TOP 16 OF 2016 🎶KOREAN R&B EDITION 🎤

Korean R&B is a genre that doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. And some of it is seriously lit. As promised, here are my top 16 Korean R&B jams of 2016.

*DISCLAIMER*

ALL THE TIME

16. TAEWAN__PROBLEM

Major Weekend vibes on this English track. Something about it makes me think of a rainy day..... and Flashdance.

15. THE STRAY FT KRIZ__짙어

So glad I stumbled across this gem. I'm in love with this entire album called Divide. If R&B is your swag, definitely give it a listen. The Stray is seriously overlooked.

14. BIG PIE FT CRUCIAL STAR__HER

I was pleasantly surprised by newcomer, Big Pie's self titled album as a whole and I love Crucial Star. He has this vulnerability in his voice that cuts thru all the bullshit. It really shines on this emotional track. Its technically a hip hop track but the R&B vibe was too strong IMHO.

13. MIND 182 FT JOHNATHAN LEVANT__I'M SORRY

This Korean producer puts out some solid R&B jams... I had this one on repeat until I knew all the words.

12. CHESKA FT TAKEONE__SWISH

DAAAAYYUMMM

11. LEE HI FT INCREDIVLE__OFFICIAL

ALL THE TIME

10. DUVV X KIDOH__RIDE

ALL OVER THIS TRACK.

9. CRUSH FT TAEYEON__DON'T FORGET

My sooonnnnnnn♥ I was in physical turmoil trying to pick one song by him to put on the list. His album, Wonderlust, is best appreciated as a whole so I went with this release.

8. CHANCELLOR FT DOK2__MURDA

RODEOI DESPISE THIS DAMN MUSIC VIDEO ON A MOLECULAR LEVEL

7. HOODY__LIKE YOU


7. HOODY__LIKE YOU

Our princess killed it this year. So proud of her♥ couldn't get enough of this song. If you get a chance to watch a live performance of this....she dances at the chorus and it's ♥

6. MELTEN__DON'T LEAVE ME

I'm a sucker for solo vocal and piano arrangements and this track is absolutely beautiful. Heart wrenching.... but beautiful nonetheless.

5. VINCENT__THINKING ABOUT

I sang praises about this song so much after it's release that I prolly made some people physically sick. The song itself is amazing.... But paired with the music video.... it's honestly so beautifully sad.

4. YOON MIRAE__JAMCOME ON BABY

QUEEN

3. DEAN FT GAEKO__D (HALF MOON)

If you know me.... you know I love this man and he was bound to be here. This album was life for a solid month.

2. JAY PARK__ME LIKE YUH

REPEAT FOREVER.

1. ELO FT JAY PARK__TATTOO

ELOOOOOOO♥ It seemed like I was waiting a freakin eternity for his album....... I love the whole thing but this songgggg. I love Elo's vocals.... His voice is so full and powerful. The way it contrasts with Jay's softer breathier high register. It's just good stuff.

So there you have it..... my Jay Park bias is showing. Deal with it. I have an everlasting adoration for that man lol.
