9 Relatable Female Solo Releases To Get You In Your Feelings
The beauty of music is that we more often than not find ourselves captivated by the messages it conveys. Korean female solo acts have been releasing songs that embody an incredible amount of emotion which we can’t help but earnestly relate to.
Here is a non-exhaustive selection of female solo releases that are bound to get you in your feelings.
1. Taeyeon – “What Do I Call You”
Taeyeon perfectly describes the situation that takes place after a break up. The person that used to be your soulmate is nothing but a stranger now, and it only gets more awkward the more you try to make it work. What do we even call a situation like this?
2. Jessi – “Numb”
In Jessi’s version, breakups end in an ugly way. She emphasizes that some relationships are too toxic to try to fix, and the only solution left is to cut that person off. Thankfully, a solid support system such as the one provided by loyal friends can help numb the pain.
3. MAMAMOO’s Hwasa – “LMM”
This masterpiece by Hwasa hits hard and deep both visually and lyrically. The soloist basically sends a message about not being too hard on herself when she feels lost and keeping hope as much as possible.
4. CL – “5STAR”
CL wears the romance cape in this MV where she walks us through what seems to be a classic description of a relationship. Ups and downs are bound to happen, but at the end of the day, partners being there for one another is all it takes to make it work.
5. Heize – “Your Name”
Ever got haunted by a love interest from your past? Heize takes us back to an earlier era and talks of a long lost love that is yet to be retrieved between the past and present. Yet, that doesn’t stop her from hoping that one day she’ll manage to call out their crush’s name.
6. Suran – “Relax Moment”
Nothing gets us in our feelings like a chill song narrating cute moments in a love story. Fuzzy and warm, this lullaby by Suran draws a heartwarming picture of what it feels like to be in a healthy and happy relationship!
7. Sunmi – “Borderline”
Sunmi gets real in this revealing track where she addresses her mental health. This release serves both as a reminder that everyone has their own battles to fight every day and as solace for people who are going through something similar.
8. BLACKPINK’s Rosé – “Gone”
Heartbreak is never easy, and it takes a lot of time and effort to mend the wounds that it leaves behind. Rosé knows this all too well as she vividly sings about it, using heartwrenching metaphors that candidly convey how she felt at the moment.
9. IU – “BBIBBI”
Getting in touch with your feelings doesn’t always mean getting soft. In IU’s case, it’s all about summoning your badass self and standing up against everyone who wants to bring you down. After all, feeling confident is the biggest flex you can flaunt.
