Flashback Friday

Hi everyone! Last night my therapist gave me a belated birthday cake and it’s one of those grocery store cakes and I FUCKING LOVE cheap grocery store sheet cakes so I’m looking forward to demolish it after work tonight. Anywhos, every week I go through the charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then, I choose two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. Today, let’s see what topped the charts for the 5th week in September, 2011. Some strong female vocals dominate the chart this week.


#3 ALi “I’ll Be Dammed”
I haven’t heard this in a long time! It’s such a great song, and her vocals are absolutely amazing. I like her better as a blonde rather than the brunette she’s rocking now.

The Unit holds first recording: Welcome to the nugu Party!

Today was the first live audition for "The Unit", with tons of nugus joining the show. Check if your fave made it onto the show behind the cut! But first, some general information:



Sunmi was not there so it looks like she's not a mentor after all.

Apparently there's "point" values for The Unit. If a mentor doesn't "select" you, you can still pass to next round with over 90 points? Also, apparently the live auditions were not fun at all, to the point where this specific audience member wanted to go home. There haven't been any idols who have already done their auditions who are particularly good yet. Taemin has been giving all of the idol auditionees on The Unit very detailed advice. Some idol members scheduled to appear today (29th) were re-scheduled to the 30th. Also they could only film to 5:30pm b/c mentor's schedules.

Live audience members at The Unit auditions could've been fined up to 100 million won if they leaked contents.

K.A.R.D. is Headed For Worldwide Success (Forbes said so)



By Emily Blake

This summer has been a rather atypical one on the music charts. While the Song of the Summer has historically been an English-language track, this year, just about everyone seems to agree that the winner was Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," the most successful mostly Spanish-language single since "Macarena" in 1995. And just this week, charts darling Taylor Swift was knocked off her Billboard Hot 100 throne by a total newcomer in Bronx rapper/reality TV star Cardi B.

And now there seems to be another player shaking up U.S. charts: K-pop.

The agency has confirmed that members Sangdo, Xero, B-Joo, Yano, and Hojoon will be competing on the show. They stated that the five members are preparing for a “fresh start.”

Member A-Tom (Kim Sang Gyun) recently appeared on “Produce 101 Season 2” and is currently preparing to debut with JBJ, a group of eliminated trainees from the show that will be putting out their first release on October 18. Hunus Entertainment has stated that his future activities will be discussed once JBJ’s promotions are over and he returns to the agency.

Following promotions for their full album “First Street,” Hansol stated his desire to leave the group, and he has moved out of their dorms. He’s planning to enlist in the military, and his future course will be discussed once he’s discharged.

Leader P-Goon is also planning to enlist in the military, and there are currently discussions about him becoming an actor after his discharge.

The agency stated that they respect Nakta’s desire to take on solo activities in electronica, and so they agreed to cancel his exclusive contract. They asked fans to send their encouragement and support as it was a decision made based on his careful choice.

Hunus Entertainment said that the decisions were made after much time and discussion, and that the agency had decided to respect the choices of the members. They also apologized to fans for posting the notice late, and explained that they were doing so now after careful consideration befitting the importance of the matter.

Lastly, they asked fans to continue supporting the members as they each embark on their own activities.

Omona original - 5 girl group songs about pretty people problems

wg16


Girl group topics tends to hover around the same things - wanting a guy, moving on from a guy, having good times - that in the wrong hands can be derivative but one of my favorite categories is sugary sweet confection songs about personal beauty & the problems it causes. Here are a few examples that I can remember of how different girl groups tackled the same harsh subject manner.

On September 29, KBS sat down with BTS backstage after their rehearsals for “Music Bank.” During the interview, Jimin said that the achievements made by their their new mini album “Love Yourself: Her” on Billboard were things they could never have predicted.

“When we saw the charts, we were all so shocked,” he said. ”It was something we’d only ever dreamed of before, ever since our debut, so we were so happy.” Jimin added, “I really want to thank the fans who love us.”

Rap Monster commented that they didn’t achieve the results on Billboard’s Hot 100 or the United Kingdom’s Official Charts on their own. “It was possible because of the hard work of our fans all over the world,” he said.
