[Weekly Chart] 4th Week of May 2021

It is time for another Weekly KPOP Chart post. This time, it is for the week that just past (i.e. 23rd May to 29th May), and not a previous week – like the one I posted for yesterday. A lot of big releases occurred this week. EVERGLOW and GWSN made their respective comebacks (which also saw them debut their new songs on the Weekly KPOP Charts below). The show Kingdom will be crowning the ‘King’ next week between SF9, ATEEZ, iKON, Stray Kids, BTOB and The Boyz. And with that comes the release of six new songs by each of the artists, which they will be performing live this coming Thursday. For the first time ever, I will be including all six songs on the Weekly KPOP Charts, thus making them eligible for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards later this year. But enough talk, let’s move onto the smaller section of the segment and get to the charts down below!

New Releases of the Week

As mentioned before, there were a number of releases this past week. In addition to EVERGLOW, GWSN and the participants of Kingdom, we saw comebacks and releases from NS. YOON G, AB6IX, BF (formerly known as Boyfriend), Kim Jae Hwan, Taeho (IMFACT member), woo!ah! and Wonwoo & Mingyu (SEVENTEEN).

Throwback corner of the Week

This week’s throwback song is NS Yoon G’s If You Love Me. She released a 2021 Version (featuring MONSTA X’s Jooheon) this week and only that version will be counted toward the Weekly KPOP Charts. But I had to compare and see if there was any difference between the 2021 version and the one released back in 2012 which features Jay Park. And then, I continued to replay the 2012 version, which leads to that version of If You Love Me being on this week’s throwback corner.

The Charts

Congratulations to Baekhyun and Seomoon Tak for this week! Their collaboration, Hurt, has topped the charts for the 4th (and final) Week of the month of May 2021. As I have yet to review the song, Hurt will be prioritized for a review and it will be published later this week! For more the charts, scroll down below!
