Playlist of the Week – Best of 2019

Wednesday, December 25th, 2019

As we round up the year (and the decade), it’s a good time to look back at all the songs that become our background score, following us wherever we went. The year truly showed a wide variety of music, introduced us to some interesting new artists, and sadly took away some from us too. The year was truly a roller coaster, and so many artists shone brighter than the sun, including several KPop artists, with their music reaching more and more listeners, and several going on major international tours.

Here’s a quick round up of the songs that defined the year, and broke the internet.

1. Old Town Road by Lil Nas X

Lil Nas seemed to have come out of nowhere and suddenly there he was, literally everywhere you went. The catchy tune, Billy Ray Cyrus, the weird video featuring some surprises, everything just came together to take over the world. And then of course, there was the added hype by the refusal of basically the entire country music fraternity in acknowledging it as a country song. Talk about a song changing the landscape.

2. Boy With Luv by BTS ft. Halsey

How can we talk about songs breaking the internet and not talk about this gem. The release of this track with Halsey shook everyone to the core, and with almost 650 million views on just YouTube, we’re obviously not exaggerating. This was definitely a big year for BTS, and they’re looking to start off next year with a bang.

3. Kill This Love by Blackpink

2019 being a killer year for KPop is definitely not an exaggeration from any angle. Another group to turn things around was 4-member girl group Blackpink. With only 7 songs to their credit, the level of popularity they have achieved is nothing short of extraordinary. Again, this song has over 650 million views on YouTube, in about 8 months. Let that sink in.

4. Senorita by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

To say this song captured everyone’s imagination would be a bit of an understatement. The sparks flew between the artists, and the world fell in love. And once they went on to announce their relationship, there wasn’t a chart left that the song wasn’t topping. It’s safe to say that this song could definitely be the song of 2019.

5. Bad Guy by Billie Eilish

Smart songwriting, videos that stayed with you long after they ended, and brilliant music doesn’t even begin to define this young woman’s charm. 2019 was definitely Billie Eilish’s year, and she’s just getting started. And when you realize that she turned 18 just last week (yup, let that sink in), there’s no one who wouldn’t be plain blown away.

Happy Listening!

Top of KPop

Friday, August 16th, 2019

While KPop has been taking the world by storm for quite some time now, it took considerably longer to make its way to India (even though we’re way closer geographically to South Korea than most other fan countries). But no matter how long it took, it seems the craze is officially here, and here to stay! And even though you might say that it isn’t your cup of tea, or your friends might claim that they would never go for it, there is definitely one song that came a while back which became so popular that it was a common addition to all dance parties (and sometimes still is, even though the song is from 2012). No clue? We’re referring to Psy’s Gangnam Style. Ahhhh. So you remember dancing to it now, don’t you?

Now that you’ve admitted that you know what we’re talking about, here’s what you need to know to dip your toes back into the giant ocean that is KPop. Here’s a lowdown on the current most popular KPop acts out there. And yes, we’re being stingy. Because there are way too many to count and list out, we’re limiting ourselves to five. But we promise to come back with more if you want.

 

1. BTS

Currently ruling across the globe, these boys are backed by a powerful army (that’s what their legions of fans are called). Not only ruling the charts, they’re also kings in terms of concerts, merch, and album sales. Bangtan Boys are definitely here to not only rule the charts but our hearts as well.

2. BLACKPINK

Currently reigning as the top girl group, these girls are really hitting it big. With only 9 songs under their belt, they’ve already performed at Coachella, among a host of other venues and festivals. Fresh faces, songs full of attitude and sass, and beats to get you grooving, we’re easily looking forward to what they get onto next!

3. EXO

Though they’ve been on the scene since 2011, and are actually often grouped in sub-groups EXO(K) and EXO(M) due some members being from South Korea and some from China. They also have a sub-unit called EXO(CBX) comprising of only three members. But whichever way you look at them, or break them down,  they show no signs of slowing down, and continue to rule the charts till date.

4. TWICE

Extremely popular, this group of 9 girls is sitting comfortably at the top, and don’t seem to be looking back. Encompassing all things that encapsulate Bubblegum Pop, they are cheery, vibrant, and oh-so-cute, and can pretty much guarantee smiles. But don’t be fooled by all the charm, because these girls are serious business, winning award after award.

5. GOT7

With 7 members from across the globe, it’s no surprise that this group has global appeal. And their music is also something that will definitely make you bust a move. And helping make them even more popular is their antics on stage, easily and seamlessly adding martial arts tricking to their performances.
