I was this close to voting for BEcause but decided at the very last second to follow my heart and vote for Alldaylong instead. I like BEcause but Alldaylong is definitely my favourite song from the [Summer Holiday] mini album so yeah. JiU cowrote and co-composed Alldaylong with Ollounder, one of Dreamcatcher's long time collaborators. And yes, I am obsessed! I could listen to this for hours, y'all! It's that good. I really hope Dreamcatcher goes out of their comfort zone more because stuff like Alldaylong prove that they are definitely capable of so much better!

Rocket Punch are back after two months with their new Japanese single, Bubble Up! I think this is really cute and fun! I don't think it's as great as Ring Ring but it's definitely a solid addition to Rocket Punch's discography. Rocket Punch actually released a Japanese mini album this August also called Bubble Up! so make sure to check that out as well.

FFFFFF the way some of us thought D.O. would slay the competition this month only for his single, Rose, to not even make the top 15... let alone top 10... bye! I definitely get the Jason Mraz comparison (thanks for that @soratami kii) especially with the production. But Mr. Mraz can only wish he has D.O.'s honey vocals. Did I ever tell y'all I had a Jason Mraz stanning phase for, like, half a year ffffff. I know; not one of my proudest moments. Anyway, I hated Rose on my first few listens but I must admit it has grown on me so much these days as well.

nikkysan: The song kinda isn't it but D.O.'s voice still makes me melt so have a point.

Wait I thought I voted for this.............. scream! I'm so sorry, Soyeon! Beam Beam is Soyeon's new solo single taken from her first mini album, Windy. And I honestly really dig this. I love how it sounds NOTHING like (G)I-DLE's music. And I love that it isn't a cringeworthy mess. It's just a fun little ditty with a stomping chorus. I agree with @thommyh that the electric guitar use is such an inspired choice.

thommyh: ik this song is kind of floppy, but the chorus + electric guitar mixture is top tier

So happy for you @RUNAWAY unnie as your boys Colde and Baekhyun make quite the splash on our chart! Good for them! Really dig the vocals here. And I love the contrast between Colde's harsher vocals to Baekhyun's more polished vocals.

Our first result for tonight is Miss Yukika's collaboration with Canadian DJ/producer Pat Lok, The Moment. Can I just say it's so refreshing to hear Yukika on a production like this??? Good for her for stepping out of her city pop comfort zone. I was sad to remove this from my ballot but I'm glad it still did really well on our chart even without my support.

Ugh, I thought AKMU could've gotten two spots in the top 10 but apparently not ffffff. But that's okay! Top 14 is still iconique for a non-single like Hey Kid, Close Your Eyes. I just find this so haunting and poetic. The production... Chan-hyuk once again proving he's the best producer in YG Entertainment. And the vocals... Lee Sun Hee was an excellent choice for this kind of song. I love, love, love this so much!

And our highest charting Perfect World album track is Good at Love. I'll be honest; I'm not sure if I like this or not. But I will say that the second verse sung by Jihyo is a discography highlight. Kween of pop!

That After School reign just won't let up! Debuting on our song chart is their immaculate Japanese single, Shh, taken from the album Dress to Kill. This has not aged a day, fuck. It still sounds like... the future. This is a strong contender for my 11 in the upcoming After School Rate which opens on September 6th! #promo

And our highest charting album track this month is none other than Dreamcatcher's Whistle. Congrats to @Crisp X unnie for a successful campaign! I do agree that Whistle sounds like a single... a summer single specifically. And it still sounds very Dreamcatcher which is great! This also gives me major country music vibes which is... not something I thought I'd ever hear from Dreamcatcher sdgfhsgdfjhsd. But I love it for that!

Sorry to @He unnie but we won't be crowning AKMU as KPJC winners this time. NAKKA is the lead single AKMU's new album, Next Episode, and it's a duet with Kween of MelOn Chart IU. This actually wasn't a love at first listen kind of song for me. I was (and still am) obsessed with Hey Kid, Close Your Eyes that I didn't really give this the time of day ffffff. But I love this wholeheartedly now. The production... ugh, Chanhyuk is on another levuhl with this one. And I love how this sounds NOTHING like any other song AKMU released before.

I would've loved to see this in the top 5 but alas, it just wasn't meant to be. Still, what a fucking bop this is! I have now accepted that Huening Kai is the best vocalist of Big Hit Music (love u still my Taehyun). The way he starts the chorus....... I stan! TXT are coming back on August 17th with the repackage album, The Chaos Chapter: Fight or Escape, featuring the single LOSER=LOVER. Let's support those as well.

Nawt Jinyoung releasing the best post-GOT7 solo single out of nowhere! King of Pop! I really thought Jinyoung has retired as a singer already and honestly, I have already accepted it fffff. But oppa came through with Dive and you know what? It's perfect. I'm obsessed with it. I cannot get enough of it. Jinyoung has now given me hope that one day he'll release a solo album too. Please bless us once more with your beautiful music, oppa!!! I will be waiting!

Glitterizer: I didn't expect to love this, but it's amazing. The perfect type of beachy, sunset-y song.

nikkysan: Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before, unafraid to reference or not reference, put it in a blender, shit on it, vomit on it, eat it, give birth to it. (SOL: PERIOD!)
