K/DA have made a comeback, but there’s one pic difference. Madison Beer isn’t in the band anymore – and fans aren’t happy.
The virtual League of Legends band K/DA are a hit amongst K-pop fans, who were hugely sad when they disappeared after their hit song ‘POP/STARS’ became hugely popular back in 2018.
Two years later, the band is finally back, but a few changes have been made. Madison Beer, who voiced Evelynn, and Jaira Burns, who voiced Kai’Sa are gone!
Everyone’s waiting for Riot Games to reveal the reason why they’re gone. Did they leave? Did they kicked out of the band? Who knows. But fans aren’t happy about it!
K/DA are back
Everyone’s favourite virtual band is making a comeback, and we couldn’t be more excited.
K/DA, the K-pop girl group inspired by four characters from the League of Legends game are back with a brand new song called ‘The Baddest’. This is the first track they’ve released since ‘POP/STARS’ back in 2018.
The band, which is developed by the creators of League of Legends, Riot Games, will be releasing an EP later in the year.
However, there’s something a bit different about the band, and the four characters Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kai’Sa, are no longer voiced by the same people.
Madison Beer isn’t in the band anymore
The main difference is that Madison Beer is no longer in the band. Madison is a popular singer from New York whose career began aged 13 after Justin Bieber tweeted a link to a cover she had uploaded onto YouTube.
The 21-year-old has since collaborated with some pretty big artists, from David Guetta to Jax Jones and even Martin Solveig. She also voiced Evelynn in K/DA, but not anymore.
The exact reason remains unknown, but Madison seems to have deleted all of her K/DA content and no longer has any association with the band. Evelynn will now be voiced by Bea Miller, an American artist and former X-Factor contestant.
Madison Beer has blown up over the past year, becoming a huge social media star alongside her singing career. Therefore, it seems likely Madison left the band to work on her own career and would like to leave her K/DA era in the past.
Fans aren’t happy
Many fans aren’t happy with the voice change, claiming that Madison Beer was the best part of the band.
One person said: “Madison beer just fit Evelynn so well as did the other person Kai’Sa. The 2 new random people don’t have the attitude of Eve and Kai’Sa like the previous 2 did. Now it just sounds like some generic kpop song.”
Others demand Riot Games confirm exactly why Madison, and also Jaira Burns, are no longer in the band.
One Twitter user said: “Curious as to why @madisonbeer and @JairaBurns aren’t apart of @KDA_MUSIC anymore though…. The new girls are great, but they literally replaced half of the of vocal lineup. I hope @riotgames would vaguely explain so that the weird rumors I see about it are put to rest.”
