April is slowly coming to a close and as the Summer begins, there is more than just the hot weather and the hope of social events to look forward to. The fabled “Summer Rush” of comebacks is slowly approaching and it may be happening sooner than fans may think as big names are starting to make their return this week. As always, the Release Round Up have collected a full list of debuts, comebacks & drama soundtracks so you don’t miss out on the biggest songs of the week.

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

Following up from their debut in October, P1HARMONY are back with their first official comeback. Media outlets have been giving multiple positive comments on “Scared”; aggressive, melodic, cooking music from Breath of the Wild?!  Regardless of the reviews, there is one thing that is agreed on; P1HARMONY is a hip-hop/R’n’B group that is one to watch.

This week saw the highly anticipated episode that brought classic cover performances in Queendom; the RE:BORN challenge. This time, it is the turn of this year’s Kingdom cast; which saw SF9 perform a seductive film-noir rendition of “The Stealer” and The Boyz channel the Red Wedding for “O Sole Mio”. Both songs have now seen their studio release but eager fans may have to wait a little longer for the next official collection of covers; including iKON’s “Inception”, ATEEZ’s “Rhythm Ta”, Stray Kids’ “I’ll Be Your Man” & BTOB’s “Back Door”.

Next Week’s Ones to Watch

It is almost time to join the Carnival as ENHYPEN is making their return on the 26th April. From previous teasers & previews, “Drunk-Dazed” will be an up-tempo EDM track, channelling a youthful image that is intertwined the horror concept introduced in their debut, “Given-Taken”.
