The Winning is off to an ‘all-kill’ start with Love Wins All
IU takes her own sweet time in between albums. Also, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter showed no interest in being on ‘trend,’ but the long wait between her albums has been proven to be well worth it.
After Lilac was released in 2021, IU’s new album The Winning will come out on February 20 at 6 p.m. KST/ 4 a.m. EST, however, the celebration for the album has started early. The genius hitmaker dropped the pre-release track “Love Wins All” with BTS V which earned her an ‘all-kill’ certificate.
For the unversed, an ‘all-kill’ term usually means a track that charts on top of all Korean music platforms showing its immense fame.
Notably, BTS V and IU’s “Love Wins All” topped the Melon, Genie, Bugs, and FLO charts at the same time, achieving its ‘all-kill’ status.
