B2ST’s release of their brand new ballad “I Knew It” was met with yet another explosive response, reminiscent of their success with their previous ballad hit “On Rainy Days”. While the songs’ musical composition as well as the boys’ vocal talents are without a doubt credible for the ballads’ magic, analysts have pondered why B2ST’s ballads chart significantly higher than their title tracks.
“I Knew It” was released on January 25th, and the song was an all-kill on a majority of mainstream music charts. Not only did the song enter the top spot from day one, it held the number one position for 3 days.
The most surprising part about the song’s success isn’t the longevity or its quick rise to the top ten spot. Rather, it’s the fact that the song was able to grab the top spot despite the fact that B2ST is currently not doing any television promotions for any albums whatsoever.
One may say that B2ST’s large fandom is the obvious reason for the success. However, given the fact that the song’s success was met in just three days, and with a ballad song at that, fans and netizens marveled at B2ST’s ability to capture the top spot with not only dance numbers, but with songs of other genres as well.
After releasing the teaser for his new song, “When I Can’t Sing“, earlier this evening, Se7en continued to roll out his promotions by unveiling the full tracklist for his new album!
On January 29th, Se7en tweeted an image containing the names of all six tracks on his mini-album. The names of the tracks are:
01. “Somebody Else”
03. “When I Can’t Sing”
04. “That Person”
06. “Make Good Love”
Considering how the text for “When I Can’t Sing” was highlighted in white, it’s more than likely that this J.Y. Park-produced track will be Se7en’s main song.
Big Bang’s Daesung appears on ‘K-Pop Star’, pointed but thoughtful
Big Bang member Daesung appeared on a variety show after a long while away.
On the January 29th installment of SBS’s ‘K-Pop Star’, the YG training system was revealed with the casting audition finals coming up. The contestants attended the monthly evaluations.
Those who set out as the judges next to Yang Hyun Suk were 2NE1′s Park Bom & CL, and Big Bang’s Taeyang & Daesung. After the car accident last year, Daesung had been taking time for introspection. Recently Daesung has started working through MBN’s ‘What’s Up’ and Big Bang is about to make their comeback but it has been a long while since his appearance on a variety show.
