Is is just me or is it truly getting hot in here? Prepare your meltdowns, my sweet coconuts. --- 7 STAY BLACKPINK from the Square Two mini-album YG Entertainment 38 POINTS Last Month's Rank: N/A Voters: 8 - @Alouder98 7 - @Mikl C 6 - @Aries, @ThisIsRogue 5 - @Slice of Life 4 - @McQueer 2 - @ryan_riot92 That BLACKPINK reign... okay, I'll stop. Boombayah may have already left our charts after only one month but trust BLACKPINK to come back with another song. This time the girls slow it down and sing about... felonies? What the hell, Teddy. Okay, but I must say rhyming melody and felony is a work of genius. Kudos. This sounds like a YG Entertainment ballad for better or for worse. It sounds lush and expensive, but you also get the feeling that you've heard this already. I still love this despite all that but originality isn't one of the song's strengths. This almost made the Top 5 but the last few voters totally gave it the cold shoulder. Rude. For a track that got significant support, only one gave this a commentary. @ryan_riot92, the stage is yours. I was dreading this song because I knew it would be a typical YG ballad that’s not really good, but I love it! The playful chorus with the hand claps and the harmonica give it a lovely character and makes it stand out to all the other turds from YG’s back catalog. Agreed. The hand claps and harmonica gave this a much needed depth and personality. --- Which song didn't quite reach the Top 5? 6 DON'T BELIEVE Berry Good from the Glory mini-album Asia Bridge Entertainment 40 POINTS Last Month's Ranking: N/A Voters: 10 - @LightningRider 8 - @junglefish 7 - @ryan_riot92 4 - @Squashua, @NathanJ, @Capitan 3 - @roux Berry Good once again storms through the competition and find themselves just a spot outside the Top 5. For a nugu group, that is very, very, very remarkable. It also helps that the song in question is a BOP. It's very tropical but not that Justin Bieber nonsense. This is rather emotional and the girls totally give it their all in acting out those emotions in the music video. And speaking of the music video, ooh la la, it's rocking! I mean, sure, maybe the budget isn't quite Big 3 level but that's hardly noticeable. This has Digipedi written all over it but I'm not sure if those guys actually worked on this. Really good stuff. We have a lot of commentary for this so let's start it now. 10-point giver @junglefish, please start this one. Sorry BLACK PINK, Berry Good did it better... Ooh, the claws are coming out. YUM. @ryan_riot92, I know you're dying to speak. Go on. I loved Berry Good when they came out with “Love Letters” and fell flat for awhile. Then they put a spin on their image with “Angel” and I felt some promise coming from them. THEN ALONG CAME THIS JAM!! If they stick with this kind of sound and image, I’ll punch my stan card now! The stage outfits are awesome too! FANTASTIC! You are truly a nugu expert. Another nugu advocate, @Squashua, please speak your mind. Controversial alert: this replaced Playing With Fire in my top 10. BYE-G in your area. Why? One because i'm a notable nugu-flop charity donator & BlackPink is going to siphon up votes anyway. Two this does everything Playing With Fire was going for but ultimately with less of the try-hard factor that creeps in on the sly. It's a bop and a half, really current and catchy with a low-budget video filled with "what do we have in the props cupboard?" moments. Yuna from AOA's sister is here too so that's nice. Give me a cocktail pitcher of Berry-trop-pop ladies. Ooh, more claws. I NEED MORE THOUGH. @Capitan, are you gonna deliver or nah? I would've rated this song higher but I can't with English monologues at the beginning of songs. Still worth a top 10 mention though! N N N N true. The English monologues are so... eek. @roux, speak your mind too, boo, por favor. If only Playing With Fire hadn't been released 5 minutes before this was because they're incredibly alike in some ways. It's a big risk they've taken - completely departing from their previous sound and look, but it's paid off (at least in terms of quality - the quantity I'm not so sure about). My only hope for them in the future is that they carry on giving the new girl as few lines as possible and leaving it to the others who are mostly way above the average girl group member when it comes to talent. Oop, another passive aggressive comment? Well, that's a surprise. Kii. --- I BELIEVE THE TOP 5 SONGS ALL DESERVE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL POSTS SO LET ME DO JUST THAT. KEKEKEKE.
