In a week full of big releases and collaborations, the spirit of Spring is returning just as restrictions begin to ease. Although it may still be Zoom gatherings and backdoor family “parties” for the time being, there is still a long list of comebacks and debuts to get us ready for the new season ahead.

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

In a collaboration with PUBG Mobile; Swedish DJ and producer, Alesso released a brand new single; Going Dumb to celebrate the game’s third anniversary. Two versions have been released featuring Chinese artist, CORSAK but the latest edition of the track includes the members of Stray Kids, performing in both English and Korean.

Following in the footsteps of MAMAMOO, VROMANCE, ONEUS & ONEWE; the latest girl group in RBW, PURPLE KISS has been catching the attention from domestic and international fans alike for their impressive debut, Ponzona.

Next Week’s Ones to Watch

Cheshire are counting down the days this week as Sorn announced her solo debut that is due to drop next week. Although members such as Yeeun have released songs through variety and survival shows, Run will be the first official solo song to come from CLC since their debut in 2015.
