Back That Ass Up – 2020 Year In Music

There is no December roundup because like who really releases any good songs in December anyways? Jk Jk. But for real, I was too busy doing this to even really pay attention to the december releases and 9/10 times they are all ballads anyways. That being said here are my favorite December releases that are not listed in my year end picks.

Okay so now that that is over, we shall do a forewarning to address the differences between this years year end picks to last year’s. First and foremost, FUCK 2020! With that out of the way, there will be no picks from China this year because it’s their punishment for you know what. Lmfao. I’m kidding, please don’t take me seriously. It was a joke. Y’all know I love me some China and Chinese entertainment. Unfortunately, I didn’t listen to many new Chinese artists releases this year and in the case of OSTs they are so hard to find on Spotify so I end up forgetting the songs which makes it hard to pick my favorites. To prove that I don’t just hate China, I also have no Japanese songs that are not from KPOP artists because truthfully, I spent a majority of 2020 listening to KPOP (shocking but true) and my depression albums. To make up for the lack of Chinese and Japanese content, I decided to give ten title tracks and ten bsides (girls only). I feel like I am allowed to be a little bit of a mess this year because it was a messy year!

Overall as much as it pains me to say… We had a pretty good year in Korean music. IDK if it was them not being allowed to tour or what but I enjoyed a lot of what came out this year especially when I compare ot to last year and the difficulty I had choosing songs because everything sucked. This year my problem was that I had too many options and I had to stick to my only one song from a group per category rule. Smh. Anyways, enjoy! xx

PS- It is kinda funny going back to my roundups and seeing how different I feel about things as time went on.

  1. Love, love, love all the picks! Although men definitely do not deserve any rights lmao, they really did have some good releases this year. I’m especially glad to see Zoom Up on here as it was my favourite PTG b-side of the year as well as Baekhyun’s releases. Taste!

    Happy New Year and hopefully we get good music in 2021!
