So this post was late but like a) it was my birthday month and b) Halloween aka the day this should’ve been posted was on a Saturday, I have a life folks #SorryNotSorry
So now the question is.. which songs soiled my birthday month and which songs were actually not that bad? Mmmm…
Black Lives ALWAYS Matter
All By Myself
Ailee – When We Were In Love
Initial: Nice to see Ailee back to using her voice for good. This is such a beautiful song.
Now: I was mesmerized listening to this again. So damn beautiful.
DAWN – DAWNDIDIDAWN (Feat. Jessi)
Initial: Wanna be Gdragon ass.. This is the worst thing I have ever heard and seen. Everyone involved in this production needs to write me an handwritten apology.
Now: Doesn’t sound as horrible as I remember?? Mmm…. wtf.. Kinda slapping guys.. help??!!!
Loco – Can’t Sleep (feat Heize)
Initial: Everything is boring except for Heize’s.
Now: Funny that they can’t sleep because its literally putting me to sleep.
CHEN – Hello
Initial: Mmm I could totally talk about all the innuendos here, but I won’t. Kiii.
Now: Have fun in the military!
Punch – I Miss You
Initial: I don’t care… Punch can do wrong for me. I love her voice so much cause its so soothing and it makes me think of happiness.
Now: My angel. This song has been such a vibe.
Crush – Let Me Go (feat Taeyeon)
Initial: Crush may be ugly but he got a fresh ass fade in this one.
Now: Has he enlisted yet?
Alexa – Revolution
Initial: As expected when it comes to an Alexa release. She falls perfectly between Chungha and Miso imo.
Now: I refuse to listen to this again.
Moon – Walk The Night (feat Zion T)
Initial: Good vibes and coffee shop music. You love to chill and enjoy it.
Now: Issa look. Issa mood. Issa vibe.
Yezi – Mimew
Initial: SHE HAS MY WHOLE HEART. Yezi is like so hot? WTF. No cap. Also I love this? Her duality is everything.
Now: LEGIT STUCK IN MY HEAD. SO FUCKING GOOD. SHE DID IT AGAIN FOLKS.
CL – +H₩A
Initial: Reminds me of an early 2010s song but I can’t recall which. Not bad. Catchy enough.
Now: I still can’t remember the song that it reminds me of sighs.
CL – +5Star
Initial: Pretty sure I prefer CL the vocalist to the rapper. I like this one better?
Now: Meh. Actually like Hwa better now lol
Mino – Run away
Initial: You know what? I would definitely fuck Mino.
Three’s A Crowd
Blackpink – Lovesick Girls
Initial: A bop. A banger. Full review here: JENNIE KIM IS A PRODUCER/ SONGWRITER.
Now: THE REPLAY VALUE OF THIS BANGER????? ITS SO GOOD????? JENNIE YOUR MIND????
SF9 – Shine Together
Initial: Aww how cute. Its songs like these that make the kpoppies think they’re entitled to be these boy’s everything lmfao
Golden Child – Pump It Up
Initial: There’s a sample here that I can’t quite place as yet, but ugh this is it yall. I love boy group songs like this! The video is as vibrant and fun as the song. Added to the playlist!
Now: I WANT YOU BACK – JACKSON 5
WEKI MEKI – COOL
Initial: The production here is EVERYTHING!!! oh my god. This sounds so good, I love all the changes and the tones. We’re stanning. I be the choreo slaps too.
Now: Choreo did not slap like I thought it would, but song has grown on me so much so small wins.
PENTAGON – Daisy
Initial: In a shocking turn of events, I enjoy this broody boy group song lmfao. Its giving BTOB “I’ll be your man” tease and I am eating it up. Ooops.
Now: Yeah…. I love it yall? I’ve been giving it plays. Leave me alone.
NCT 2020 – Make A Wish
Initial: Lucas is so fine.
Now: So this isn’t all 900 members? Honestly I really dont give a fuck either way.
VERIVERY – G.B.T.B
Initial: I got excited at the beginning because I thought we were getting a kind of ‘Scream’ vibe, but no. Sighs. I mean it’s fine, the chorus is very weak.
Now: I hate this more now.
Weeekly – Zig Zag
Initial: Post chorus is my favorite part by far. I think Tag Me was way better.
Now: Justice for Tag Me’s follow-up song cause this aint it.
SEVENTEEN – Home; Run
Initial: SEVENTEEN may always be plagiarizing their beats, but listen.. I can’t make the stolen songs not bop. Sorry not sorry. It’s a bop almost always.
Now: Might have to stan SEVENTEEN and that is terrifying.
LOONA – Why Not
Initial: I had no expectations for this cause I had decided full group Loona just doesn’t slap as hard, but wow.. I like this? A lot? A whole lot actually. Like what??! YALL HELP.
