On the finish of every month, I look again at my three favourite title tracks by Ok-pop artists. I take my very own rankings into consideration, however there’s a little bit of wiggle room as sure songs are likely to develop or fade.
April 2023 General Ideas
I’ve been complaining about Ok-pop rather a lot this yr, however April was the primary month that gave me some hope for 2023’s potential. It’s additionally the primary month that delivered a couple of 9+ rated monitor (if taking my risers and fallers into consideration). We undoubtedly wanted the increase!
My high three selections of April have been vaguely aggressive, and that’s extra I can say about the remainder of the yr. I had a really shut fourth place (Xikers’ Rockstar) and plenty of strong honorable mentions. However, my high two selections have been on heavy rotation since launch. There’s type of a wall between them and the remaining.
April led to tragedy, with the premature passing of Astro’s Moonbin. Deaths within the idol group have a definite solemnity that ripples via your entire trade. As at all times, I hope companies take this as a reminder that psychological well being must be their high precedence. What’s taking place to those younger performers is totally heartbreaking.
April noticed the tip of Boys Planet, a prolonged sequence that I reluctantly recapped! I need to be optimistic concerning the group it spawned, however this system’s authentic songs don’t give me a ton of hope. It will be fantastic if ZEROBASEONE grew to become one of many yr’s most fun rookies. My fingers are crossed!
As I’ve talked about a number of occasions on Twitter, I must know the place a few of my MVP Ok-pop producers have gone. Unsurprisingly, I’m lacking Sweetune probably the most. It’s not a joke after I say we want them to “save” Ok-pop. Or on the very least, I want a few of these new producers to check the greats and provides us a style of the greatness the trade was constructed upon.
J-pop wasn’t fairly as sturdy this month, although my weekly characteristic of latest and notable songs continues to chug alongside. I hope you’re all having fun with the highlight and have discovered some treasures alongside the way in which. I love my high track on the month, however that’s no shock. I are likely to adore something this group releases.
Could feels prefer it’s going to be a busy month, and we’re heading into Ok-pop’s all-important summer time interval. Final yr, the overwhelming majority of my high ten EOY songs got here from the summer time season, so I hope for a repeat in 2023! On the very least, SHINee are slated for a return and also you know that’s going to be good.
