Today YGE finally revealed the name and credits for the surprise new track that iKON will use to extend their Return promo!
iKONICs will be happy to see that the members of the genius collaboration that gave us “Love Scenario”are also involved with the new track which is called “Rubber Band.”
According to YGE front man Yang Hyun Suk and iKON’s leader Kim Hanbin, the track is to be seen as a gift to fans and an opportunity to spend more time with our boys!
Are you looking forward to the surprise track?
iKON is still topping all major Korean charts 37 days after dropping Love Scenario and just recorded their 160th hourly Perfect All Kill! AND their 6th Music Show Win on KBS Music Bank (LoveScenario6thWin) (Its getting difficult to keep up with the achievements they come in literally as we type) Incredible!
UPDATE: 165th Perfect All Kill (we are gonna take a break from counting for now! Phew!)
You’ve heard it before- iKON’s latest title track, ‘Love Scenario’, is topping charts, breaking records, and has been called a megahit. Over a month later, the scenery doesn’t look much different.
On March 1st at 12PM KST, Gaon updated their weekly charts with rankings from February 18th to the 24th. Here’s where iKON currently stands:
— Digital chart: Love Scenario #1 | 55,581,306 points
— Download chart: Love Scenario #2
— Streaming chart: Love Scenario #1
— BGM chart: Love Scenario #6
— Mobile chart: Love Scenario #2
— Album chart: Return #4
— Karaoke chart: Love Scenario #3
You can check the charts per weeks on Gaon’s websiteLove Scenario still holding the #1 position on the digital chart marks the fouth consecutive week of this achievement, which is not a common thing at all.
The idol groups who have stayed at #1 for four weeks in a row can be counted in one hand: miss A’s “Bad Girl Good Girl”, Twice’s “TT”, EXO’s “Ko Ko Bop” and the newest addition, iKON’s “Love Scenario”.

As for the recently posted teaser for iKON’s new single, iKONICs are curious to know if the upcoming release will follow ‘Love Scenario’s steps in terms of being embraced by the general public.
In addition, iKON’s ‘Love Scenario’ broke a record by charting #1 on Melon for a total of 780 hours, surpassing the previous record by Ailee’s “I Will Go To You Like The First Snow” of 779 hours.
Let’s touch the sky, iKON!
iKONICs we hope you’re not suffering from achievement fatigue because Love Scenario has done it again!
Love Scenario has managed this feat by holding strong in the face of new releases. It has been one full month since the song’s release yet it’s still recording up to 700k unique listeners a day! With this kind of chart stamina it seems like the sky is the limit for iKON.
The Korean Media have labelled the song a “Mega Hit” and because of it have nick named iKON “Prince of the Charts” and the hilarious “iKONCRETE” (http://naver.me/xOGxGtZJ)
The iKONIC fandom call Love Scenario a Queen and we can see why.
Congratulations to iKON and iKONICs!
We got hints, even promises, but iKONICs are used to empty words. Today we got proven wrong in the best of ways.

However, iKONICs are used to waiting -without mentioning being busy keeping up with iKON’s current success and still playing their part as fans in the latest comeback for over a month now.
This announcement came as a shock and was completely unexpected, but iKONICS also have experience with seizing opportunities when they appear and this time won’t be any different.
