K/DA is voiced by real-life K-pop idols Soyeon and Miyeon of the group (G)I-DLE, as well as singers Madison Beer and Jaira Burns. They made their debut in 2018 with ‘POP/STARS’ which has since garnered over 300 million streams on YouTube, and 146 million plays on Spotify. K/DA consists of League champions Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, and Kai’Sa.
Check out the music video for K/DA’s ‘POP/STARS’ below.
The tweet also calls the upcoming song a “pre-release single”, hinting that a full project from the group is possibly in the works. It would come as no surprise given K/DA’s success, as ‘POP/STARS’ reached number five on Apple Music’s pop chart and number one on the K-Pop chart upon release.
K/DA isn’t League Of Legends’ only musical act, as hip-hop group True Damage debuted in 2019 to promote the League Of Legends World Championships. True Damage also includes Soeyon, alongside Becky G, Keke Palmer, Soyeon, DUCKWRTH and Thutmose.
