We have aliens and trot rock and rookies and singing rappers this week, y’all, and I’m in love with every minute of it! Come check out what new kpop MVs I have to share with you this week.
Fistbump – “Hey Young Fellas”
Give this one a spin! The “trot meets rock” vibe is a jam, and it feels fresh. I can’t shake the early Beatles feeling it gives me too — I swear it’s not just the long hair.
Joohoney – “Smoky”
I love it so much when rappers sing, and Joohoney of Monsta X has the perfect voice to pair with solid guitar riffs and even a children’s choir. Trust me, this combination totally works.
Pentagon – “Daisy”
I’m loving the harmonies and the rhythm of this song — Pentagon is really growing into themselves, and it shows.
Enhypen – “Flicker”
I’m still trying to decide if I like this song, music fans. The boys’ skills are top-notch, but it doesn’t quite feel like they’ve gelled yet. Nevertheless, this is a good song, and I look forward to see what they do in the future. Edited to add: I got fooled good, music fans — my fault for not checking the attribution for the video. See Jude’s very helpful comment below!
VeriVery – “G.B.T.B.”
This is a total anthem and I love it. The end.
BONUS TRACK: Chen – “Hello”
My goodness, Chen’s voice is lovely and soothing and perfect for this ballad. YES I SAID BALLAD. He’s got range and this song lets him show it off — the maturity in his voice sets it apart from the usual breathy vocals.
BONUS TRACK: Lee Suhyun – “Alien”
This song is a SPLENDID bop. Suhyun could NOT get any more adorable than this, I don’t think.
Thanks once again to MiataMama, who found most of these MVs, and who was the first to slide Chen and Joohoney my direction with a “Hey! You’re gonna like this one.” Moral of the story: Get yourselves some good kpop dealers, music fans!
Until the next alien invasion, I remain —
