Lockdown is slowly easing down, the temperature is rising and the Summer Rush is raging on with more big returns and surprise singles making their way into UKP’s Playlist. If you have missed any of this week’s comebacks; we have picked out five artists out of the long list of this week’s releases that have been making waves on music shows and charts.

Chungha has released her next single; “Play”, the second pre-release for her up-coming album. Embracing the summer concept, she has once again shown her abilities as an Idol; stepping away from the Vouge dance-hall style of “Stay Tonight” for a fresh Latin vibe that will have fans dancing and playing on repeat.

After a slight delay between album release and music video; Red Velvet has unveiled their first sub-unit since their 2014 debut. Teaming up leader Irene & vocalist Seulgi, the duo embrace their inner nightmares for the dark R’n’B track, “Monster”.

That is not the only sub-unit returning from SM Entertainment this week. After almost a year, EXO-SC is preparing for their comeback through pre-release singles, “Telephone”. Fans have also been treated with a solo from both Chanyeol & Sehun to prepare for the title track’s release on the 13th July.

SF9 were caught up in rumours that they would join the Road To Kingdom cast but FNC Entertainment confirmed that they were not featured. Regardless, the boys’ talents is shining bright with their latest comeback; donning both sleek Mafia suits and floral shirts to fit with the summer season. For more on SF9’s return, check out our latest album review on 9loryUS.

This week also saw a special single released to celebrate Teen Top’s ten year anniversary. The boys have included a special song titled “Pancake” to symbolise a celebratory treat for fans but currently, the group are doing special promotions of “To You”, a hit single once performed with the full line-up back in 2012 but now remade with Changjo taking over L.Joe’s original rap verse.
