    Released: May 28, 2008

With U is the second Japanese mini-album by Big Bang, released on May 28, 2008.[1][2]

Background[edit]

After experiencing breakthrough success in their home country with the song "Lies"[3] and "Last Farewell",[4] Big Bang expanded their endeavors to Japan, hoping to produce similar results. In 2009, American music publishing company Sony/ATV Music Publishing accused YG Entertainment of plagiarism, and listed four songs recorded by several of YG's artists as having been plagiarized.[5] Big Bang's single "With U" was included as part of the accusation and deemed to have copied from R&B singer Joe's 2004 single "Ride wit U",[6] with Sony stating they would take legal action.[5] YG Entertainment denied all accusations.[7][8]
