January '17 Playlist

Time flies! It's already the last day of January, which means I've successfully stuck to my blogging schedule for a whole month already (that's one thing on my resolution list that I've been doing well on, at least :p).

Today I want to try something new on my blog - at the end of every month, I'm going to compile all the music that I enjoyed and listened to a lot that month and write about it here. I know the year just started, but January was definitely a great month in terms of discovering new music that I liked! :)

NCT#127 LIMITLESS (album) - NCT127

Wow. WOW. I just can't find the words to explain how much I LOVED this album this month. If I wasn't already an NCT fan, I would have converted right after listening to this. All the songs are fantastic but the one that really stuck with me was Back 2 U (AM01:27). With its R&B vibe, great vocals (Jaehyun's voice in the opening and closing of the song.. I have goosebumps) and Mark & Taeyong's raps, it's definitely on my list of top favourite songs of all time.

Excuse Me - AOA

I honestly didn't expect to like this as much as I did :p I like AOA songs but I tend to get bored of them after a while.. but that wasn't the case with Excuse Me. I think it's super catchy and the choreography is great (not to mention the fact that Kwak Dongyeon is featured in the music video :B).

That's My Girl - Fifth Harmony

I'm not really in the loop when it comes to English songs so it kind of shocked me when I heard this song on the radio because it was SO GOOD. I like Fifth Harmony but at the time I hadn't listened to their last album yet so I didn't know about this one. That's My Girl makes me feel so empowered (which is the main theme of the song anyway) and I love listening to it when I work out :')

CRYSTYLE (album) - CLC

Another fantastic album! I like CLC quite a bit (their promotions always overlapped with JJCC's so I would always see them at music shows) but I think this concept change was a great idea on Cube's part. Hyuna actually helped compose and write lyrics for a couple of the songs so they do give off a very 4Minute vibe but in the end they're all unique and I hope this helps CLC find their overall sound and style. My favourite songs on the album are definitely Liar, MeowMeow and Depression (Tears Bottle).

Castle On The Hill, Shape Of You - Ed Sheeran

No words needed. I like all of Ed Sheeran's releases and these two songs are no different :) It took me longer than it should have to realize that Shape Of You was one of the Snapchat filter songs!

Puzzle - Cjamm, BewhY

I've been slowly getting into K-hiphop recently, and I've been really into this song in particular. The chorus always gets me hyped up (lmao) and it's definitely my favourite to listen to while I'm getting ready. I think I like Cjamm more than BewhY LOL but both of their rapping styles are great.

April Story - APRIL

I LOVE this song! I'm so glad DSP decided to add Chaekyung and Rachel to APRIL because I feel like they're the perfect additions to the already sweet and youthful group, and I really like the fairytale vibes in this song.

Downpour - I.O.I

I'M CRYING. I'M CRYING SO HARD T_____T This was I.O.I's final release before they officially disbanded on the 29th (I talk about I.O.I and why they disbanded here) and while I still think they didn't get the promotion they truly deserved, this song is beautiful and it's a perfect ending for them. I can't wait for their future reunion (even though it's still 5 years away.. sigh).

Rukawa - BIGONE

I'm sure all of you know my love for Kim Daeil by now and while his status as a 24K member may be up in the air at the moment, he's been releasing solo stuff recently and I'm loving it. He's a fantastic dancer and I've always preferred his rapping style in 24K so it's a given that I would love his solo work!

Still - Loco (ft. Crush)

I think Loco and Crush are a wonderful combination (sorry Zion. T!) and Still is such a nice, chill song - it's been my favourite soundtrack for long car rides.

That sums up my playlist for this month! There was a lot more originally, but I decided to cut it down before it got too long -_-;; What have you been listening to recently?
