In November 2014, G-Dragon and Taeyang formed a duo to release the single "Good Boy", which debuted at number one on Billboard's World Digital Songs chart, the third time a Korean act topped the chart after PSY and 2NE1.
In December of the same year, G-Dragon collaborated with Skrillex and Diplo for the song "Dirty Vibe", which also features labelmate CL.

When you’re kind of being chased, and everything you do goes so well, you develop this sickness and a sense of need to constantly do something different."— G-Dragon by describing a man "full of angst and despair" that demands to be left alone as he spends the night "like a 'crooked-minded person,' because in the end, he's alone and doesn't need anyone's 'sugarcoated sympathy.'" His use of explicit languages in "That XX" drew controversy for the artist, and the song was deemed unsuitable for listeners below 19 years of age, and compromised words were replaced by beeps in the music video.
