WINNER’s Mino & Taehyun’s Duet ‘Pricked’ Slays Music Charts

By  | 

WINNER has kicked off its long-awaited comeback in 2016 with project EXIT Movement. The group’s entry single Pricked, a duet by members Mino and Taehyun, soared straight up to the top of multiple charts upon its release on January 11!

Aside from topping 5 domestic charts (Mnet, Bugs, Olleh, Naver Music and Soribada), Pricked also snagged the top spot of the iTunes chart in 6 countries, including Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and Brunei.

Pricked features melancholic undertones that perfectly suits Mino’s distinct rap style and Taehyun’s lush vocals. Penned by Mino, the lyrics express the sorrow after a breakup.

WINNER first unveiled the track publicly at the group’s live comeback countdown show ENTRY NIGHT via V-app. During the stream, the boys disclosed that their mini album EXIT: E will be released on February 1st, with the title track Baby Baby. They also revealed their plans for a solo concert, and expressed their interest in participating in variety shows.

    Winner is the first group that I have fallen for and stanned ever since their debut and also the first group I’ve listened the entire album of and even voted for by going through endless pages of Korean to English translations. I’m so proud of them.Each one of them has such a distinct voice and personality and they’re all so adorable. These guys continue to generate such happy feelings in me! I guess this is a group I shall love forever! Loads and loads of love and support from India.