Now: It earwormed it’s way into my heart lmfao…
B1A4 – Like A Movie
Initial: I thought without Jinyoung that it was disbandment, but I guess not. This is so cute and such a nice sound. Aww it brings me back tbh.
Now: Gah this is so nice.
Mamamoo – Dingga
Initial: When will they go back to making good music? Also the title one step away from calling me the n word. Not with the shits.
Now: Bring back good music you dumb bitches. We hate this shit.
D.Crunch – Across The Universe
Initial: Generic post-2019 boy group music. EDM noise. Not too bad. Not too good.
Cravity – Ohh Ahh
Initial: Apparently a bside from their album, I didn’t remember the actual title track so I went back for a listen and yup this is better.
Now: Nice enough to enjoy tbh
TXT – Blue Hour
Initial: Believe it or not, Can’t You See Me is probs one of my favorite boy group tracks this year. I always randomly start singing it. Damn did they dip into BTS’ autotune studio? The instrumental is nice, but their voices sound terribly irritating to me.
Now: #GIVEBTSBACKTHEAUTOTUNER FREE YOURSELF BOYS
TWICE – I Can’t Stop Me
Initial: IDK about the MV, but I love the songgggg. Omg a redemption from More & More!! Bringing us the 80s and we love it!!!
Now: This song is quickly becoming a top TWICE song.. Might have to kick Signal out of my #1
CIX – Jungle
Initial: CIX NEVER MISSES. THIS IS SO GOOD. JUST MY TASTE. MY STYLE. EVERYTHING. I LOVE IT.
Now: It’s been on repeat yanno. CIX y’all are THOSE boys.
New Kidz On The Block
Wei – Twilight
South Korean boy group under OUI Entertainment. The lineup consists of six members: Daehyeon, Donghan, Yongha, Yohan, Seokhwa, and Junseo. Another group made up of former Produce and 1theK members so I’m sure they have a decent following.
Initial: A nice safe, decent and forgettable debut.
Now: Already forgot it.
WJSN CHOCOME – HMPH!
A sub-unit of the group WJSN/Cosmic Girls with members Luda, Soobin, Dayoung and Yeoreum. I am not quite certain how they decided on who should be in it, but Dayoung is a part of bias line so I am not complaining.. Hehehe
Initial: They saw the orange caramel sized hole left in the KPOP universe and said “hold my beer”. I love it! So refreshing in the year 2020. I hope they stick to it.
Now: I find the MV so cute and the song so nostalgic of my older KPOP daysl.
Refund Sisters – Don’t Touch Me
A project girl group formed by “How Do You Play?” variety show with members Lee Chun Ok (Lee Hyori), Jessi, Kelly (Uhm Jung Hwa), and Hwasa. Think Unnies, but with the “It Girls” or whatever. So stupid.
Initial: Can Hwasa please color in her eyebrows? Her forehead is so damn big. Anyways the song is nice enough.
Now: Actually ages kinda well but you didn’t hear that from me.
Lee Sunhyun – Alien
Sunhyun is from the duo AKMU with her brother under YG Entertainment. It’s actually funny that he debuted her now and not when the brother was in the army, but he must know that with contract expirations coming up, she would be on the first trip out of the hellhole that is YGE. Hopefully, Jennie will follow suit.
Initial: Here’s the thing.. Suhyun’s voice is so good that literally anything would sound amazing. Case and point this basic shit. The MV is so damn good though!!! I LOVE IT.
Now: Such an earworm!! I literally just randomly find myself singing it all the time.
BlackSwan – Tonight
So…. basically Raina the re-up. A 5-member girl group under DR Music consisting of members Hyeme, Youngheun, Leia, Fatou, and Judy. Basically I am rooting for the black girl yet again.
Initial: Well…. It’s a song…??? Fatou is hot.
Now: Fatou is so hot?!!?!?!?!?!?
P1HARMONY – Siren
FNC is back with another boy group. The members are Keeho, Theo, Jiung, Intak, Soul, and Jongseob. I wanna say that one of these members had a controversy on Twitter cause they were like an ex-stan, but I really do not give a fuck so….
Initial: Eh. Nothing new. Same old shit, different boy group.
DRIPPIN – Nostalgia
Hailing from Woolim Entertainment with members Hyeop, Yunseong, Changuk, Dongyun, Minseo, Junho, and Alex. I guess they were former Produce members?? Idk.
Initial: Hehe funk instrumentals. They got me. I like this a lot. It’s so good. FINALLY A GOOD DEBUT SONG.
Now: SO. DAMN. GOOD. I LITERALLY. AM. OBSESSED. WHY THEY ATE? WOOLIM YOU KNOW HOW TO DO BOY GROUPS.
