Fans claim that the track "Worthless" has the exact same lyrics and sound as the demo B.I once shared on his Vlive broadcast and Soundcloud. #CreditHanbin is trending worldwide in support of the idol whose contract was terminated early this month.

A source from YG later confirmed that "Worthless" was indeed co-written by B.I alongside new artist Millennium but it was his choice to not be mentioned. “B.I’s name was not included on the tracklist due to his personal request, but he will be registered to the Korean Music Copyright Association as a writer of ‘Worthless'," they stated.
