Along with the release of the single on August 27, 2020, the group also announced that their debut album is on the way.

Listen to “The Baddest” by K/DA
The song acts as an empowering track towards the fast-paced gameplay of League of Legends by Riot Games. The girls encourage everyone to be the “baddest” which in slang is to be the best!
The chorus by Bea Miller further encourages everyone to be the best version of themselves in whatever they do. These girls in specific pride themselves on ‘breaking the rules and breaking hearts into twos.’
“The Baddest” also features lyrics in Korean just like it’s predecessor “POP/STARS.” These vocals are done by Soyeon. Her lyrics also speak about being the best in the business when it comes to fashion, style, killer instincts, and turning heads.
The second verse by Wolftyla brags about stealing victories over all others. She sarcastically apologizes for being the best in the game. She is here to stay and slay everyone on her way to the wins.
The song is meant to provide a morale boost for the listeners, especially in-game. And it delivers on this goal. Let us hear what you think about this track in the comments below.
