Announcement time! This will be the last monthly roundup ever! *cue sad music* Starting next month, we will be alternating the Hit or Skip feature each week. It just seemed a little counterproductive to be doing the roundups when songs were already being covered weekly. It’s the end of a great era, but hey! I may do more actual album “reviews” now. So hahah your favs will still not be spared. Mwah! xx
I had a traumatic Feb 23rd that ended my Black History month in ruins. #IfYouKnowYouKnow
ALL BY MYSELF
BIBI – Eat My Love
Initial: BiBi is the moment. I will not lie. Coming for Heize hag ass with her voice and bars. Give it up to this one. I love the way she says L O V E.
Now: L O V E.
Hyuna – Good Girl
Initial: Why does Hyuna shock me when I remember she can hold a note or two sometimes. Hahah. This is way better than I am Not Cool or whatever the other one was.
Kim Woo Seok – Sugar
Initial: So I actually heard this before watching the MV and I will not lie and say I wasn’t vibing. This shit is a bop. It’s on the K-Chill playlist on Spotfiy and whew.
Now: A bop! Listen to this while high.. You’re welcome.
Chungha – Bicycle
Initial: Very boy group in nature. High energy and performance. Full album review posted here: Querencia
Now: The performances have made me like this better.
Kang Daniel – Paranoia
Initial: Fuck. I was preparing to be shady but I like this. Ugh ughhhh ughhhhhhh. [insert a joke about how getting dumped has made his music better here]
Now: Yea this gets better every listen. Damn.
SUNMI – Tail
Initial: First of all, the music video is everything. Sunmi truly is a performer and we have to enjoy that to the fullest! Next is that this song is everything. It is giving me Miss A and I am stanning it.
Now: SUNMI-YA! ON REPEAT EVERY DAY.
Wonho – Lose
Initial: THIS IS SO GOOD. HOLY SHIT WHAT. OHMYGOD. AHHHH. ALSO HE LOOKS SO MUCH HOTTER TOO. Nah I am obsessed.
THREE’S A CROWD
CIX – Cinema
Initial: Please refer to CIX officially as EXO’s sons. No bad song ever?? Who else can relate?
Now: CIX covered LMR and I just wanna say that I am never wrong about anything.
Aespa – Forever
Initial: I don’t even remember their debut song so I won’t be remembering this one either. I suppose this is to prove they can hold a note? Good for them.
Now: Aespa down bad. Where’s RV?
Momoland x Chromance – Wrap Me In Plastic
Initial: Very pointless. At least the plastic surgery looks good.
Now: It kinda grew on me lmfao its so stupid.
GOT7 – Encore
Initial: Aw. Cute. Zzzzz.
SHINee – Don’t Call Me
Initial: Minho, if you’re reading this I am free on Thursday night. If you would like to hang out I am free on Thursday night when I am free to hang out. I am free to hang out on Thursday night so if you want to hang out on Thursday night I am free.
Now: Okay, but I really wanna suck Minho’s cock. Also I hate this song I have decided.
Wei – All Or Nothing
Initial: I met my noise quota for the month already. Sorry guys.
ONF – Beautiful Beautiful
Initial: Oh. Look how they ate that up. They gave the budget and said be blessed. We love to see it. The bridge 😍 The hook 😍 Nahhh but this goes hard? Excuse me? DJ run it back!
Golden Child – Breathe
Initial: Am I gonna have to start stanning Golden Child?? No I am too old for this shit. ffs. Stop with the good songs.
NEW KIDZ ON THE BLOCK
Kim Myungsoo – Memory
Myungsoo of Infinite formerly of Woolim Entertainment is finally doing his solo release right before shipping off to the Marine Corps. It is actually funny because I really do know of Myungsoo the actor than I do the artist. Anyways, yall remember how he plagiarized his departure speech .. allegedly.. LOL. Good times.
Initial: What is with the snoozefest when going into the military? Zzzz.
TRI.BE – DOOM DOOM TA
TRI.BE is a 7 member pre-debut girl group under TR Entertainment in Korea and Republic Records in the US and are co-produced by Shinsadong Horangi and Universal Music. The members are Songsun, Kelly, Jinha, Hyunbin, Jia, Soeun and Mire. So umm turns out I actually know Songsun and Hyubin because they were Banana Culture trainees. Interesting…
Initial: Sooo.. I was prepared to throw epic amounts of shade and be a mess, but umm… THIS SLAYS??? LISTEN… LISTEN… L I S T E N… This is a debut. It’s giving me ITZY fun and flare, but with actual vocals? Plus the instrumental is really fun?
Now: Blinks are made they stole Blackpink’s backdrop and song. Therefore, I shall be stanning cause I am petty and went through a traumatic event this week. It is fuck Blinks forever. mwah. Doom Doom Ta! Vida Loca!
Kingdom – Excalibur
KINGDOM is a Korean boy group under GF Entertainment. The group consists of Dann, Arthur, Mujin, Louis, Ivan, Jahan and Chiwoo. Unlike Tri.be, I do not know a single person in this group lmfao.
Initial: Okay budget!! Do I like the music video more than the song? Yes. However, the song itself isn’t bad. I can see it growing because it has a style I vibe with well. Plus ugh the organs.
Now: I literally forgot everything about the song as soon as I am finished listening. I still think the concept is cool though.
I.M – God Damn
Im Changkyun from Monsta X finally debut as a soloist with a whole mini album. He’s released other stuff before but this is like his official debut I suppose. This makes sense as we know that it is about time for people to start enlisting.
Initial: This is nice and chill vibes. I like it. I haven’t listened to the mini as yet, but I definitely will now. Teehee.
Now: This really is just such a vibe.
PIXY – Wings
PIXY is a 6-member girl group under ALLART Entertainment and Happy Tribe Entertainment. The group consists of 6 members: Ella, Lola, Satbyeol, Dia, Sua, and Dajeong. Oh shiiitt.. Ella is Mirae from Cherry Bullet!!!
Initial: I thought this would’ve been more of a dark kind of Dreamcatcher concept, but no thanks. I blame Teddy for making noise choruses with girl groups acceptable tbh. Also I do not recognize Mirae?? HAHAHAH.
