Rundown: Yoojung (OnlyOneOf), Sunmi, Fromis 9, B.I & Chuu, HUTA (BTOB), Q6IX

Share Facebook Twitter There was one song that interested me, but just not a great week overall, honestly. ====== Yoojung (OnlyOneOf) – “Begin” [embedded content] Atmospheric and synthy, this was a pleasant listen. It doesn’t jump at you and kinda leaves me uncurious about him as a soloist, but definitely something you can groove along with. —— Fromis 9 – “Stay This Way” [embedded content] The primary appeal resides in it being an upbeat summer track, but either due to technical limitations or bland production choices, it eventually kinda settles for being a soulless knockoff TWICE song. —— B.I & Chuu (LOONA) – “Lullaby” [embedded content] Works as advertised. —— HUTA (BTOB’s Minhyuk) – “BOOM” [embedded content] All I could think about during the “boom shakalaka” parts was the NBA Jam call. —— Q6IX – “Blue Heart” [embedded content] People can hate all they want, but this is unironically like help from LEEZ and Ollounder away from being better than most this year. —— Sunmi – “Heart Burn” [embedded content] The instrumental foundation of this is actually quite nice, and I was actually into it until the chorus hit and I figured out it was basically never going to do anything dynamic or really go anywhere different. That said, it was nice enough and the music video concept of basically being a man killer through time was fun.

Atmospheric and synthy, this was a pleasant listen. It doesn’t jump at you and kinda leaves me uncurious about him as a soloist, but definitely something you can groove along with.

The primary appeal resides in it being an upbeat summer track, but either due to technical limitations or bland production choices, it eventually kinda settles for being a soulless knockoff TWICE song.

People can hate all they want, but this is unironically like help from LEEZ and Ollounder away from being better than most this year.
