13 K-Pop Songs From 2017 To Put On Your Summer Party Playlist
No summer is complete without great party bangers, and 2017 has already blessed us with so many awesome jams! If you are ready to dance your heart out and listen to some incredible beat drops, add these songs to your party playlist!
Let’s turn up!
1. iKON – “B-Day”
iKON is the real MVP when it comes to K-pop bangers and they didn’t let us down this year, either. Both “Bling Bling” and “B-Day” are perfect choices for a wild night out, but that’s just something about “B-Day” that screams party time.
2. Brave Girls – “Rollin'”
It’s easy to fall in love with Brave Girls’ latest single, as the playful melody and the catchy refrain tend to get stuck in your head after one listen. The crazy sexy choreography makes the girls’ comeback even better!
3. A.C.E – “Cactus”
A.C.E’s “Cactus” is among the greatest debut songs this year without a doubt! The choreography is jaw-dropping, and it’s impossible not to lose your mind when the beat finally drops.
4. IMFACT – “Tension Up”
“Tension Up” has everything we need this summer: an uplifting beat, a catchy phrase to sing along to, and fun choreography. These guys are capable of pulling off every concept perfectly; it’s a blessing they surprised us with a party song this time.
5. MONSTA X – “Shine Forever”
MONSTA X did that. Again. The “Beautiful” album was full with unbelievably catchy bangers, and we all know that “Oi” and “Ready Or Not” belong to a list of the greatest party jams, but we shouldn’t forget their newest release, “Shine Forever.” If MONSTA X continues to drop amazing songs like this, they will definitely shine for a long, long time!
6. Hyoyeon feat. San E – “Wannabe”
We needed to wait way too much for Hyoyeon’s solo songs, but it was worth it! Hyoyeon is a real dancing queen in the MV, and she demonstrates her rap and vocal skills and just as well! San E’s verse adds an exciting spice to “Wannabe,” too.
7. 24K – “Only You”
“Only You” is probably not what you’d expect from 24K, but even though they left the hard EDM vibes of “Bingo” and “Still 24K” behind, the new single still delivers a beat you can jam to. It’s also refreshing to see our boys spicing the choreo up with black leather pants.
8. BLANC7 – “YEAH”
Prepare yourself: the beat is crazy with this one, too! The 7-member rookie group debuted this march with “YEAH,” and the track is a flawless EDM party song. Yes, we all just wanna yeah, yeah, yeah with you guys!
9. Yezi – “Anck Su Namum”
You might have some trouble remembering the song’s title at first, but Yezi’s new single deserves your attention. Fiestar’s rapper is beautiful and fierce in the MV, the lyrics are on point, and the rap is lit as always.
10. Seven O’Clock (SOC) – “Echo”
We are all spoiled with talented rookie groups this year! Seven O’Clock experimented with the tropical house sound on their first track, and they pull it off well. Listening to this can be quite addictive though, as the melody is just too catchy not to get stuck in your head for hours.
11. Minzy feat. Flowsik – “Ninano”
Minzy’s first single after her departure from 2NE1 is certainly a super summer jam. The melody is the real catch here, but Minzy’s singing and rap skills are just as bomb. This dance track is able to jolly up any party!
12. Unit Black – “Steal Your Heart”
Don’t feel bad if you couldn’t fully understand BOYS24’s concept; you are not alone. After last year’s “E” by Unit Yellow, Unit Black got the opportunity this year to promote “Steal Your Heart.” Let’s be honest, they did what they promised in the title: stole everyone’s heart with this song.
13. NCT 127 – “Cherry Bomb”
Fresh out of the oven, “Cherry Bomb” earned a spot on our summer playlist for sure. It’s just so easy to go with the flow of the song, and you just can’t take your eyes off of the boys’ powerful dance moves. The track is bold and experimental, and they are even able to make “If you happy and you know it, clap your hands” sound swag, so it’s worth a listen.
