League of Legends’ (LoL) virtual pop girl group, K/DA, finally released their long-awaited EP, All Out, which features performances from members of renowned K-pop groups TWICE and (G)-IDLE.
All Out contains five tracks — ‘The Baddest’, ‘More’, ‘Villain’, ‘Drum Go Dum’, and ‘I’ll Show You’ — and was written by American singer-songwriter Bekuh BOOM and produced by Riot Games composer Sebastien Najand.
Each track in the EP was made to showcase the creative direction and personality of each individual member of K/DA — LoL champions Ahri, Evelynn, Akali, and Kai'Sa. All Out can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, and more.
K/DA first teased their comeback and the release of All Out in August when they dropped the EP’s pre-release single, ‘The Baddest’, which featured Korean pop group (G)-IDLE members Miyeon and Soyeon, as well as Bea Miller and Wolftyla.
The track topped Billboard's World Digital Sales Charts during the week of 12 September, has over 38 million streams on Spotify, and over 29 million views on its music video on YouTube.
A week before All Out’s release, K/DA dropped the EP’s feature track, ‘More’, which once again featured Miyeon and Soyeon alongside Jaira Burns, Lexie Lu, and Seraphine, K/DA’s guest star for the EP and LoL’s latest champion.
The track debuted to critical acclaim, hitting No. 1 on iTunes' K-Pop chart, No. 2 on iTunes' Pop chart, No. 4 on iTunes' Worldwide Song Chart, and No. 7 on the iTunes' US Chart, while its music video garnered over 27 million views on YouTube.
As for the rest of the tracks on the EP, ‘Villain’ features Madison Beer and Kim Petras, ‘Drum Go Dum’ features Aluna, Wolftyla, and Bekuh BOOM, while the much-anticipated final track, ‘I’ll Show You,’ features Jihyo, Nayeon, Sana, and Chaeyoung of the K-pop supergroup TWICE, alongside Bekuh BOOM and Annika Wells.
All Out’s release will also be accompanied by the release of special skins for its members and events across LoL and its spinoff games, Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics.
