This week has ended on a high with classic songs and beloved groups returning to Spotify following the Kakao Entertainment dispute. Although some content was temporarily removed, there was still comebacks and debuts continuing to keep our playlists full for every occasion.
Here are some of the UKP Team’s favourites of the last seven days and a brief look into next week’s big releases.
This Week’s Top Picks
Two years after the first BLACKPINK solo from Jennie, we finally have Rosé taking the stage for her first single album. Both written in English, Gone & the title track, On The Ground have already stormed playlists and charts around the world since their release.
In a mere seven months, GHOST9 have churned out three mini-albums and the latest addition released this week is no different. Welcoming their newly named fans, Ghosties to the capital city of Seoul, the group has switched up to an EDM-Pop style complete with an addictive hook and a powerful performance on stage.
Next Week’s Ones to Watch
PENTAGON are embracing their inner webtoon protagonists for their up-coming comeback, Do Or Not. Following up from Daisy, the CUBE group seem to be bringing a fun, uplifting song that is perfect for Spring.
After the series of pre-debut tracks, RBW’s latest girl group PURPLE KISS are gearing up for their debut. Translated as “Poison” in Spanish, Ponzona was previously teased in the group’s introduction trailer and is now confirmed as the official title track for Into Violet, set to release on the 15th March.
