January is over, and while the start of the month made for a powerful start, it closed up with a slew of jams, too. Here’s a roundup of our favorite genre-mixing K-pop tracks from these past few weeks!


“Bad Boy” – Red Velvet

The girls of Red Velvet leveled up in “Bad Boy.” The girls’ mesmerizing vocals are the stars of this smoldering trap/R&B track.


“It’s U” – Golden Child

Gol-Cha teamed up with labelmate Infinite’s frequent collaborator Sweetune for “It’s U.” We love the blend of old-school K-pop with the freshness that the boys bring to the stage.


“Love Scenario” – iKON

It’s kind of refreshing to see hip-hop group iKON take on something a bit mellower in “Love Scenario.” Is that a cowbell we hear?


“Shinin’” – Jonghyun

Jonghyun’s genre-bending, hip-swinging posthumous single is making its rounds on the charts, and we hope he knows just how well he’s done up in heaven.


“Nega Dola” – BoA

The original K-pop queen, BoA, is showing no signs of slowing down in her newest single “Nega Dola.”
