Apologies for the delay in posting the Weekly KPOP Charts for last week. I focused on the Queendom 2 recaps last weekend, which ended bumping this post to the side. It is looking like the same thing will happen this weekend, as I still have the second half of Round 3 to cover and the finale (which is currently airing as I write this). I will endeavor to get the next Weekly KPOP Chart post this week out as soon as possible after I finish up with the Queendom 2 posts (yes, the goal for this week is to finish off Queendom 2, so I can get back on catching up with song and album reviews).
New releases of the Week
- Do you wanna get down – LUNARSOLAR
- Thumbs Up – BLANK2Y
- ALIVE – LIGHTSUM
- Pisces – Yerin Baek
- VENOM – BVNDIT
- CLASSY – CLASS:y
- Gotta Get Back – P1Harmony ft. Pink Sweat$
While my memory does fail me from time to time, I was smart enough to make note of last week’s throwback song. Otherwise, we would be looking at a second week without a throwback song. Hyolyn’s appearance on Queendom 2 got me going through Sistar’s discography, and Give It To Me emerged as one of the songs that got a lot of replays.
Non-Korean Release of the Week
As SEVENTEEN made their comeback this week with HOT, Darl+ing also received the most listens this week on the ‘Non-Korean song’ front. This is thanks to the repeated listens of the album I gave over the two days it was out (simply because I forgot I had already checked out the album, and proceeded to check it out whilst working and writing the Queendom recaps). For those who don’t know, the English-language song is featured on their latest album, Face The Sun. This is in addition to the usual listens I give songs on the charts. Darl+ing placed in the 11th position last week.
Congratulations to GOT7 for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 4th Week of May 2022 with their long awaited comeback single, NANANA. For more of the charts, keep on reading.
