[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of September 2021

And we begin September! It has felt like time has been going by so quickly lately, even though I am stuck at home (still in lockdown 😟). With my move officially completed (and I have a proper desk!), I will use my free time I have stuck at home to focus on the blog. I started this officially yesterday, with three reviews crossed off. And I will try my best to keep up with the constant releases and also the bouncing around to ‘old releases’. But before I can proceed forward, here are the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of September 2021.

Please note I realized I had stuffed up the rankings changes (i.e. the status column) of last week’s Weekly KPOP Charts. The songs were in the right positions, just the numbers of spots that they dropped or increased by were incorrect. If you would like to look over the new information, please check out the post for the 4th Week of August 2021.

New releases of the week

I have only managed to get around to reviewing BTOB’s Outsider, fromis_9’s Talk & Talk and A.C.E’s Changer this week. But these aren’t the only three releases that were dropped during the week. Many other songs were released alongside those three (listed below). These songs are also eligible for placement on the charts and some will be reviewed some time in the future.

  • Hate That… – Key (SHINee) ft. Taeyeon (SNSD)
  • life vest – Kim Jeong Uk
  • Movin’ – MCND
  • Lemonade – Lee Eun Sang
  • MI CASA SU CASA – Heo Young Saeng (SS501)
  • Alive – ASTRO
  • Life Is Beautiful – ONEUS
  • Not Friends – Ryan Jhyun & Heejin, Kim Lip, Jinsoul, Yves (LOONA)
  • Dizzy – W.A.O
  • Savior – Lee Hi ft. B.I.

Throwback Corner

I was in a Pentagon mood this past week. And Daisy was the most listened to song of the week on this Pentagon binge. Unfortunately, their recent release (Cerberus) just didn’t make it into this week’s binge session.

The Charts

Congratulations to BTOB, who recently released single, Outsider, had managed to clinch the top spot for this past week. For more of the charts, check out below.

  1. What I love about your weekly chart that I had recently noticed is the ‘Throwback Corner’. It’s always nice to look back at songs even if they are not recent. That’s a testament to how music is timeless hehe.
    Speaking of Throwback Corner: I feel you. I definitely understand that feeling when you’re in that phase to binge-listen to an artist’s discography. It’s sure a rollercoaster to be on! “Daisy” is a really easy song to indulge in! I love that song too.
    And yeah, “Cerberus” is definitely a very interesting song haha. It’s the most unique song we got from Pentagon (even if its not a whole group comeback), and I admire team Mayonnaise (that’s what the maknae line call themselves after a variety Pentagon episode. It’s a cute inside joke.) for their ambition. It’s just something I won’t go out of my way to listen to, unfortunately.

    By the way, kudos to you for compiling all the latest songs into a chart! That’s an interesting yet cool way to show how much a song has grown or dropped for you. Interesting to see The Boyz’s “Thrill Ride” has been holding strong for you (can’t blame you though. I mean, the ride is just too infectious to keep going for more rounds, right?).

    And hey, don’t worry about being behind on the releases. K-pop has been really busy this year, and life gets busy. So your wellbeing should be prioritised. You do the reviews of past (and even future) songs at your own pace 🙂

    1. Thanks for your kind comments. I blame YouTube for my binges. It knows me so well that it knows what I want to listen next. A few songs later and I have an auto playing playlist that keeps on reccomending the right songs for me.

      The charts used to take a lot of time, but I managed to automate some parts, so it is a lot easier now. Oh technology, what would we do without it!

      Yup, cant get Thrill Ride out of my head. The song is so catchy and the performance is so much fun to watch.

      And dont worry about me :). I used to be on top of reviews a long time ago, but life has definitely gotten hectic lately. I just feel like I have slacking lately. Also, make sure you priortise your health and wellbeing as well!!!


      1. Technology sure is wonderful (no sarcasm there I swear)! That’s good to hear you have found a more convenient way to manage the charts.

        Honestly, The Boyz’s “Thrill Ride” felt underwhelming at first. I mean… this came out on the same day as Ha Sungwoon’s “Strawberry Gum” and ONF’s “Popping” and those songs I got hooked in immediately. Give me some leeway here Deobis (The Boyz fans) haha. But you’re so right. The song is indeed catchy like that chorus being such an earworm. Plus, The Boyz’s energetic performance really elevate the song for me as well.

        Thank you too for your sweet words! Life can unfortunately get overwhelming, especially given the circumstances we are in… But as cheesy as it is, everyone is in this together ^^
