top 10 kpop songs of the week: 5.16.21 to 5.22.21

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

#10 – Rie, KB & Love of OnlyOneOf – Into You

This OST from The Sweet Blood by Rie, KB and Love of OnlyOneOf has a shy, sweet quality that is so-so sweet. If you could hear a budding crush, this is what it would sound like.

#9 – fromis_9 – We Go

From its low-fi intro to its melodic final notes, We Go by fromis_9 has a fun, free-spirited vibe brought to life by the girls’ sweet harmonies.

#8 – Bling Bling – Oh Mama

Oh Mama by Bling Bling comes on bold and big in the first few seconds, and the drama keeps building through feisty rap and an oh-so catchy chorus.

#7 – TRI.BE – Rub-A-Dum

We would have thought that TRI.BE couldn’t get any better after their debut track, but Rub-A-Dum has proven us wrong. Production adds enough layers of sound to make this bop interesting without veering into noisy territory, and we’re addicted to the bridge.

#6 – Wooks – Butterfly ft. Dopein

Wooks plus Dopein proves to be an equation that results in a chill, laid-back track about coming to a person as you are and asking you to accept you, flaws and all.

#5 – Citi – I Can’t

R&B artist Citi‘s latest single shows off his silky voice perfectly, and the production gives the song a sensual, haunting quality that kept us coming back for more.

#4 – Rocket Punch – Ring Ring

Ring Ring from Rocket Punch is a synth-wave masterpiece that takes us back to the days of Aqua Net and Miami Vice, and we fall in love with it a little more with every listen.

#3 – Taemin – If I Could Tell You ft. Taeyeon

If I Could Tell You is a frisson-provoking duet that is poignant and melancholic with Taemin and Taeyeon conjuring feelings of longing with their emotional vocals. It’s the perfect soft offering to balance all of the other songs that came out this week, and it’s our favorite track off of Advice.

#2 – To1 – Son of Beast

Son of Beast has everything we love in a boy group song–a memorable chorus, a funky bass line and a breathtaking drop. With this track, TO1 proves that they’re a fourth gen one to watch.

#1 – Heize – Happen

From the first few seconds of this song with Heize‘s voice blending with that acoustic guitar, we were captivated, and with every listen, we find something new to love from how the sound builds with each verse to how those claps add just a bit of punch.
