[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of May 2021

Another week has passed and it is time to look back at that very week. It was a fairly slow week for me. I reviewed only one comeback from the week (HIGLIGHT’s Not The End) and two other songs from last month (STAYC’s ASAP and OnlyOneOf’s libidO). I also have plans for another album review (on top of IU’s 5th studio album that I posted a few hours back) and two other song reviews that I want to post today, in keeping with the last-minute declared theme of the weekend – reviews in which I should have written sooner. So I better get cracking with those posts. But before then, here is my Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of May 2021.

News songs from this week

As just mentioned, it was a slow week. Aside from HIGHLIGHT’s comeback, there were releases from Yesung (Super Junior), Ailee and a collaboration between Bumkey and Moonbyul.

Throwback Corner

This week’s throwback song is Stray Kids’ Ta, which was a single on Stray Kids’s first album Go Live. The main reason to why this song popped up again on my radar again is because it appeared on my recommended list and why would I refuse a Stray Kids song. And since the energy from this track is so addictive, my mouse cursor found itself on the replay button many times.

The Charts

Big congratulations to ONF and their latest single, Ugly Dance, for topping the charts this week. Definitely a fun a song to listen to! This is ONF’s fourth time at the top of the charts this year, with Beautiful Beautiful topping for the other three works. For more of the charts, see below!
