HERE ARE MY BRUTALLY HONEST OPINIONS ON THE TOP 5 BEST AND WORST KPOP SONGS RELEASED SO FAR THIS YEAR...

  • I was bored, so why not....this is just for promoted singles that I've heard btw. I'll do a separate thread for b-sides with no promo. Prepare for my brutally honest opinions. If you get triggered easily, this ain't the thread for you.


    :peperun:


    BEST


    Honorable mentions:


    All Your Fault by Yugyeom ft. Gray - This is a grower for sure. Really enjoy the vibes! The melodies are satisfying too... Not familiar with him at all but interested to see what he does next. Think this was his solo debut... Pretty solid!

    Butter by BTS - Nice song for the summer! A follow up to Dynamite, with it being their second English song. I'm obsessed with the chorus! The lyrics are really fun too! Dig the 80s vibes.... Beat slaps!

    Top 5


    5. ASAP by STAYC - I really really like this. Cutesy done right! So freaking addictive, with crazy replay value! I did not like their debut and kinda wrote them off but if they stick with this vibe they might blow up. Let's see what they do next!

    4. Poison by Pink Fantasy - This song was unexpected but amazing! I am really into the heavy metal vibes. They pull this concept off perfectly. Their vocals are insane too...prolly the best I've heard in kpop.

    3. 0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) ft. Seori - This makes me feel nostalgic in a way.... It's a very powerful song that makes you think! I actually like the minimal feature. Seori complimented them nicely! Another great title/song to add to their amazing discography. Rock TXT should definitely be explored more often!

    2. Film Out by BTS - This is such a beautiful song...I can't get over it!!! Only gets better with time. The second half of the song is iconic and some of BTS best. It just keeps hitting you with greatness and gets better and better as the song progresses. Another amazing song to add to the best discography.

    1. Magic by TXT - BOP BOP BOP BOP BOPPPPPPPPP! I have been obsessed with this song since my very first listen. I love it so much... what a great first English song. Best song from their latest album if you ask me! The replay value is off thecharts...sTXT don't miss!!!!

    WORST


    Honorable Mentions:


    First by Everglow - This is like a Stray Kids reject....it's just not it. Dramatic af and for what??? The rapping is so bad and the beat is a wreck. I like the hook enough but everything else is a big yikes...especially the ending. This group has potential but idk...

    On The Ground by Rose - What a snoozefest....how is this a solo debut? This song is just not it. The build up to the chorus is so cringe. The chorus is blah and the song is forgettable overall. It felt like the words "on the ground" repeated itself for 2 minutes. I'd say it was a disappointment but my expectations were already low....

    Top 5


    5. Mafia In The Morning by Itzy - The choreo was fun but the chorus....just no. And the beat is just an even bigger no. It's like a kid was banging around pots and pans and someone on crack thought it would make a fire beat and recorded it. Idk wtf that was.... What is this song even about??? It sounds like a Blackpink ripoff low key.

    4. Hot Sauce by NCT Dream - Good lawwwwwd they had a fire beat and totally wasted it! This easily could have been a bop, but that shouting of Hot Sauce took me out! It's annoying af!!! Sounds like a bunch of snot nosed kids shouting into the mic. I just can't... And WTH was that techno bridge???? This should of stayed in the SM basement...never deserved to see the light of day.

    3. Next Level by Aespa - I truly question who actually likes this song. Can't deny that it's a hit but it's honestly just a mess.... I swear I'm listening to 4 songs in one...coulda made an album instead from this one song alone. That beat switch in the middle made no sense. It shoulda been it's own song for real tho...might of been a bop. Black Mamba was decent so idk what went wrong in the SM lab this time. You know a song is gonna be bad when even the original sample is...

    2. Vanilla by Lightsum - I was into their pre-debut promo so I was actually pretty interested in their debut. Big mistake!!! This song is bleh! That Vanilla nilla nilla part gives me nightmares. The chorus is one of the most annoying ones I've ever heard. Then they had to make it even worse by adding this terrible techno edm beat in some parts. The bridge and ending was awful. And what was the point of the "rap"??? STOP IT! YOU DON'T NEED TO THROW IN RANDOM CRINGE RAPS.

