I know what you’re thinking. It’s not the end of 2013 yet, right? Such lists always come out at the end of the year, comprising of all the good music that was released throughout the year.
But considering how much I love kpop, and how many good songs are coming out every new week, I couldn’t wait till the year-end.
So here it is. My playlist of the best dance songs (in no particular order) that came out this year, right from January to August 2013! These songs will have you grooving in no time 😀
- I Got A Boy – SNSD
These girls kicked off the year with a bang. A song consisting of good beats and nice singing, this song is a tough one to dance to, but very fun!
- Break Down – Super Junior M
Any kpop song list would be incomplete without Super Junior, and in this case, I’m talking about SJ-M! I totally love this one as well as the Chinese version!
- I Like 2 Party – Jay Park
Talk about dance and not mention Jay Park? How is that even possible!? So here it is. Jay Park’s latest offering of party music. If ya like to party, dance away!
- Expectation – Girl’s Day
Although I’m not a Girl’s day fan, this song’s beats caught my fancy. There’s no doubt that this song is addictive!
- This Love – SHINHWA
The legends of Kpop! This is an awesome song from start to finish.
- Growl – EXO
This song by EXO blew me away. If I wasn’t a fan of theirs before, I am now. Their synchronized dancing is amazing and so is the camera work in the video. Good job, SM!
- Do You Love Me – 2NE1
I am particularly partial to 2NE1, because their song helped me win the KPOP contest in 2012 😛 But really, this is a great song. I love it!
- Tarzan – Wonder Boyz
Now this is something new in kpop. Kpop and reggaeton! And they have merged the two genres beautifully. Super addictive!
- Incredible – XIA
Everybody knows that XIA Junsu is an amazing dancer (Seriously, Tarantallegra was friggin’ difficult!), and this song isn’t as dark as that, but a nice groovy song to make you tap your feet.
- Give It To Me – SISTAR
Apart from their outstanding vocals, SISTAR managed to show everyone why they rock the kpop scene every time they come back. Enjoy this moulin rouge-esq song from them!
- Smoky Girl – MBLAQ
This song by the suave and sexy boys of MBLAQ shows off their dancing skills to perfection.
- Wild – Nine Muses
I’ve enjoyed almost all songs that Nine Muses have released and this is one of them. Very catchy and the video looks stylish!
- U & I – Ailee
Powerhouse Kpop vocalist Ailee’s ‘U & I’ sounds like a Beyonce song but hey, it’s awesome! Love the lyrics too!
Hope you enjoyed these songs! Go ahead, pump up the volume and dance like nobody’s watching! 🙂
