The League of Legends pop group have now returned with a brand new track titled the “THE BADDEST” and have also announced an EP, which is expected to drop later in the year.

However, this new track also featured appearances from two new artists, Bea Miller and Wolftyla, adding new elements to the track alongside SOYEON and MIYEON from (G)I-DLE.

The group initially featured Madison Beer, Jaira Burns, SOYEON and MIYEON but seem to be making changes going forward, opening up the possibilities for multiple artists to collaborate on K/DA to “embrace a more global pop sound.”

“Artists featured in THE BADDEST and the rest of the songs on the upcoming EP will be collaborators,” Riot shared, “allowing K/DA to welcome a much larger roster of amazingly talented musicians to join them in their comeback.”

Toa Dunn, Head of Riot Games Music revealed that there was a massive demand for a new K/DA track following the group’s debut and that the EP later in the year would be packed with “tons of surprises for League of Legends and K/DA fans.”

With the hype building around K/DA’s project later in the year, fans have also been speculating that a future League of Legends champion called “Seraphine” might also join the group after more hints were shared on social media.

“Super happy to join Misfits,” Deficio said, “Over the past 2 years, I’ve gained a lot of invaluable knowledge on things that work and don’t work within a team, which I will utilize here. Excited for this new chapter!”

“We’re excited to bring Martin’s knowledge and unique experiences as a manager, player, and broadcaster to our European team in Berlin,” said Ben Spoont, CEO and co-founder of Misfits Gaming Group. “Developing our infrastructure through impactful leaders is a key part of our strategic growth plan, and we’re excited to see what Martin has in store for 2021.”
