K-Pop is taking over the world right now, with emerging music and entertainment. The previous years of pandemics got us into K-dramas and K-Pop and there has been no going back. With BTS and Blackpink making headlines worldwide, here is the curated list of top K-Pop songs of 2022 so far!
GingaMingaYo (the strange world), Billlie
Billlie's 'GingaMingaYo' is said to be one of the best K-pop songs. The title of the song means 'unknown'. The song is garnering acclaim across the world as people groove to its unconventional beats.
Love Dive, IVE
IVE made their debut with their song 'Eleven' last year, and with the release of their latest single 'Love Dive', the group confidently declares that they are not a one-hit-wonder. 'Love Dive' is dreamy and ethereal. You can't help but be submerged in their decadent voices as IVE invites everyone to dive into the feeling of love.
Fearless, Le Sserafim
Le Sserafim, the first girl group to represent HYBE, shunned everyone with their song "Fearless" which far exceeded everyone's hopes. The song's chorus which has the sassy phrase 'what you lookin' at' repeated over a smooth bass groove, is a big reason why people keep listening to it over and over.
Maniac, Stray Kids
Stray Kids is no stranger to releasing rousing bangers, and the group amps up the frenzy in 'Maniac'. The trap and electropop track is about deviating from what society considers proper and releasing one's inner self without fear of being judged. "On the inside, I'm always a freaky monster," Han admits before Changbin taunts, "You're wrong if you think I'm just pure and innocent."
Devil, Max Changmin
The main attraction in 'Devil', a remake of Swedish artist Alex Runo's 2021 song of the same name, is, without a doubt, Max Changmin's voice. This is evident from the opening, which features no instrumentals to distract from the TVXQ vocalist's rich tone, and the chorus, which features his soaring melodies over a slithering bass line. A haunting Cappella motif and pulsating drum beats amplify this R&B track's exquisite quality, but it's Max Changmin's singing that seduces with the force of a devil's temptation.
