BTOB – Outsider

BTOB 4U, the well-known boyband BTOB’s subunit, has made a comeback with the release of their special album “4U: OUTSIDE,” which has the song “Outsider” as its title track. The song is fascinating because to Eun-kwang and Chang-sub’s smooth and silky voices, as well as Peniel and Min-hyuk’s addictive rapping skills, which blends well with the funky brass instrumentals. The simple yet groovy dance break, combined with Michael Jackson’s iconic influenced moves, keeps you fascinated until the very end. The music video is a wonderful match for the song, expressing the artists’ desire to be an outsider, breaking out from the mundane and gloomy world they live in.

fromis_9 – Talk & Talk

“Talk and Talk” is fromis_9’s first new single in over four months, following their well-received summer comeback “We Go”. The verses, which find a good mix between charming and bubbly, maintain the harmony. The move from melody to rap in the second verse is especially pleasant, as the music continues to grind along. The MV is clearly eye-catching right from the beginning. The vivid colours and vintage phones are the two things that jump out at first sight. The nonet has filled the song with a brilliant and dazzling melody, as well as their adorable and charming dance and visuals, have won many fans across the world.

LOONA – Not Friends

With the release of the song “Not Friends,” LOONA revealed their collaboration with the well-known producer Ryan Jhun. The members of the girl group that took part in the song included HeeJin, Kim Lip, JinSoul, and Yves. ‘Not Friends’ is the second song from Ryan Jhun’s ‘MAXIS By Ryan Jhun’ project, which began last month with the single “Maniac”, which featured NCT members Doyoung and Haechan. The song is a bop because it combines pop, acoustic rock, and hip-hop components with the four members’ lovely voices. In its lyrics, it expresses a desire to tear down barriers between friendship and love.

A.C.E – Changer

“Changer” is the title track from A.C.E.’s second repackaged album, “Changer: Dear Eris”. It might be a farewell present from A.C.E to its fans, as members Wow and Donghun have stated that they would be enlisting the army later this month. The song comprises a lot of synths and upbeat voices as well as it has a strong forward drive and is nicely balanced. It’s a much lighter than their prior title tracks, without the powerful EDM drops that they’re known for. It’s really refreshing and goes well with the album’s theme. I suppose the song and choreography work together to create an ambiance that you just can’t help at but smile.

MCND have returned with their third mini-album, “THE EARTH: SECRET MISSION Chapter.1,” featuring the title track “Movin’”. The members appear in the music video dressed as kids on a school bus, receiving a secret task via phone call that they must fulfill. The song has the same high-octane intensity as the title of the song and gets everyone moving! The lyrics are about persevering in the face of adversity in order to keep going forward. It’s an explosive hip-hop music with a thrilling chorus and dynamic rapping that will have you moving straight away!

ONEUS – Life is Beautiful

ONEUS dropped their third digital single, “ONEUS Theatre: Life is Beautiful.” It’s the second installment of their “ONEUS Theatre” special project. Life Is Beautiful highlights the guys’ lighter side, in comparison to “Shut Up Crazy Hot!” from last month. It’s a bright pop concoction, full of cheerful energy and musical richness. The boys’ vocals take on a lovely, airy tone as the shimmering guitar provides excellent texture which then progresses to a jubilant chorus. The song envelops you in a melodic hug, countering the song’s repetitious, simple words with exuberant pop language. In the MV, the transition from a school auditorium to a beach is shown through which ONEUS conveys the lovely message that, despite one’s hectic lifestyle, one should take some time to appreciate the wonderful parts of life! The members undoubtedly instilled a sense of hope in the crowd, which has resulted in smiles.
