WINNER Rises With Really Really; Soompi’s K-Pop Music Chart 2017, April Week 4

WINNER moves up from No. 8 to be the new No. 1 song on our chart this week with Really Really. This song won on Inkigayo and M!Countdown last week, and is their first chart topping hit since their 2014 debut song Empty. Congratulations to WINNER!

Girl’s Day’s I’ll be yours remains at No. 2 while Highlight’s Plz Don’t Be Sad, last week’s champion, drops two spots to No. 3.

There are three new songs in the top 10 this week. Debuting at No. 4 is IU’s Can’t Love You Anymore. This song is the second pre-released single from IU’s fourth studio album. It is an RB ballad featuring indie artist Oh Hyuk. IU has just released her fourth album Palette yesterday. The title song of the same name featuring G-Dragon was just released, so Can’t Love You Anymore may have a short stay on our chart.

IU’s Palette has become our new No. 1 song! This song wasn’t even on our chart last week, but with its promotion in full swing, it picked up three wins on music shows last week on Inkigayo, M!Countdown, and on the new Music Core chart ranking. Palette is the first song in more than three years to debut at No. 1 on our chart. Congratulations to IU!

Palette is one of the two title songs from IU’s fourth album. This self-written synth pop song by IU is about her own story growing up, with the lyrics about the beauty of youth. G-Dragon is featured on this song, making it a mega collaboration between superstars.

There are three new songs in the top 10 this week. Moving up 13 spots to No. 5 is indie band Hyukoh’s TOMBOY, which is one of the two title songs from their album 23. Ever since their breakout success on Infinite Challenge, Hyukoh and their lead singer Oh Hyuk have been able to cross over to mainstream K-pop. TOMBOY is a song that details their career so far, and the lyrics mention that they are still trying to find their direction in life.
