Red Velvet Remains On Top With “Russian Roulette”; Soompi’s K-Pop Music Chart 2016, October Week 2

Red-Velvet1

The top three songs remained the same as last week, with Red Velvet’s “Russian Roulette” as No. 1 for the third week in a row! Despite not winning on any music shows last week, “Russian Roulette” remains the most consistent song on our chart and easily wins against the same challengers.  Congratulations again to Red Velvet!

Maintaining their places at No. 2 and No. 3 are Lim Chang Jung’s “The Love I Committed” and BLACKPINK’s former No. 1 song “Whistle.”

There are three new songs in the top 10 this week! Moving up seven spots to No. 5 is INFINITE’s “The Eye,” which is the title song from their sixth mini-album “INFINITE ONLY.” The dreamy vocals of the INFINITE members will captivate your ears throughout the song. “The Eye” won on “Inkigayo,” “Music Bank,” and “M!Countdown” last week, but is not ranked as high in other sources.

Also moving up seven spots to No. 6 is MAMAMOO’s “New York.” This song is a preview single released ahead of MAMAMOO’s upcoming comeback album in October. It’s a funky dance song with a minimal instrumental that highlights MAMAMOO’s strong vocals!

Debuting at No. 10 is Apink’s new song “Only One,” which is the title song from their third full length album “Pink Revolution.” This song has a vintage Apink style intro and a mid-tempo dance melody. It’s a sweet love story about a woman who expresses how she feels towards her boyfriend.
