Are you searching for some new K-pop music to hear to, or are are you thinking about constructing a playlist of songs launched lately? Listed below are six new K-pop songs we’ve had on repeat over the previous couple of weeks, that includes each particular person artists and teams. When you’re finished with these, don’t neglect Ive’s After Like is approaching August 22, and we’ve acquired every part you need to find out about it right here.
Smartphone — Yena
If there was an award for “maddest music video” this month, it will go to Yena for Smartphone, which appears to be like prefer it takes place inside a bag of Skittles, after the Skittles had been spiked with LSD. Yena actually is aware of how to seize hearts along with her cute expressions, and is true at house performing each the loopy “story” (for need of a greater phrase) components and the high-energy dance routines within the video. One hear received’t be sufficient for this pop-driven, punky ode to the smartphone.
Harm — NewJeans
K-pop’s extra visually thrilling, hardcore dance songs typically get a lot of the consideration, significantly internationally, so to discover this slower, vocal-driven music on NewJeans’ debut album is welcome — and it’s the rationale I’ve included it right here. Sure, that is NewJeans’ debut, however you wouldn’t actually realize it after listening to this polished, refined music, or any of the opposite tracks from the surprisingly understated EP, which takes the group’s identify.
Increase your Glass — Huh Yunjin (Le Sserafim)
In the identical approach Harm differs from many generally heard K-pop songs, not all K-pop songs are sung in Korean both. This solo, self-produced launch from Yunjin, one of many five-member group Le Sserafim, is in English (full with a number of alternative expletives). Very similar to our subsequent observe, Domino, the music’s lyrics have explicit which means to Yunjin and her followers, who know she has been working towards turning into an idol for a while. However even those that aren’t conscious of Yunjin’s background will get pleasure from this extremely uncommon, mature, and thought-provoking music.
Domino — Itzy
Taken from Itzy’s current Checkmate album, this music is particularly written for followers of the group — also called Midzy — however I included it right here as a result of it’s an awesome demonstration of Itzy’s vary, in addition to having a non-choreographed music video that’s good for followers of the group.
Since their debut in 2019, Itzy is healthier identified for his or her highly effective EDM, and whereas you can nonetheless hear a component of that in Domino, it combines it with an uplifting refrain and some actually candy lyrics. It’s glorious. If you need Itzy being extra, effectively, Itzy, then our suggestion is to hear to Racer on the identical album, ideally by means of Apple Music, the place it sounds very good in Dolby Atmos and Lossless.
Time Out — Stray Children
Summer time idol songs are one thing to look ahead to annually, and Time Out is an instance of precisely how they need to be produced. Tons of power, a very catchy refrain, and most significantly, a music video with all of the members having fun with themselves on the seashore, plus outtakes on the finish. If you’re new to Stray Children, it’s an awesome introduction to the varied vocal kinds and singing voices that make up this eight-member boy band. It’s shockingly good enjoyable.
Perhaps — Jo Yuri
It’s only a teaser to the entire music above, and to see the whole music video, you’ll have to obtain and use the Universe fandom app, then go to Yuri’s web page, the place the video is out there to watch totally free. This mild, traditional pop music fits the previous Iz*One singer’s voice, and the melody’s springtime vibes are carried throughout within the cute video. As soon as you’ve listened, go and attempt Love Shhh! to hear Yuri sing a way more upbeat music.
