The hiphop duo of Young Men Gangsta’s Association (YMGA) composed of Masta Wu and DM released an album in 2008 that featured a lot of their label mates in YG Family in collaboration (most notably one with Uhm Jung Hwa.) The following Brave Brothers produced track (co-composed by Masta Wu) featured Taeyang.

The collaborations are a marked contrast in vocal and musical styles – and yet I think Taeyang did a great job with both. I think one of Taeyang’s greatest strengths as a singer is his ability to interpret and become immersed in the mood and storyline of a song (even those that may not seemingly be a “Taeyang” type of song.) It’s served him well as a soloist but also makes him a good match in these (and other) collaborations.
