BIGBANG’s G-Dragon Shares Excitement For His Upcoming Music, What He Believes Makes An Icon, And More
BIGBANG’s G-Dragon has decorated the cover of Elle magazine’s latest issue!
In his new photo shoot, G-Dragon shines in pieces from Chanel’s unique 2022/23 collection that is inspired by Dakar, the capital of Senegal.
During his accompanying interview, G-Dragon was asked about his upcoming solo album, which he hinted at back in April. He responded, “As it’s been a long time since I’ve promoted as singer G-Dragon, I’m working [on the album] with a fun and excited heart. I think I’ll also be able to know what kind of emotions I have now once the songs are complete. I’m looking forward to it myself.”
Touching on his musical style of writing honest lyrics and capturing his sincere emotions, G-Dragon elaborated, “I try to communicate through music. When I look back on the emotions I’ve let out in songs over the years, there’s nothing that doesn’t come from my own experiences. Music is the best way to understand myself.”
When people reflect on G-Dragon’s career, there’s often the opinion that he was ahead of his time. The artist was asked what he thinks of this, to which he replied, “You’ll likely hear words like this when time goes by and there’s someone to be compared to, and if that’s the case, then I think that’s great to hear. When I look back on people I think are iconic, they’re remembered just as the people they are, regardless of the generation or trends. I’m also working to become someone like that.”
