"High High" is a song recorded by South Korean duo GD & TOP. It was released on December 15, 2010, by YG Entertainment, as the first single from their self-titled debut album GD & TOP (2010). It was written by the duo with Teddy, and produced by the latter.


"High High" is a pop-rap[2] and electropop song[1] with references to old-school hip hop.[3] E. Alex Jung from Vulture described the song as a "synth club banger".[4] The track samples the 1985 song 'La Di Da Di" by Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick.[5] The lyrics include sexual metaphors.[6]


"High High" received acclaim from music critics. Spin named the single the seventh greatest K-Pop song of all time, commenting that the track "grows gruffer and faster as it buttaflies [sic] higher and higher" and concluding "this is how LMFAO and Far East Movement want to sound."[3]Billboard chose "High High" as one of T.O.P's most memorable songs, with Tamar Herman writing that the "G-H-E-T-T-O E-L-E-C-T-R-O" chant on the track's bridge "remains one of the most catchy and baffling moments of Bigbang's career."[1] Additionally, the single's music video was named by Stereogum the fourth best K-Pop music video of all time, with Tom Breihan writing that the track "does poppy American club-rap better than any American has done it in many years" and that GD & TOP "appear to be having more fun than anyone else on the global pop-music landscape" in the music video.[2] Korean magazine Ize complimented that the song's uses the "club culture" boldly, and the result is "refined and digested".[6]
