Hello again! We have reached the end of April already! Time is definitely flying by this year. While this is usually daunting, it was made enjoyable with all the releases that came out this week. Usually, I am able to sneak a listen in for all new releases, but there was so much to keep up with (plus, I have pre-occupied with some personal stuff earlier in the week). I will definitely be listening to the releases that I haven’t had a chance to yet as part of the upcoming week. But (as usual), we must get through the Weekly KPOP Chart post for the week that just past before heading into the new week!
New releases of the Week
In addition to the reviews I wrote for MONSTA X’s LOVE, VERIVERY’s Undercover, Moonbyul’s C.I.T.T and Yoon Ji Sung’s BLOOM, here are the other new releases of the week:
- DECRESCENDO – Changjo (TEEN TOP)
- highway love – POLAR (Choi Junhyuk) ft. NASON
- Walking Through The Moon – Lee Sujeong
- Play Hide & Seek – ICHILLIN’
- Futt – Busters
- CREATURE – E’LAST
- Drive – Miyeon ((G)I-DLE)
- Business – Soyou ft. BE’O
- Some 2 – Soyou ft. Jung Yonghwa (CNBLUE)
- Sober – DKB
- Self Trip – MINSEO
- Thoughts of You – Jay Park ft. pH-1 & BENZO
- Milky Way – COSMO
- Ready to Ride – Kang Daniel
- Type & Delete – Kim Kyu Jong (SS501) & Lee In Jun (DGNA/The Boss) ft. Dalzi
- That That – Psy ft. SUGA (BTS)
This week’s throwback song belongs to IVE, the current power rookie that is dominating the charts in Korea with their latest single, LOVE DIVE. As LOVE DIVE is currently on the charts, it is ineligible for the Throwback Corner. But their debut single ELEVEN, which I have been listening to side by side to LOVE DIVE, is.
Non-Korean Release of the Week
The highest ranking non-Korean song this week is, ITZY’s Voltage, which placed in the 26th position for this past week. Voltage is ITZY’s first original Japanese single, which officially dropped in early April. I will definitely cover it in a future International Song Review post.
Congratulations to MONSTA X for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 4th Week of April 2022 with their latest single, LOVE. For more of the charts, keep on reading.
