Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2013 – August Week 4

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2013 – August Week 4

For the 8th straight week, we have a new No. 1 song. This time it belongs to EXO’s “Growl.”  This song moves up seven places to take over the top spot and becomes EXO’s first ever No. 1 song on our chart.  “Growl” has swept nearly all music shows in Korea in the last two weeks and is also ranked high on independent charts, so it is not surprising to see this song being No. 1 on our chart. Despite debuting just over a year ago, EXO’s popularity is skyrocketing. It is not hard to imagine that they are following the successful footsteps of other SM Entertainment male groups like H.O.T, Shinhwa, TVXQ, Super Junior, and SHINee to become household names in K-Pop. Congratulations to EXO.

If “Growl” is to become the first song this summer to spend more than a week on top of our chart, it will have to get past 2NE1’s latest hit “Do You Love Me” which makes an impressive debut at No. 2 this week, just 17 points fewer than “Growl.” As mentioned, 2NE1 will release a new song each month in the second half of 2013. “Do You Love Me” replaces “Falling In Love” which was their single of July. Written and produced by Teddy, DEE.P, and Lydia Paek, this dance track is expected to be the next summer hit after “I’m the Best.” The music video shows the girls partying up in Seoul and Jeju Island.

The only other new song in the top 10 this week is Lim Jung Hee’s “Luv Is,” moving up 13 spots to No. 10. In this song, Lim Jung Hee joins hands with rap duo, Baechigi. It is a pop R&B number with hip-hop rhythms.  The singer’s vocals flow well with Baechigi’s.
