check out our and your 10 favorite songs released by kbands, kpop groups and solos in june 2021
10. Paradigm by Xydo
Xydo had us hitting repeat with this whispery tune with a slow and satisfying buildup that still never strays far from that smooth RnB sound he’s known for.
9. Don’t Live Me Alone by Ha Sungwoon
A whistle rides the beat of Ha Sungwoon’s b-side complete with a sultry RnB sound, retro synths and the contrast of a plucky ukelele for that fusion of styles that Sungwoon is known to bring in his diverse solo work.
8. Runaway by EXO
EXO returns with a downbeat groove rich with vocal harmonies, chants, the farewell gift of Baekhyun’s vocals, and the sweet “hello again!” of Lay’s own in this track that extends the invitation to just get away from your troubles for a little while
7. Where Are We Now by MAMAMOO
Where Are We Now? shows off a side of MAMAMOO we didn’t expect to see. Of course, it’s clear all four members are incredibly talented, but we were shook by just how gorgeous a ballad performed by them can be. We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve listened by now, but we still get chills every time.
6. Anyone by SEVENTEEN
Seventeen is back with this moody groove complete with richly, digitally altered choral vocals, a thumping bass line and their signature drama wrapped up neatly in their new comeback b-side.
5. PTT by LOONA
Eclectic samples and a relentless but simple drum beat make LOONA’s PTT (Paint the Town) a quirky and upbeat banger that makes us want to take to main street with the windows down.
4. Blue Scene by N.Flying
A classic synth drum buildup leads this guitar-driven track from N.Flying complete with a surprising rap verse that pushes the boundaries of their otherwise indie rock vibe.
3. Gambler by Monsta X
If ever a song could be oozing with BDE it’s this one from Monsta X full of hard-hitting beats, murky bass, expressive vocals, a certain confidence to the lyrics that we haven’t been able to shake since it came out.
2. Lazy by Woosung ft. Reddy
Woosung of The Rose manages to capture the feeling of laziness perfectly both with the simple melody and straightforward beat, as well as his signature vocal style. He wins our sympathy when he screams about hating shaving at the top of his lungs. Lazy is a true lifetime mood.
1. I Got U by Lucy
LUCY makes their long awaited comeback that busts right into the scene with Wonsang’s perfect slap bass laying the foundation for a matching, steady drum beat, powerful vocals and the energy of Yechan’s violin pushing the melody right along.
