G-Dragon is setting another trend as he released his solo comeback "Kwon Ji Yong" which is completely dominating local and international charts. The BIGBANG leader is doing away with CDs for the physical copies and will be releasing the album in a one of a kind USB format.

According to a report by Soompi, G-Dragon's "Kwon JI Yong" will be available in a special USB that is designed to contain the BIGBANG leader's details. The title of his solo comeback album "Kwon Ji Yong" is also G-Dragon's real name.

The USB also bears his birthdate which is August 18, 1988, his blood type "A" in his handwriting. Fans are already excited to get their hands on the physical copy of the album whose songs are already dominating the charts. A lot of his supporters also lauded the choice to switch to USB since a lot of devices no longer accommodate CDs. USBs are also considered more useful.

G-Dragon, upon releasing the album last night was able to achieve an all-kill on all six real-time charts last night barely an hour after the album's release. All of his five songs have also dominated the charts. The Top 3 spots of the MelOn chart was dominated by G-Dragon's songs while all of G-Dragon's songs from his latest album occupied the Top 5 spots in Genie.

G-Dragon is also breaking records set by fellow Korean artists PSY and BTS on iTunes. G-Dragon's "Kwon Ji Yong" quickly skyrocketed to #1 in the iTunes charts of 39 countries including the US, Argentina, Brazil, Spain, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Colombia, Estonia, Finland, among others. It was also observed that G-Dragon topped the charts in almost all of the countries where he is scheduled to take his 19-city "Act III: MOTTE" World Tour, All Kpop reported.

The BIGBANG leader released last night the MV for his title track "Untitled, 2014" which came as a surprise because YG has earlier promoted "Bullsh*t" as the title track. The switch to the melancholic single may be because of BIGBANG T.O.P's recent hospitalization.
