Sorry for the lateness but this week was one of the hardest because everyone decided to release good music.
fromis_9 “We Go”
I was shocked I liked this as much because I don’t fucks with fromis_9 but these little girls delivered a nice summer bop. Taemin “Advice”
Of course Taemin had to give us a bop before his enlistment. This is now a new genre, haunting hip-hop. TRI.BE “RUB-A-DUB”
I wasn’t a fan of their debut as much but even though this is in the same wheelhouse, this hits better. This makes for a great summer song to get you dancing. ENHYPEN “FEVER”
Even though this is a second single from their latest release, it needed its time to shine because it’s soooo good! Their concepts are a little avantgarde but this chorus gets me! PIXY “Let Me Know”
This sounds like a CLC song and I should be mad at it but I ain’t. It slaps. Rocket Punch “Ring Ring”
I’m a sucker for retro beats and this is like watching an episode of stranger things. I vibe. BLING BLING ” Oh Mama”
This is a good solid debut. I am loving their dancehall vibe and really excited to see what else they bring. BTS “Butter”
This was SO close to being a skip but it grew on me like a fungus. I like it way better than Dynamite, but I am still wishing for a simpler time like Love Yourself Era. TO1 “Son of Beast”
This was also close to being a skip but the chorus saved it. I love the word play and the subtle new jack swing sound. I’m liking the reinventing themselves now. Heize “Happen”
I didn’t know if I would like this because I like her as a feature more sometimes. But this song definitely grows and the MV is really cute.
aespa “Next Level”
If only they would have split this song into two different ones, I would have at least liked the second one. YUQI “Bonnie & Clyde”
I love her tone but I just wish the song was better. It’s annoyingly boring. E’LAST U “The Beginning of Spring”
I didn’t even realize this was a sub-unit until mad late. It’s not terrible but I’ve heard better things from the group as a whole, this just felt a little flat.
