Top 5 Kpop MVs: ONEWE Does All the Covers! Except One

I love the concept of bands covering other bands’ songs. When done well, covers can be a tribute to the talents of the original band, and yet still leaves room for the band doing the covering to show off their own particular talents. 

After falling down a ONEWE rabbit hole the other day, I found several covers they’ve done that I love! Come see if ONEWE is good at honoring the work of the artists before them, and good at putting their own spin on things. You probably already know what I think….

Want to get a peek at what I’m listening to? Check out the Maknae Loves Kpop list on Spotify!

“Something Just Like This” (original artist – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay)

LISTEN TO THIS. JUST LISTEN. I love what ONEWE has done with this cover — it’s an inspired remix of the song and I adore it.

“Kill This Love” (original artist – Blackpink)

Who would have thought an acoustic cover of “Kill This Love” would be so brilliant? ONEWE did, obviously! Take a listen — it’s FANTASTIC.

“Latata” (original artist – G-Idle)

This is a hot take on “Latata” and I love what they’ve done with it! It’s broody and artistic and amazing.

“HIP” (original artist – Mamamoo)

How do you pay tribute to an iconic group? By doing your own inspired cover of one of their hit songs, of course. ONEWE’s cover of “HIP” rocks — and check out CyA’s rap! He’s masterful.

N.Flying – “Into the Unknown”

Surprise! This song has been stuck in my head for WEEKS, and N.Flying’s cover is the cure. Yoo Hwe Sung is scintillating with the soaring vocals — I love his voice SO MUCH.

How do you feel about covers, k-fans? Do you love them when they’re done well, like I do? Drop down in the comments and let me know!

Until the next record spins, I remain —
