"Oh Yeah" is the second single from hip hop duo GD & TOP's 2010 self-entitled album. Released through YG Entertainment, the song was released alongside "High High in December 2010. The song was a commercial success, peaking at the No. 2 position on the Gaon Music Chart,[1] becoming the duo's highest peak on the chart, and selling over a million copies.[2]

Background[edit]

In an attempt to create their own style separate from their band, Big Bang, the duo opted for a more hip-hop sound as GD & TOP to contrast the group's current genre of electronic music.[3] Release simultaneously as "High High," "Oh Yeah" have been described as a "club song" due to its "beat drop"; Bom's vocal was also praised.[4] The duo have explained that "Oh Yeah" lyrically explores the theme of freedom.[5] A Japanese version was released the following year.[5]
