Well over a month since the release of Mad Clown’s “Fire,” the track is making news again by topping the Gaon monthly chart for January.
“Fire,” the title track under Mad Clown’s third mini-album Piece of Mine, had been the hot single of January with its all-kill on 10 music charts and its first place win on both SBS Inkigayo on January 25th and Mnet M! Countdown on the 29th.
The album and track was the rapper’s fiery entrance into the mainstream hip hop scene, and the introduction of Mad Clown’s hard-hitting, high-tone rapping style. With the help of Mad Soul Child’s Jinsil and EXID’s Hani, the track and music video depicted a classic good-guy-meets-bad-girl story, and the emotions and frustrations from the man’s point of view.
Mad Clown has this track to thank for his recent success, now that he is making frequent appearances in television programs and collaborations with other mainstream artists, including his recent featuring in Rubber Soul’s debut single, Life.
