“Where Are You” will be the main track of their fourth single album, “B.A.P Unplugged 2014.” The mini album will come with three tracks, all of them with a gentler sound than their previous hits.

Leessang’s Gary and vocalist Jung In have rocketed to the top of the charts with their duet, “Your Scent.” The song was only released on May 27, but has already hit the Number 1 spot on the Genie, Naver Music, Daum Music, Mnet, Cyworld, Bugs, Soribada and Monkey3 charts.
The collaboration is a slower-paced number with extended piano harmonies. As expected from a song featuring one of Korean hip-hop’s brightest stars, it also contains many hip-hop elements. The music was written by Jung In and Duble Sidekick, with Gary taking care of the lyrics.
It has certainly caught the public imagination, and already looks like it could surpass the success of the duo’s previous collaborations, such as “Can’t Breakup Girl, Can’t Breakaway Boy,” a hit in 2009
