In 2014 where all the fucked up shit happened they released their 1st studio album called “First Sensibility” along with the M/V for “1004 (Angel)”. Upon its release the album topped the Billboard World Album chart proving their international popularity. In Korea, First Sensibility topped both Hanteo and Gaon monthly charts for February giving them the chance to win on music shows for the first time!

“Where Are You?” M/V and the mini album Unplugged 2014” were released again as a present to the fans after their “B.A.P Live On Earth 2014 Continent Tour” that kicked off pretty nicely since it was the first time they went outside of Korea. After that the lawsuit came along and they didn’t renew their contracts.

And now they came back again at the end of 2015, after all these messed up situations, powerful as ever with their “Young, Wing & Free” M/V and their MATRIX” mini album. The album has 4 songs and a special Monologue from Himchan. Despite their hardships the album is pretty much light with funky songs still not loosing their sound! If i had to choose a favourite track, except from the title one that rocks big time, that would be “Take You There” because Daehyun’s vocals are giving me life once again! I’m so excited that they are back and i simply can’t wait to watch them on music shows and finally having schedules!
