It’s June and it’s extremely hot in Vegas!! Why not beat the heat with these cool beats! Haha sorry, I am attempting to make this fun, but for real, it’s super hot.
10. Rain Sounds – Migyo
This song is all about missing someone, and how everything falls to memory after a long time. Through the video she goes through the grief of breaking up, and longs for them to comeback or call her when they are drunk. She talks about how her heart is stunned by the sorrow she feels and how everything she remembers is just a memory and no longer things that are happening at the moment.
9. You Are My XXXXX – Urata Naoya
Holy Crap, so, Urata is my bias from AAA (triple A, Attack All Around) released solo, that isn’t on itunes or anything, I just happened to see the teaser on twitter. Those who don’t know AAA, they are a 6 member group from Japan, that consists of 2 girls and 4 boys, that debuted in 2005. Anyways, I knew the title had XXXXX in it, but I had no idea it was gonna be lowkey sexy. Urata has such a unique voice and it fits this song and concept very well.
8. Sunset – Kim Dong Han
So JBJ’s Maknae has a solo! A very impressive Solo. He that some vibe Taemin gives off in his solos, not saying he’s like Taemin, just saying they have a very unique emotion when dancing. Its very sensual they way he dances, and the song fits perfectly with it. I’ve never listened to JBJ, but if this is the vibe him and his members are going to give off, I’ll give it a shot! It’s a very simple but visually pleasing MV.
7. #Cookie Jar – Red Velvet
This video was a little weird, but super cute. Some how the girls found a random jar of cookies buried in the forest, and thought “Hey lets eat these!” and on this weird magic sugar high they are on, they start to add random ingredients to their sweets, such as shoes. Well now eating those sweets they start getting random buttons, ants and shoelaces inside those sweets, so they destroy all the sweets and smash the now ant infested cookie jar. TBH I hate finding weird things in my food, so it was a little hard for me to watch them pull weird stuff out of cakes and cookies. I do enjoy that the colors of their outfits shift to black to pink. Red Velvet never fails to impress me with their songs, and how often they put them out. Also Congrats on the 1st Japanese Mini Album!
6. Something New – Taeyeon
I really enjoy MV that are half Black and White and half Color. As much as I miss Tae’s blonde hair, she looks amazing as always. It starts off with very random flashes of scenes and then Taeyeon crying, to stepping out of a car onto the red carpet. Then it goes to her being an assassin of sorts. Which usually there is a reason behind it, money, fame, revenge, but at the end Taeyeon throws her suitcases full of money and jewels while shooting them with a shot gun. Very odd but I dig it.
5. Take Me Higher – ACE
So I actually saw the Relay Dance of this before the MV, and I love the shorts haha. The dance on it’s own is fun and playful. The MV made me crack up a few times at them keeping a straight face while balls were flying at them. I like the bright colors and fun vibe of this MV a lot. Oh! Crop tops!
4. Our Page – SHINee
Grab your tissues cause this MV hurt me a lot. Now I know SHINee is on this list twice, and please know that I write all of these out of order according to what comes out first, Anyways… The Music Video shows the members going through training, filming shoots, making music, but all have this underlining want to not feel or be there. It cycles through feelings and with the lyrics together its honestly really emotional. So these lyrics the members wrote for JongHyun, and the album even includes a special track with JongHyun’s vocals included. “목소리 날아 너 있는 곳에 닿을 거란 걸 우린 알잖아” Our voices are flying, We know it’ll reach you wherever you are. SHINee will always continue to fly as 5
3. Shoot Me – DAY6
This is an amazing way to shine light onto verbal abuse. The lyrics say its easier to take a bullet than your harsh words. Verbal abuse can happen to anyone in any relationship, and from someone who has received verbal abuse, it honestly is hard to handle words that stick in your mind for a long time, and even DAY6 as idols, hearing harsh words constantly takes a toll on your well being.
2. 파블로프의 개 (Ft. Cold Bay, Basick) – RAVI
So I honestly thought Ravi was going to have a video for this, since he seems to enjoy them, but I don’t blame him. This is a Mixtape, and not technically a comeback, but its new music and that’s what matters to me. It’s a good sound to bounce to, I dig it. I appreciate Ravi’s efforts and how he goes to his friends for feedback. It takes a lot to produce a mixtape, and this being his 3rd one. You can defiantly feel and hear how far Ravi has come.
1. I Want You – SHINee
I want you to love this song as much as I do. I absolutely adore this concept, the edit, the fashion, the style of song. This is a great Summer Bop. It has this late 80s early 90s computer vaporwave look to the MV, and their old fashion look, but with a modern song, *perfect.gif* Its just perfect.
