BTS And BLACKPINK Make Rolling Stone’s “The 50 Best Songs Of 2020” List
On December 7 local time, the American pop culture magazine published its annual picks for the 50 best songs of the year.
BLACKPINK came in on the list at No. 13 with “Ice Cream,” their summer collaboration with Selena Gomez that was also included in their eight-track “THE ALBUM.” Rolling Stone mentions the co-writing credit from Ariana Grande and describes it as a “power move on the American airwaves” from “the Korean girl-group queens.”
BTS’s “Dynamite” came in on the list at No. 7, their first all-English single released in August that was also included on their latest album “BE.” Rolling Stone mentions how “Dynamite” made history by giving BTS their first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (also a first for an all-Korean act), and describes the single as “unmistakably the sound of BTS, tapping into the spirit of Eighties disco,” and highlights Jungkook’s opening lines (in which he name-drops the words ‘Rolling Stone’).
BTS also previously made Rolling Stone’s list of the “The 50 Best Albums of 2020” with “Map of the Soul: 7.”
