I wrote in May that I’ve discovered Kpop. Fast forward half a year and I’m still very much into it. But now instead of focusing on one group my focus has shifted… everywhere. I now have so many favourites it’s hard to keep track of them all. But I figured it would be nice to have some lists here and there to see where I have ended up at. So here are 7 songs I’ve been loving lately (there have certainly been more but I’ll stick to 7).
🎵 B.I – FLAME
Most recent favourite of mine is B.I’s 1st mini-album Cosmos. It’s a combination of hip hop meets feel good songs that fit well into my playlist. The mini-album has many good songs, the title song Cosmos is super cute but Flame is my personal favourite. I just love the hip hop vibes.
🎵 TOMORROW x TOGETHER – LO$ER=LO♡ER
Despite the fact that most of the members in this group are born in the 00’s (makes me feel incredibly old), they brought out a song that took me to my teenage years. LO$ER=LO♡ER has that nostalgic emo-rock vibe that just got me. I was immediately dragged into their world and now like most of their songs. Sorry not sorry.
🎵 KEY – HELIUM
I won’t get too into it but Key’s first mini-album Bad Love is incredibly special. It’s filled with amazing songs and honestly I’d be completely thrilled to list them all here. But I’ll stick to Helium which is a track completely in English. By the way, the header image is from Key’s album. The entire concept of Bad Love was brilliant!
🎵 N.FLYING – MOONSHOT
While the previous songs have been by artists and groups I’m fully aware of I know nothing about N.Flying. I just heard Moonshot and fell in love. It’s an upbeat soft-rock track that has a rap verse and gets me excited. Maybe one day I’ll dive more into N.Flying but for now I’ll just adore the hell out of Moonshot.
🎵 I.M – GOD DAMN
I’m naturally drawn towards rappers so the fact that I really started to like Monsta X’s I.M is no surprise to me. His God Damn has such a great mellow vibe too. It’s the perfect chill Friday night staying in vibe with a hint of danger. I can’t explain it. Anyway, this is a good one!
🎵 ONLYONEOF – SAVANNA
OnlyOneOf is an underrated group who recently had a member leave. So this is a bittersweet mention. I absolutely love their entire vibe but having discovered them right before they went from 7 to 6 hurts. Anyway their discography is great, libidO especially stands out but I’m currently more attached to savanna.
🎵 DPR IAN – SO BEAUTIFUL
Ending this list of seven was so hard because there were so many songs left to mention. But I’m gonna go with somebody who used to be part of a Kpop group but now has a solo career as DPR Ian. His songs are in English and his entire discography is so swoon worthy. It is haunting and strange and his music videos are stunning! Definitely a must for anyone, you don’t even have to be into Kpop.2
