We are already in the last week of February!!! It is getting hotter as we march towards more amazing comebacks and OSTs. (pun intended). The last week of February brought in more and more surprises with comebacks from Wonho, CL, Sunmi, and powerful debut from ATO6 and PIXY.

Please note: Some songs are not yet available on Spotify or iTunes yet. 

 

Albums/Mini albums:

WONHO – Lose

Wonho’s second mini-album Love Synoymn #2: Right For Us is a follow-up to his debut mini-album. The singer is back with a foot-tapping track and his signature sexy look. Lose begins with a low tempo and slowly descends into EDM beats. With an album that is a love letter for his fans and supports, Wonho’s latest album is a delightful and emotional treat of music, lyrics and his signature moves.

IMLAY  – Too Good (ft. Chenle of NCT)

A futuristic music video, with rising synth beats, IMLAY’s Too Good is sung by NCT’s Chenle. The song feels like an introduction to a video game. The chorus of the song ‘Too Good To Be True’ is back with synth beats that make it an earworm listen. My favourite part of the video was the animated view of Earth and clouds. What’s yours?

WEi – All or Nothing (Prod. Jang Dae Hyeon)

A hip-hop song through and through, WEi’s All or Nothing will make an impact on you with the daring visuals. WEi are still rookies by measure, but they pack immense potential when it comes to the music and the dance. All or Nothing features a rap that just blazes its way through the song and makes it a highlight.

The duo Keembo are back with yet another album that will make you their if you aren’t one already! Inside is a groovy disco dance number that gives a classic early 2000s vibe.

ONF – Beautiful Beautiful

With an MV that looks straight out of the future, ONF’s Beautiful Beautiful is a super upbeat track that will make you jump up and down. I’m not kidding, I actually did that. Jokes apart, the track is just as beautiful in the lyrics as the music video. A song that makes you believe in yourself and gives a good boost of serotonin, ONF’s Beautiful Beautiful should be up there on your travel playlist.

Singles:

Sunmi  – TAIL

After Chung Ha stole our breaths last week, this week Sunmi fills in the gaps. Tail  is a classic Sunmi track with provocative lyrics and choreography with a certain mad charm of the singer. You just cannot keep yourself away from this new hauntingly seductive track. The electro beats that rise with the tense tempo, ensnare you in the charm that is Sunmi’s Tail.

Park Moonchi, Young K – What a Wonderful World

A peppy alternate track, What a Wonderful World will make you look up in the sky and sigh what a wonderful world indeed. This track is a pleasant listen for a sunny day out in the park or an evening walk. Young K’s vocals match beautifully to Park Moonchi’s alternative trap and RnB beats. A track about feelings that cannot be explained despite adding fancy vocab, expresses the feelings smoothly.

Paul Kim – Love Letter

Paul Kim and ballad go hand in hand. Ending the month of love and heartache with a love letter, Paul Kim gives a superb confessional lyrical ballad to the listeners. Love Letter is an achingly emotional track that will make you go back to the day you fell and realized you were in love. Who knows, maybe it will make you pen a love letter or two?

Debut:

PIXY – Wings

PIXY’s debut single Wings gives the listeners hope for more dark, fantasy themed concepts. The members are nicely highlighted in the track, playing to their strenghts. The goth vibes in the song are artfully shown in the video. The song does not set them apart from the crowd but does keep them in the loop.
