Social Share


BestieOkay-pop is suffering from acts who – for one cause or one other – didn’t get the total highlight they deserved. I’ve spent loads of time rating and reviewed the trade’s greatest artists, however these underrated acts ought to by no means be forgotten.

This function will check out disbanded teams and rank/charge their complete singles run, putting them within the pantheon of Okay-pop historical past.

First up is one in every of my private favorites… BESTie!

Profession timeline: 2013-2015

General sound: Effusive pop music with a deal with melody and vocals. They acquired many comparisons to Sistar and that feels very apt.

7. Zzang Christmas (ft. Yoo Sae Yoon) (2013)

It feels bizarre to kick this off with a Christmas tune, particularly this time of yr! However so far as seasonal choices go, Zzang Christmas is a spotlight. It’s enjoyable and sprightly and really in step with the remainder of their discography.

Score: 8.25

6. Excuse Me (2015)

I doubt BESTie anticipated this to be their swan tune. Excuse Me embraces the favored brass pattern of 2015 within the group’s personal type, delivering a whopper of a hook and perspective to spare.

Score: 8.75

5. Pitapat (2013)

The group debuted with a splash, heralded by the ultra-catchy “dugundugun” intro of this monitor. Pitapat has a bounding power that may barely be contained. I really like how the refrain pulls no punches. Not even misplaced autotune can mar its impact.

Score: 8.75

4. Sizzling Child (2014)

I stay for this type of summer-themed Okay-pop. BESTie’s indefatigable power relaxes a bit for Sizzling Child however climaxes in a rousing, roller-rink-ready refrain that makes good impact of backing vocals.

Score: 8.75

3. Love Choices (2013)

Simply pure Courageous Brothers produced goodness. The retro synths are completely scrumptious and the cyclical melodies have that trademark sound we all know and love. The refrain is deceptively catchy.

Score: 8.75

2. I Want You (2014)

That is most likely BESTie’s most profitable bid at a Sistar-style summer season traditional. The melodies are attractive and shimmering and the manufacturing bounds with an effusive sense of pleasure. Then now we have a superb melodic coda on the finish that switches issues up in anthemic trend.

Score: 9

1. Thank You Very A lot (2014)

That is the sort of pop refrain you need to shout from the rafters. The verses set it up properly, however Thank You Very A lot is all about its mammoth centerpiece. Duble Sidekick know methods to write a melody, and this one is so fleshed-out and multifaceted that it felt like an on the spot traditional from the very first hear.

Score: 9.25
