Big Bang’s Taeyang is also a Honorary Ambassador for the Olympics and Paralympics, and released his latest single “Louder” for the event, which he sings and composes. It is produced by TEDDY, R. Tee, Joe Rhee. The song is about shouting louder for your national team, and the chorus has a particularly fighting spirit with the uplifting guitar riff.
The event is set to finish on 25th February 2018, and the closing ceremony is rumoured to see both CL and EXO perform. Will you be watching?
