Hits like “New thing (Prod. ZICO) (Feat. Homies)” and “Tell ME Yes Or No (Feat. PENOMECO, The Quiett)” created a “hip-hop syndrome” in the Korean music scene. “SoulMate (Feat. IU)” was loved for its delicate melody and acoustic sentiment, shooting straight to the top of the Melon weekly chart in its first week of release. “Summer Hate (Feat. Rain)” continued the trend of easy-listening hits, topping various domestic real-time music charts upon release.

In his new song “SPOT! (feat. JENNIE)”, Zico collaborates with another powerhouse in the music industry, Jennie. Expectations are high for this song, which captures the unadorned moments of two friends who met at a party late at night, to reveal a new side of both Zico and Jennie.

Meanwhile, celebrating his 10th solo debut anniversary this year, Zico is scheduled to kick off active activities in 2024 starting with “SPOT! (feat. JENNIE)”.
