It’s been a while since I highlighted a kpop group as an artist of the week so this week I went on a search to find a group that I hadn’t really listened to before and share them with you. Now, this is not a new group but they’re “semi-new” to me. I’ve heard them before but never really listened to their music. I decided to change that today and I’m glad I did!
We all need a distraction right? So why not get distracted with new music!! It just so happens that they released a new song about a week or so ago and soooo that makes this post even more perfect right?!
The group I will be highlighting today is…. 페이버릿 (FAVORITE)! A girl group signed to Astory Entertainment. They debuted in 2017 with the song “Party Time” and have since released 3 mini albums. They have a very cute pop sound and their videos are just cinematic. I’ll definitely be adding them to my radar.
Excuse me while I go do some more searching for other kpop groups I’ve been missing out on…
However, in the meantime, if you haven’t heard of 페이버릿 (FAVORITE), check out the sample playlist below!
I’ve been highlighting a lot of albums but I haven’t forgotten about the Artist of the Week! The artist I’m highlighting this week is one that I’ve heard about but never actually sat down and listened to any of his music. Biggest regret! Glad I did today!
The Artist of the Week is 프라이머리(Primary)! I really love the mellow and chill sound that he displays on his albums but especially the one below. Shininyru was released in 2017. As I was listening to it, I noticed how his music from the past is slightly different than what’s he’s been releasing lately. It’s still that same r&b sound but I think it’s starting to have more of a neo-soul feel to it.
And if you’re curious how I found him again, I was introduced to him by the song “When I fall in love” featuring Meego which came out last month. You can hear that song here.
If you haven’t heard of 프라이머리 before, check out his album Shininryu below! And don’t forget to check out his other music on Spotify as well!
I’m super excited to be making this post!!
I don’t think I ever told you guys that Red Velvet is my favorite kpop group. I’ve been a fan since “Be Natural” came out. Every time they release new music I don’t even have to listen to it to know that I’m going to love it. And their latest album is no different!
This album is like a mix between “The First Album” and “The Second Album – Repackage.” It’s so good!
Currently on repeat…
Okay, so I used a song from this album for the Kpop Teaches Korean Too post but I really had to highlight this one! I have been listening to this album almost everyday ever since it came out! I was a big fan of 2NE1 and my heart shattered to pieces when they disbanded. But following each of the member’s music careers (and Minzy’s dance career), it’s almost like having them back.
This album though… it’s sooooooo CL!! It’s such a good body of work and I’m so happy that she’s finally free to release music that represents her style and her taste! My personal favorites on the album are “Rewind”, “I Quit”, and “Paradox.”
