1.You are the best (MAMAMOO)
After first debut in 2014, girl group MAMAMOO won the majority of fans with a lively and healthy image. This year, their hit song You Are the Best within the first album Melting, which was launched on 26th February, combining characteristics of their representative songs: Mr. Ambiguous, Piano Man and Um Oh Ah Yeh—just like MAMAMOO cannot be defined with only one concept. From the beginning to the end, the changing melody will never let listeners feel bored.
2.Everytime (EXO-CHEN; Punch)
The OST for KBS 2TV drama Descendants of the Sun by EXO’s member, CHEN, soon swept Korean music charts. It was released last Wednesday with first play of drama and then beat G-friend’s Rough as long-term monopoly at seven major music websites. CHEN’s exquisite singing style perfectly sets off love line between hero and heroine and pushes audiences’ emotion to a climax while watching the drama.
With their average age of 18, G-friend is popular for their theme as high school teenage girls. They released the third album Snowflake on 25th January with title track Rough, which uses dulcet melody and difficult group dance to successfully continue G-friend’s style, establish their position in ever-changing K-pop circle. The song achieved “perfect all kill” on main seven music rankings up to 121 hours, including the Spring Festival holiday.
The member of Girl’s Generation, Taeyeon released her new single Rain as the first project of SM Entertainment this year. This medium tempo song with full of jazz soul is quite impressive for its unique melody and rhythm. Poetic lyrics draws an analogy between memories about a leaving lover and the rain, describes a romantic story. Taeyeon’s voice is always so tactful that lead us into the “rain” and that dream world.
5.Press Your Number (Taemin)
Member of SHINEE, Taemin came back with his first solo album Press It. The title song Press Your Number, produced by Bruno Mars and Stereotypes, is pop dance music, which describes an urgent mood waiting for lover. Toxic melody, movie-like circumstances in MV with a colourful and mysterious atmosphere make people addicted. This is also the first time for Taemin to participate as a lyricist.
