anticipation is only growing for what G-Dragon will bring in the future and with whom.
As we wait for the next big collaboration, we go back to some of the outstanding performances he’s held with in recent time, coincidentally, the majority of them female.
Akdong Musician’s Lee Soo Hyun
For the first time since her debut into the public spotlight, Akdong Musician’s Lee Soo Hyun took the stage without her brother.
But in his place was the most Crooked brother she could ever have.
Lee Soo Hyun joined G-Dragon on the stage of his World Tour One of a Kind: The Final, where the two sang Missing You together.
After making beautiful harmony together, G-Dragon said that Lee Soo Hyun was just adorable and thanked her for making her way over to perform with him.
Now the official performance is still under wraps, but G-Dragon will be releasing his concert DVD soon, so look out for that!
If Lee Soo Hyun ended the G-Dragon concert, it was Lee Hi who kicked it off at the beginning.
Together with G-Dragon, Lee Hi sang Without You at G-Dragon’s concert in March, just as she began promoting her new song, Rose.
It was a pretty large stage for a rising rookie, but Lee Hi owned the stage and made it her own, impressing all the G-Dragon fans in the audience.
Once again, patience is a virtue. The concert DVD will come out on September 13! You can watch the performance then.
Perhaps the most famous of YG trainees, Jennie Kim isn’t an unfamiliar figure as she’s appeared in G-Dragon’s That XX music video and even featured in Seungri’s new album.
Giving her stage experience, G-Dragon invited her to his Inkigayo comeback stage, where they sang Black together.
For someone who has never officially performed for television before, Jennie Kim took the stage like a pro. There’s definitely more anticipation for her debut now.
Although G-Dragon doesn’t seem like it, we’re pretty sure he was so nervous when he stood on the same stage as Missy Elliot at Mnet’s KCON 2013.
The two performed G-Dragon’s new track, Niliria dropping some moves and rhymes while fans screamed in complete amazement at the awesome collabo.
G-Dragon later mentioned at press conference that it was such a huge honor to work with Missy Elliot.
We bet it was. It’s also the best present ever for a fanboy.
And of course, G-Dragon can’t have collaborations without including his YG sister, 2NE1’s CL.
The leaders of the crew got together once again at G-Dragon’s concerts in 2013 to perform – what else? - The Leaders.
No matter how many times we see a performance of this song, we never get sick of it.
