After getting perfect all-kills with her two pre-release tracks, IU's "Palette" collaboration with Big Bang's G-Dragon has also achieved a perfect all-kill!

A perfect all-kill happens when a song is #1 on all major real-time and daily charts, as well as instiz's realtime iChart and Weekly iChart. With a new week, all of that happened and IU has achieved another perfect all-kill!

Congratulations IU! Eight of her tracks are still in the top 10 of the instiz chart. It's hard enough for most artists to get one perfect all-kill in their entire career but IU has done it for three tracks in under one month.

Am I the only one who's not really digging the song? The song is alright, I guess. Just meh for me. Perhaps it's because I'm not a fan of IU and I'm really not a fan of falsetto singing. I guess that's why the song is not appealing to me at the moment.

Those two are legends and I somehow feel like it is entitled to get a Perfect All Kill, if you know what I mean. ;)

As expected. IU set a new record for herself: 3 PAKS with 1 album. No one else has done that.

That's what we call a real digital powerhouse, she is definitely getting Female Soloist awards at year end.

vincentrob11 gchoneybllushhh Monday, April 24, 2017

She better. Anyone who denys her that must be a Taeyeon stan.

kacichan vincentrob11 Monday, April 24, 2017

They are going to divide the awards between them. IU is a digital queen, Taeyeon is super strong in physicall and digital as well.

gchoneybllushhh kacichan Monday, April 24, 2017

yep it could change alittle depending on the scoring criteria. Digital is definitely IU.

I saw an analysis of Palette on a blog by lyrasilvertongue. It was the most top voted in the comment section, and it was so brilliantly written and explained so well that I have decided to share it to those who don't quite understand why the song is so successful, and why it makes IU fans happy for her newfound confidence. Palette is refreshing because it is so personal to not only the singer, but also to the youth growing up. Be prepared it's long! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Also, while I may usually prefer faster paced songs and MV's as title tracks, as a continuing thematic, I truly appreciated the manic energy, confusion, and hyper-anxiety of Twenty Three crystallizing into something so much more settled, calm, and mellow in Palette. Twenty Three was about how other people view IU and how laughable it was for them to try to endlessly construct and deconstruct her, when even she didn't even know who she was or wanted to be from moment to moment. In Palette, the gaze of others hasn't changed, in that everyone still hates her or loves her, but it doesn't make her anxious anymore. It's like a scientific fact, something that exists but is neither here nor there. She would like to be liked, and there is a hint of defiance when she's talking about things that people probably won't like, but it's more measured and it doesn't consume her. Twenty Three was the public looking at IU, while Palette is IU looking at IU, contemplating her own changing tastes, and likes and dislikes, taking stock of how far she's come, instead of filtering herself through the gaze of the woman turning the corner, and wondering if she still likes her when she's out of sight. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GD's part fit so well within it, because he's older, but he doesn't have the answers. And yet, somehow, he's solid and reassuring. Comforting. Telling her she's beautiful and loved, that he's been through it, and he's okay too. Twenty Three was IU wanting to be a child one second and an adult the next. Palette is GD telling her that they're neither and both, they're not different people second to second, they're just themselves. There's so much relativity, sincerity, and affection in the song, IU looking at her eighteen and twenty three year old selves, and GD looking at both himself in the past and at the twenty five year old IU. It really brought home that it doesn't matter whether you're twenty three, five, or thirty, perhaps nobody ever stops feeling like they're not quite there yet, wherever there is. Which, eventually, is fine, has to be fine. Twenty Three was about obsessively trying to decide, while making fun of the external limitation imposed in having to choose, but Palette is more conversational than confrontational; it tells you she used to like hot pink, but lately she's started liking purple, she used to love her long hair, but she quite fancies her short hair now, and yet she still loves Corinne Bailey Rae, just as she did before. It seems to suggest that you're constantly changing. There's nothing about you that is going to be static long enough to pin down, and maybe that's the best part. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- While TwentyThree was so much fun  precisely because of all the shade, as an ode to growing up, Palette is actually so on-point. She's out of the rabbit hole, and she's truly fine.

Yo, check out the analysis I just posted above!

NoonaVip korona_d Sunday, April 23, 2017

Yes! Thank you I just did. What's a bit ironic is that before reading the analysis, I think the mood of the song pretty much explained it exactly how it was analyzed. That's the power of sincerity combined with true artistry. It's even more lovable because we all know she didn't add GD for some type of buzz or random feature for chart purposes. She didn't need it. He's on that track because she know he is the living testimony to what she's trying to express. Listening to her story was already convincing but by adding him on pretty much certified it. I got so much more love for her now.

korona_d NoonaVip Sunday, April 23, 2017

Yes! Couldn't have said it better. Honestly, when I found out GD would be participating in the track I didn't know what to expect other than "oh it's probably going to be another upbeat song with a random featuring...IT'S GOING TO BE LIT, etc., etc.," but I was totally blown away by the depth and message of this song. There was so much reality to her song, and they expressed it so well without it being too complex or boring. I don't think people really understand the magnitude of this song unless you know of all the hardships these two amazing individuals have faced. I agree, I appreciate her way more than I did before! Lucky to be her fan!

NoonaVip korona_d Sunday, April 23, 2017

Definitely a work of art. Also very inspiring as well. Simple things like being content with yourself and who you've be come is along the lines of things money can't buy. Instead, express the beauty of hardships and life experiences into art like they did and it could actually help comfort any troubled human out there. It unexpectedly hit home for me and I only expected it to just be a good song with no huge meaning. I'm a fan of IU but I'm a huge fan of Jiyong. This release is so satisfying for both fandoms. It's a really nice gift from them. I'm really supporting every bit of it. I have nothing against female artist who just waits around for a song to be thrown at them but an artist at IU's level is just so satisfying since she's involved in everything she does. Like GD. These two conquered k pop!

korona_d NoonaVip Sunday, April 23, 2017

I am entering my early twenties, and I'm at that point in my life where I'm really questioning if what I'm doing with my life is right aka totally lost. I think in simple terms this song is about self love and spreading the message to go at life at your own pace because being able to be comfortable in your own skin is tougher than it sounds. Identity is important to people, and I believe the best shit ever in life is finding peace and freedom within yourself. I remember in a fanmeeting or forum or something during Chatshire promotions a fan told IU she was lost in life, and IU responded, Is that so bad? You're really lucky, that's the best part in life! So the song also held a lot of weight for me as well for an insecure, lost bambi like me. It's great seeing their progress and growth as artists and individuals, and I couldn't be more proud of IU and GD. Seeing that just puts a fire in my spirit, and I'm like if they can do it so can I kinda attitude! It's quite inspiring really. I mean here we are having a conversation about how great the collab is haha. I'm supporting IU's promotion like hella, I literally retweet, comment, and like everything I can like I'm apart of IU's PR team. Forreal hire me already

NoonaVip korona_d Sunday, April 23, 2017

And last but not least, so satisfying when your ultimate fave is slaying and snatching the crown like none other. Congrats to all IU fans especially you!

korona_d NoonaVip Monday, April 24, 2017

Thanks for the engaging discussion!
