    I. Introduction

    SM Station Season 1 is the first season of SM Station singles featuring artists from SM Entertainment. The season ran from February 3, 2016 to February 3, 2017 and included 52 singles. The singles were also released as a full album on April 6, 2017. It was followed by Season 2 in November 2018.


    II. Background & Release

    SM Station is a digital music project under SM Entertainment that involves solos or duets from members in existing SM groups, as well as opportunities for singers to experiment in other genres or collaborate with artists inside and outside of SM Entertainment. The project releases a number of singles digitally each year on digital platforms, including streaming audio like Spotify.


    SM Station was first introduced as a project under SM Entertainment intended to showcase the label's artists and producers, including collaborations with artists outside of SM. In addition to experimenting with different sounds outside of their groups, SM Station songs have provided solo or duet opportunities for members in groups. For example, in the first season, D.O., Baekhyun, Chen, Lay and Suho each had songs outside of their group EXO. The project also allows for cross-label collaboration outside of SM Entertainment, inside and outside of Korea. SM Station songs have charted in Korea and the United States. The project also encompasses remixes of SM songs, usually by DJs from SM Entertainment like Imlay or Hitchhiker, and classical symphonic versions of SM songs under the name SM Classics.


    The project originally began by releasing one digital single every Friday starting from February 3, 2016. Some of SM's most popular and recognizable artists participated, including Taeyeon, BoA and EXO. Several of the early singles charted on the South Korean Gaon Digital Charts as well as earning music awards.


    This season includes songs from first, second and third generation Kpop artists from some of SM's most popular groups and artists, including BoA, Super Junior, SHINee, f(x), Girls' Generation, Red Velvet, EXO and NCT, as well as songwriters like Kenzie and Yoo Young-jin, dubbed the "mother" and "father" of SM music, classical musicians and DJs under SM Entertainment.


    The songs were also released as a compilation album on April 6, 2017. The album reached #11 on the Korean Gaon charts.
