On January 13, he made his comeback with his self-written single “Any Song,” which instantly achieved a perfect all-kill status on South Korean music charts.

The hip-hop song became more popular through the “Any Song” Dance Challenge, which went viral due to participation of popular Korean artists.

Due to its witty lyrics and trendy atmosphere, the track also topped Gaon Digital Chart and Billboard K-Pop 100 Chart.

Meanwhile, Zico just released his third EP Random Box on July 1, along with its title track “Summer Hate.”

The catchy track has been gaining lots of love and attention from fans due to its groovy and harmonious beat.
