BIGBANG member G-DRAGON chose "UNTITLED", a slow-tempo piano ballad song longing for lost love, as the title track of his first solo album in four years, the singer's agency said Thursday. The sudden change followed a marijuana scandal involving G-DRAGON's teammate TOP.

The 28-year-old previously announced his new track "BULLSHIT" as the title track of an upcoming album "Kwon Ji Yong", but it was changed at the last minute, only four hours before the album's scheduled release at 6:00 pm (0900GMT).

TOP, who was serving his time as a conscripted policeman, was charged Monday with smoking marijuana in October last year. He was hospitalized after overdosing sedatives at the living quarter of conscripted policemen Tuesday.

Experts speculate TOP's case may have reminded fans of G-DRAGON's 2011 marijuana scandal. They suggested that G-DRAGON and YG saw BULLSHIT, a hip-hop track with strong beats, as unfit for the current situation as it would be good to stay inconspicuous for his successful comeback.
