- “Love Scenario” (2018). They released this song early in the year of 2018, and the track has already become a favorite for people around the world, especially iKON fans. “Love Scenario” is a hit that follows a trend. The instrumental may not be immediately enthralling, but the song is still refreshing. The members’ performances flow tightly together, offering a patchwork of moments that feel compelling on their own, but even stronger as a whole. While iKON usually has a hip-hop style, they are also skilled in softer sounds that mix with their hip-hop trends. The harmonies are beautiful and the chorus is catchy.

This track, which they released in May of 2017, became another hit for iKON. The lyrics were written by B.I., Bobby, and rookie YG composer Millennium. Furthermore, it was composed by B.I and Millennium and arranged by Millennium. As always, their hip-hop style is very charming in this song.
3. “Climax” (2013)
“Climax” was written before iKON’s debut and is very emotional. It holds a lot of meaning for iKon and their fans, as it represents what they’ve fought for. It will forever mark the birth of iKON.
4. “Apology” (2015)
“Apology” was released after they debuted and has been topping the charts since. The music video is in black and white and shows each of the boys in their own love problems. The lyrics are sad, and the tone and amazing vocals show that it is intended to be a heartfelt song.
“Apology” has a deep meaning that talks about a break-up, and feeling sorry for mistreating one’s special person.
