top 10 kpop songs of the week: 4.11.21 to 4.17.21

check out our 10 favorite songs released by kbands, kpop groups and solos last week

#10 – CHEEZE – Loser

In contrast to its name, this quirky new single from CHEEZE was a winner with us from the very first listen, especially once the floaty chorus kicked in.

#9 – Minhye J – Knock Knock

A driving beat and Minhye J’s velvety vocals make Knock Knock a song we couldn’t help but open up to and let into our regular playlist rotation.

#8 – Wheein – Butterfly ft. GSoul

Wheein of MAMAMOO‘s collaboration with GSoul is a love song that expresses real emotion conveyed by their combined vocal talents.

#7 – Kyuhyun – Coffee

Kyuhyun of Super Junior‘s latest solo release is our new go-to for weekend coffee and chill. You can’t help but relax when you hear that sweet melody delivered by his soothing voice.

#6 – SHINee – Atlantis

Atlantis comes on bold and big with Taemin‘s belting and a repetitive guitar riff and builds to a dramatic chorus that is classic SHINee. It’s a great repackage counterpoint to the more experimental Don’t Call Me that served as the single on the original album.

#7 – Moon Sujin – The Moon ft. Moon Taeil

Not only do Moon Taeil of NCT and Moon Sujin‘s names match the song, but their voices perfectly compliment one another, creating a gorgeous audio masterpiece.

#4 – DONGKIZ – Universe

In a week full of soft tracks, DONGKIZ stood out with its bright mood, bop-worthy beat and playful vocals. As the lyrics say, this song gives the boys time to shine.

#3 – DVWN – Yeonnam-Dong ft. lIlBOI

DVWN brings jazzy vocals and lIlBOI adds a funky-cool verse to this repeat-worthy single off the solo vocalist’s new album.

#2 – Kang Daniel – Digital

Digital somehow manages to have an 80s new wave aesthetic and a completely contemporary dark-pop sound at the same time, and the music is the perfect vehicle for showing off Kang Daniel’s impressive vocals. Dive deeper into his lyrics and you find out this song has a lot to say about the disastrous emotional consequences of putting on a brave face and hiding your struggles from the world. It’s the perfect follow-up to Paranoia and continues Daniel’s courageous commitment to being open about his mental health.

#1 – Wheein – water color

Wheein effortlessly displays her vocal power in this oh-so dance-able single from her first mini album. Knowing that she’s as much a painter and visual artist as she is a singer gives the metaphors found through the song more meaning and shows this is a personal track as much as it is a fun, uplifting listen.
