8. ASTRO – “Baby”
Speaking of older releases, this one is approaching five years old (time flies!), and is still every bit as refreshing as the day it dropped. It’s got an almost video game-esque sound underneath ASTRO’s fantastic vocals and energetic rap, and the wildly colorful music video is just icing on the cake.
9. TWICE – “Signal”
“Signal” is definitely one of TWICE’s most unique tracks, both in terms of style and sound. The music video is a little out-there, with a green extraterrestrial and a plot twist that’s pretty memorable. Music video aside, though, the song is some good light-hearted fun with a super catchy tagline.
10. TXT – “Cat and Dog”
This was an adventurous track to include for TXT’s debut album, but the risk paid off! This song experienced a social media renaissance recently, and the peppy melody combined with the iconic rap section proves to hold a lot of appeal for fans. It’s weird and wacky, but it’s just so much fun!
11. Red Velvet – “Red Flavor”
Red Velvet has a lot of high-energy tracks released under the brighter “red” side of their concept, so they always bring the right vibes to a summer classic like “Red Flavor.” Tracks like this can be hard to pull off, but these ladies make it look easy with their sweet-sounding voices and bouncy rap style.
12. BTS – “Go Go”
It’s not often that BTS brings a silly song like “Go Go” to an album, but it’s always fun when they do! This one’s about going all-out, and the members definitely did. The underlying flute melody that ties the track together along with the don’t-care attitude of the vocal and rap sections make this one amazing – and the performance is just too cute!
