top 10 kpop songs of the week: 1.10.21 to 1.16.21

check out BG’s 10 favorite kpop songs released this week

10. CRUMP X OWO – No, yes or no

The beat takes me back to 90s hiphop, and the lyrics examining the pull between the pressures to conform and the desire to break free flow so so smoothly against that Old School backdrop.

9. Hayeon – Walk Away

The sweet vocals and boppy beat of this new release from Taeyeon’s younger sister capture the shy nervous flutters you get from budding love. Plus, it gets bonus points for the lyric “I look up like a meerkat.” So cute.

8. E’LAST – Dangerous

This song poses the clear and present danger of making me embarrass myself by dancing in the car at stoplights.

7. Jang Hanbyul – Used to This

Meet my new favorite cheer-me-up song. By the time that slowed-down walking bass in the chorus kicks in, I’m smiling, no matter what.

6. Kangta – Cough Syrup

I’ve been dying to hear this silky-smooth R&B song by H.O.T.’s Kangta since he debuted it at the SM Town concert on New Year’s Eve, and the studio version is the perfect cure for what ails me.

5. DVWN – Free Flight

Poignant lyrics and music that brings to mind a smoky jazz club after hours scored this song a spot in my regular rotation this week.

4. Chan (Victon) – Eyes on You

Elements like low-fi echoes and the calming drip of water drew me into this solo track off Victon’s latest album immediately. It’s been on repeat quite a bit this week.

3. bobae – onoff

Soft and floaty, this song is an aural daydream.

2. Youha – Abittipsy

Vaporwave hooked up with a radio-ready 80s-esque melody to make this little piece of k-pop perfection.

1. (G)I-DLE – Dahlia

Perfectly showcasing the vocals and rap that makes these girls unlike any other, this track makes my Neverland heart sing.

That wraps it up. If you want to check out these songs for yourself, head over to my Spotify play list. And let me know what your favorite new kpop song of the week was in the comments.
