The first poster announcing "We Like 2 Party" was released on May 28, 2015, by YG Entertainment. A second poster was released a day later, revealing the production credits.

The "We Like 2 Party" music video was shot on Jeju Island on May 19, 2015. It features self-recorded footage from the members themselves, who were drunk during the filming in order to have a more natural feeling for the music video. Their label explained that the intentional was to show "the comfortable image of Big Bang rather than a more weighted-down Big Bang." The music video showed a carefree side of Big Bang, playing, partying and drinking alcohol, unlike their previous videos, which were known for their powerful image.Billboard noted that Big Bang showed a playful side of themselves and their strong friendship.
The music video was the third-most-viewed K-Pop video both in the United States and Worldwide on June 2015 according to Billboard. "We Like 2 Party" was also chosen as one of the best K-pop music videos of June by KpopStarz, with the website complimenting the "casual and inviting feeling the music video gives off from start to finish", describing it as "unscripted, ridiculous, and easily gets [u]s into the party mood."
