B1A4's Jinyoung is the idol with the highest royalty payments?

B1A4's Jinyoung admitted that it's likely he is the idol with the highest royalty payments for songs composed solely by one person. 

On September 27, B1A4 guested on 'Weekly Idol'. During the show, MC Jung Hyung Don and Defconn complimented Jinyoung, saying, "He's the idol that's #1 for royalty payments."

Jinyoung was modest as he explained, "It's not really like that but I probably am for self-composed songs entirely produced by one person."

Many idols tend to release self-composed music nowadays, however, it's uncommon for it to be entirely produced by one artist. It's reported that Jinyoung produced a total of 45 tracks in 2016, and 35 of them were entirely produced by him alone. Meanwhile, G-Dragon had a total of 16 self-composed tracks in 2016, and 6 of them were solely produced by him. Zico also had 85 self-composed tracks last year but only 2 were solely produced by him.

Netizens expressed amazement at Jinyoung's talent, and commented, "There are usually multiple artists that work together on self-composed tracks. I was surprised Jinyoung does it all by himself. I didn't really know but he's really talented", "There are hidden composers behind self-composed tracks. A lot of artists just change up the sampling, too. He's probably the only idol who truly produces self-composed tracks."
