BoA’s # 1 song is best K-pop song of all time, according to music industry experts, Entertainment News & Top Stories
SEOUL – Queen of K-pop BoA’s # 1 song lives up to its title.
In a ranking of South Korea’s largest music streaming service, Melon, the 2002 hit was the best K-pop song since the genre rose to prominence 30 years ago.
Melon enlisted the help of 35 music critics and industry experts, who were asked to come up with a list of what they considered to be the 100 best K-pop songs of all time.
They based their selections on four criteria: importance (such as its contribution to K-pop and its international reach), success, artistic quality and performance.
The 35 lists were then used to create Melon’s list of Top 100 K-pop Songs.
Boy group Exo’s Growl (2013) came second and third on Psy’s viral 2012 hit, Gangnam Style.
BoA, who recently celebrated 21 years in the music business, made another appearance at No.93 with Atlantis Princess.
Mega boy group BTS were the most popular artists on the list, with five songs selected, including their English debut song Dynamite (# 4) and Blood Sweat & Tears (# 25).
Girl group Girls’ Generation had four songs on the roster, including Gee (# 5) and Into The New World (# 6).
Other popular groups such as BigBang, Red Velvet, Shinee, and NCT had multiple entries on the roster, although surprisingly best girl group Blackpink only had one song that made it – their mega hit Ddu-du Ddu-du arrived at n ° 13.
