Lonely is the title single of B1A4's second Korean studio album, Who Am I.

The single was simultaneously released with the album on January 13, 2014 under WM Entertainment.

CompositionEdit

Jinyoung and composer Perfume composed the single while Jinyoung and Baro wrote the lyrics.

Regarding inspiration for the song:

It was a feeling (laugh). When I made that song, the weather was turning cold and my heart was cold too (laugh). I think I felt a little lonely. I made the song by infusing what I felt then, while thinking about past memories.

...

The truth behind the lyrics ‘I wanted to eat with you but you’re no longer around’ is that it was not rice, but pizza. I used to frequent a pizza place with a girlfriend last time. But the second day after we broke up I went to that pizza place with my friends and it felt so different. The person I’ve always eaten with is suddenly gone and I was so lonely. I had friends next to me but I felt lonely. It was really nice when I ate with my girlfriend… But I’m not saying that I don’t like my friends (laugh).


Regarding writing the raps for Lonely:

Once I heard the explanation of the song from Jinyoung hyung, I immediately knew what to do. I looked out of the window thinking about this and that, and it came out as I was scribbling. There was no pressure of having to write it quickly; I wrote it feeling the melancholy mood.


Billboard reviews the song's composition as "a complex arrangement of '80s-inspired synths mixed with ornamentations of Southern hip-hop, all sang in a melancholic, ballad-style delivery." [5]

PromotionEdit

Promotions began in January 2014 with the group performing on various music shows until February 2014 to prepare for their solo concert, The Class.

They won numerous awards with the single, breaking their previous record of one award which was won during their What's Happening? promotions. Notably they won the Triple Crown award on Show Champion on February 25, 2014. [6] B1A4 won a total of eight music show awards from their promotion of Lonely.[7]

After gaining three million views on the Lonely music video, WM Entertainment released the dance practice version of the song.[8][9]
