May is drawing to a close but the month is still providing highly anticipated tracks as the fabled Summer Rush officially begins. More hits are still to come before June arrives but this week saw major comebacks to start the season with a bang; with certain artists trending in the UK and beyond. 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

Ahead of his military service, Taemin is leaving some firm Advice to careless listeners and a visual treat for fans to enjoy. Mixing dramatic R’n’B sounds, powerful choreography and an androgynous style; this comeback is a culmination of all that the SHINee member has to offer and cements him as an artist in his own right.

It’s time to log into the world of KWANGYA and level up with SM Entertainment’s upcoming girl group, aespa. Previously known as A$ton Wyld’s soundtrack from “Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw”, Next Level was remade to showcase the girls’ talents and also the overall concept of the SM Culture Universe.

They were shining through the city with a little funk & soul, now they are smooth like Butter. BTS is back with their second English single and it is already taking the world by storm; topping iTunes charts around the world and trending in the UK before their One Show appearance on Monday (24th May).

Next Week’s Ones to Watch

Seventeen is kicking their June comeback up a notch with a digital single; featuring Lee Hi & the Hip-Hop unit’s Wonwoo & Mingyu. No details have been revealed for when the full group will return but Carats can anticipate the duo’s special track, Bitter Sweet on the 28th May.
