From EDM and acapella to pop and hip-hop, their are countless amazing songs produced by K-Pop artists each year. Third generation K-pop girl groups are no different, having released massively popular music since their debuts as early as 2012. While all of them have multiple hit songs, only one stands out as truly legendary.
Here are 7 of the most legendary songs from 3rd generation girl groups everyone should know. And for all the songs that didn’t make the list, we still love you.
1. DDU-DU DDU-DU by BLACKPINK
“DDU-DU DDU-DU” is the title track of BLACKPINK‘s first mini-album, Square Up. The MV has currently racked up over a billion views on YouTube, and fans and fellow idols can’t get enough.
2. HIP by MAMAMOO
MAMAMOO’s “HIP” is a message to fans to value themself and live confidently rather than caring about what others think. The song is further complimented by the fierce and individualistic concept of the MV, that made fans gaga for the outfits of their favorite member.
3. TT by Twice
“TT” is the title track of Twice’s third mini-album, Twicecoaster. The song is an energetic pop song that mixes the girls’ bright smiles with addictive electropop. The steady beat of the song is meant to feel like the pounding of a girl’s heart when she first falls in love.
4. Hobgoblin by CLC
“Hobgoblin” is an EDM style song that signalled the group’s reinvention into a darker, more sexier image. The song was co-written by 4Minute’s HyunA and delivers a catchy uptempo beat with beautifully dramatized rap lines.
5. Heart Attack by AOA
AOA traded their signature style for electrop pop in this peppy track. “Heart Attack” not only includes fluttery vocals and athletic choreography (in live performances) but secured AOA their first music show win ever.
6. Bboom Bboom by MOMOLAND
This breakthrough sleeper hit went viral among fans and neitzens long after MOMOLAND’s scheduled promotionary period was over. With the catchy beat of the song and girls acting as infomercial saleswomen it’s no wonder the MV has over 500 million views.
7. Bad Boy by Red Velvet
“Bad Boy” is the title track of Red Velvet’s repackage album, The Perfect Red Velvet. The song showcases a sexy, sultry side of Red Velvet that fans aren’t used too. It’s no wonder “Bad Boy” is Red Velvet’s most watched MV on YouTube, with 327 million views to date.
