KMUSIC: January Spotlight
Written by Ji | 30 January 2018
The January comeback songs were full of longing, soul and heartbreak. I must admit, listening to them made my heart ache a bit but luckily there were some songs that lifted my spirit. Here are a list of comebacks that made my list for January KMUSIC Spotlight.
The first group on my list is Block B with their single, “Don’t Leave”. I love when Block B comes out with ballads. They are able to express such emotional words so perfectly with their vocals. The mix of their voices plus their beautifully done music video sets them apart from the rest of the contenders this month.
The next group is Mamamoo with their single, “Paint Me”. Mamamoo usually comes out with the same type of music, but this one had a different type of vibe. It was a different type of powerful and soulful that we normally hear from them. This song was strong and full symbolism. Each color represented a new emotion, a feeling, an expression. It was a simple but well done video that made a big impact on me.
I have listed two music videos for N. Flying, “Hot Potato”. This song brought me back to a happy state, especially their dance video. I am solely putting this on the list, because this song is awesome. Seriously, watch it. You welcome.
And lastly, Jonghyun “ Shinin”. I know, this is completely bias. He is after all my favorite in SHINEE. I always loved his voice and his ability to make music that speaks to me. (May he his soul rest in peace).
This month, like the past few month was filled with amazing comebacks from so many people groups. Here are some honorable mentions that I need to be mentioned.
Red Velvet “Bad Boy”. After watching countless videos of heartbreak and regret, this song had a different vibe of seduction and want. The beat caught my attention and the catchy chorus was stuck in my head for a few hours.
The next honorable mention goes to INFINITE, “Tell me”. By the time I got to the chorus I was hooked. INFINITE did not disappoint with their new song and their impressive dance moves.
I honestly wish I could add at least 10 more songs to this list. From Sunmi, Oh My Girl, iKON, 5TION, Kim Kyu Jong of SS501, Suzy, and many others. There were so many strong comebacks, it was hard to choose. Especially since so many of them are on my list of groups that I love to watch and listen too.
