In the 2021 Best Song of the Year 50 released by the prestigious U.S. music magazine Rolling Stone on December 6 (local time), Epik High Is Here title track "ROSARIO (Feat. CL, Zico)" from Epik High's 10th full album was named.
Rolling Stone evaluated Epic High's "ROSARIO" as having its own unique genre. He also praised, "It faithfully captures the musical depth without excessive production and hooks common in K-POP."
In addition, he added that the lyrics stacked on top of the rhythmical trap beat and flamenco-style guitar sound were impressive. In particular, he lavished praise, saying, "The message delivered as if the three artists were exchanging contains the direction in which K-POP should move forward."
Citing a rebellious yet challenging chorus, he drew attention by delivering an intense message to new artists to pay attention to Epic High's music.
Epic High's "ROSARIO," which was named the Rolling Stone's "2021 Best Song of the Year 50," is a song about cool advice to those who wish for others' misfortunes and failures, and the strong message of "I am a living legend and will keep this position" stands out.
In addition to Epic High's "ROSARIO," top domestic and foreign artists such as Adele, Bruno Mars, Billy Eilish, and BTS were also listed on Rolling Stone's "2021 Best Song of the Year."
Meanwhile, Epic High will hold its solo concert "Epik High Is Here" at the Olympic Hall in Olympic Park in Seoul from the 17th to the 19th and meet fans at the concert hall for the first time in two years.
