August seems to have flown away so quickly. It seems like only a week ago when we were jamming to (G)I-DLE’s DUMDi DUMDi and going crazy over Kang Daniel’s banger collaboration!

This week of August however has been a great way to end this amazing month as this week saw releases that shook not just the K-Pop World but the Global Music World itself!

Check out the list below.

 

      1. BLACKPINK – ‘Ice Cream (with Selena Gomez)’

It is really as sweet as an ice cream 😉

A fun bubblegum pop track song with everybody’s teenage popstar idol, Selena Gomez, BLACKPINK’s ‘Ice Cream’ sees the girls shed off the more sassy, mature sides that they have been displaying in the recent years and go back to the pretty pop teen sensations. The highlight of the track however is definitely the highly euphonious vocals of each artist that sound simple and sweet but are actually really hard to just flawlessly sing as they did in the track!

      2. KARD – ‘GUNSHOT’

KARD wasn’t playing around when they titled the track GUNSHOT because that is exactly what it is!

With a dramatic music video that is even more alluring than ‘You In Me’ and ‘Bomb Bomb‘, KARD has definitely pulled out all stops on this comeback as they come back with a darker palette that banks on powerful visuals and vocals, dope rap flows and a production that weaves into the track everything from a thundering drum sound to gun-shots 😉

It’s official, it’s official now, CRAVITY’s here to take the rookie crown! 

The way the mellifluent vocals intertwine with the powerful rap flows of the track is just remarkable! Add to this the heavy percussion, incredible synth and the opening beats of the track and you have got an absolute banger of a track that sounds just as unique as it is amazing!

      4. SEVENTEEN – ‘24H’

Charm the listeners with visuals, vocals, everything!

Oozing charisma in their classy but trendy outfits like a cropped top, SEVENTEEN’s fourth Japanese single carries the same energy and vibrancy as the others and actually seems to be building up on that. With a groovy beat, powerful dance routine and vocals that scream power as well, SEVENTEEN seems to be out to steal some wigs 😉

      6. The Rose – ‘Black Rose’

Just one word for this track- ‘Beautiful’!

In these tense times, the inspiring message of how everything will okay soon and so we shouldn’t be afraid and the way the track is titled after the group’s fandom name, is what makes this track extra special. Sporting the gorgeous, angelic vocals of members and the skilled instrumentation that the band is known for, ‘Black Rose’ is a very comforting and soulful song that is a recommended must-add to all your “evening/late night” playlists 🙂

      10. Kim Jaehwan – ‘I’m Not Okay’

I really am not okay, I’m mesmerised!

With a voice that seems to be destined to sing ballads, Kim Jaehwan in ‘I’m Not Okay’ leaves you with goosebumps all over and so shook with the feels that it taken you sometime to snap out of the charms of the track. His soulful, expressive vocals and the way he hits the high notes as if it was a piece of cake is what makes this track so very impressive!
