(G)I-DLE is making a comeback with the release of their fourth mini-album, I Burn, on January 11th.

Their fourth album features six tracks that were written, composed, and arranged by members Soyeon, Yugi, and Minnie. All the tracks depicted the repercussion and final acceptance of a painful breakup. The lead single, “HWAA,” is a moombahton track which compares a breakup to a bitter winter that leaves someone’s heart covered in white snow. Instead of dwelling on the pain of the past, the group sets fire to their memories so that they can bloom again or fall in love in spring time.


Soyeon revealed that winter, fire, and flower are the album’s key concepts, during the group’s press conference,  which help complete its unique storyline of pain, beauty, and personal growth. “Rather than delivering a message, we wanted to share the sentiments of separation,” Soyeon explained. “Winter represents how someone’s emotions become frozen cold because of a breakup, while ‘Fire’ is the will to melt a frozen heart. ‘Flower’ is the new love that comes once we have fully confronted of a breakup.”