    1. Xtra by AleXa - I honestly don't know what this company thought putting this song out. There were moments where I thought oh this girls voice is pretty...only to be ruined by lyrics that were cringe to the max. Give this girl a ballad or vocal heavy song. Please please stop with this tired "swaggy" act. It is not it!!! I swear this song sounds like a Cheetah Girls reject from 2003. I cringe just thinking about it...wish I could burn it from my memory. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!

    Well there you have it...Ready to cancel me? Totally agree? Leave your thoughts below! Also feel free to post your top 5 best and worst of 2021 so far. I'm sure our opinions will vary...


    :pepe-devil:

  • I look forward to the rest of your opinions!

  • How do we know if theres no bias evaluation here.

    :pepestare:

    Butter is not it. Film out is a great song.


    On the Ground, not a fan. Prefer Gone.


    Mafia in the morning, I like it. The start of the song is very odd.


    Next level. Okay, nothing special. Bcs theres 2 version of the song.


    Worst song Ive heard this year. Sadly its Alcohol-free.


    Best song? My Sea by IU.

  • Obviously I'm gonna like songs from my faves... that's why they are my faves. If it was fake I woulda had butter #1 but I only had it as an honorable mention lol

  • Ooop :eyes:


    Your top 5 are bops. I never heard the poison song before but it’s actually really good! The yugyeom song in your honourable mentions is okay but I think I’m just not a fan of his voice


    I agree with 4/5 songs for your worst list. I’m a MITM stan it’s a bop. But I will ignore this slander since I like you. The other songs though are …😬 most are similar to my worst ill mention why I don’t like them when I write my list.


    This year actually has so many bad releases I realised that it was way easier to narrow down my favs than to to narrow down the songs I dislike because yikes there’s a lot

    ~Oh it’s just like Magic!!~

    my-biases2.gif

    ~You have stolen my heart~


  • I only have one song in your best which TXT 0X1= Lovesong.


    I actually would put ASAP and Next Level in the grower addicting category.


    I find you description of Lightsum Vanilla pretty interesting. I'm glad OMG decided to skip Steven Lee for their latest comeback because the song was giving me so much NS 2.0 so much.

  • I’m gonna do my own list too becaue why not lol


    My top 5 best songs


    Honourable mention


    after school - weekly - a bop only decided to listen this week and I love it. will probably rise

    Film out - bts - it’s such a beautiful song and the vocals are amazing

    Magic- txt. My other fav song on the new album


    5) Mafia in the morning - itzy

    Everyone hates this bop but it’s so good! I still have it on repeat, it’s addicting ! It’s in your worst cactus 🤣


    4) ASAP - StayC

    Iconic. StayC are turning out to be one of the best 4th gen ggs. This song is a bop, love the vocals and the chorus is so fun and bouncy


    3) 0X1=LOVESONG - TXT

    I love the rock vibes to this song and seori’s vocals with the boys were beautiful. One of my fav txt songs to date. It’s so good also Taehyuns vocals were amazing!!!!


    2) Butter - BTS

    A bop! Such a fun song to dance. This song makes me happy whenever I listen, don’t think I’ll get bored of it anytime soon. Also yoongis rap is iconic


    1)Illa Illa - B.I

    This song made me cry. It was such a beautiful solo debut after everything that happened. The lyrics were beautiful and very personal to him and I could just feel the emotions. The song has such a beautiful ending of hope I really love this song a lot


    My top 5 worst songs

    Honourable mentions

    first - everglow

    Vanilla - lightsum


    5) On the ground - Rosé

    I agree it Was a disappointing solo debut. Was just very boring for me and the repetition of on the ground was annoying


    4) Don’t call me - shinee

    I really enjoy shinee but wow was this a disappointment. It’s like sm gave shinee an nct reject song last minute and was like here shinee sing this. It had no shinee flair to it at all. And that chorus was really not it.


    3) I’m the one - Ateez

    this song was so messy. It just sounded all over the place and I didn’t like the rap verses. Just Nope


    2) Hot Sauce - NCT dream

    This song gave me an actual headache 🥴 it was not for me. Out of all nct units I actually enjoy dream and they even have my fav member Haechan but this song was bad.


    1) Next Level - Aespa

    The beat switches did not sound good to me at all. I didn’t enjoy the raps in this song during the switch up also. And I agree the original is bad but this remake was even worse than the OG. Probably my least liked sm girl group song ever
