I haven't posted in a while and part of that was I did not have enough on my list to warrant a post however after remembering Cjenn Music is a youtube channel that has lots of kpop i found a bunch of music that I can add to the list so here goes:
1 of 1 - SHINee : May as well start with the biggest group on the list. Shinee are back and have a new LP album out with this feature single. The song and the music video both have inspirations from the 90's and I really dig it. Not my favourite Shinee song but I do like it.
Wings Comeback Trailer: Boy Meets Evil - BTS : Ok, it is not quite an actual full song, and more a trailer announcing BTS are coming back with a new album, but its quite long, features some great dancing which BTS are known for and BTS are my favourite boy band so it goes on the list. Musically I like the song too and hope that it is on the album and cannot wait for more BTS.
Time Travel - Beenzino : I said before that I wanted to get more into Beenzino and this is a pretty good song from him recently. I do like his style and the music video is also pretty good as well.
Sugar Rush - Gemma : This is a new name to me and it is not a bad song although very simple until the chorus kicks in. I do like the chorus . Also this is the Chinese version and there are Korean versions out there.
Home - Ailee featuring YoonMirae : I won't lie, I listened to this song because I saw YoonMirae featured on this song. What I was greeted with is a great R&B styled song with some good vocals. That and Yoonmirae always does great work, arguably one of the best lady rappers in the kpop game right now.
Dab Dab - Moon Byul and Hwa Sa of Mamamoo : One of my favourite girl groups this year seems to have recorded some special live music videos for songs that they haven't put out as singles and dab dab is one of them. I chose this one particularly as it has a fun style to it musically and features the two rappers from the group who can also sing quite well.
New York - Mamamoo : This completely slipped my radar and I got so excited when I realised this was a thing earlier today. I like Mamamoo a lot and seems like they have a fun song similar musically to what they released earlier this year (although I don't think it beats 1cm from them). Their music video is also fun and cute .
Years - Alesso and CHEN (STATION) : To end this another station track but another interesting one featuring a swedish trance house master Alesso. Station tracks continue to be very interesting to me and seems like they largely cater to a more dance music genre which I wonder if they are trying to break into Korean nightclubs or not. Either way this is a really fun trancey song to listen to.
That is it from me and I think it is safe to call it that the summer of Kpop is over so hopefully if I have time in my next post I will try and create a rundown of my top 5-10 or so summer songs and proclaim (my) number 1 summer banger.
