One of a Kind is the second solo release of South Korean singer-songwriter and rapper G-Dragon, leader of Big Bang. The mini-album was released on September 15 digitally and on September 18 physically.[1] On August 25, G-Dragon released the first music video of the song One of a Kind. However the song was not released as a single as the song and music video served as a way to introduce the album and concept to the public.[2] On September 1, G-Dragon released his first single "That XX". The song topped music charts immediately after release and eventually achieved "perfect all-kill" status.[3] The song Crayon will serve as the lead single of the album, which contains a total of seven songs all co-composed and written by G-Dragon himself.[1]

Upon release, the album was an immediate success in South Korea. All of the tracks occupied the top positions on all major music charts, earning G-Dragon another Perfect All-Kill.[4] The EP also places first on the Billboard World Album Chart and entered the Billboard 200 Chart at 161 for the week.[5] As of January 2014, the album has sold over 252,728 copies, making it the highest selling solo album in Korea since the release of Heartbreaker in 2009, also by G-Dragon.
