"We Like 2 Party" is a song recorded by South Korean boy band Big Bang. It was released digitally on June 5, 2015, by YG Entertainment, as the second single from Made, being included in the single album A. It was written by Teddy, Kush and group members G-Dragon and T.O.P. The first three also produced the track with Seo Won Jin.

Background

The first poster announcing "We Like 2 Party" was released on May 28, 2015, by YG Entertainment.[1] A second poster was released a day later, revealing the production credits.[2] The song was banned from KBS due to the use of profanity and the mentioning of brand names in the track. In response YG Entertainment reportedly considered to edit the song, but to this date they have not.[3][4]

Commercial performance

In its first week, "We Like 2 Party" peaked at number three on the Gaon Digital Chart with 278,367 downloads sold.[5][6] At the end of June, "We Like 2 Party" was the second-best-selling single of the month in South Korea, only behind their own song "Bang Bang Bang". It sold 515,406 downloads and gained over 16.9 million streams.[7]

The song ranked at nine as the best Korean singles of 2015 in Taiwan.[8]

Music video

The "We Like 2 Party" music video was shot on Jeju Island on May 19, 2015.[9] 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."[10] 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.[11]Billboard noted that Big Bang showed a playful side of themselves and their strong friendship.[12]

The music video was the third-most-viewed K-Pop video both in the United States and Worldwide on June 2015 according to Billboard.[13] "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."[14]
