Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! Every week I check out the charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’re going back to the 2nd week of January, 2015. All the songs have been posted once before, so this time we’ll see some comeback stages.

#3 Noel “Your Voice”

I played this a few times, and it still doesn’t sound familiar to me. They sound good though, as expected from Noel. This was one of the songs off of their “Invisible Things” EP.

#2 EXID “Up & Down”
We all know the story…after a Hani fancam became viral months after the song’s release (almost 31 million views now), both the song and the group would blow up big. They started promoting the song again, hitting #1 on the charts and getting their first ever music show win just after the new year. Here’s their comeback stage, just a day after the song’s initial release back in August 2014.

#1 Mad Clown featuring Jinsil “Fire”
I remember this song mainly because of the MV. It featured EXID’s Hani, who was everywhere (like, foreals EVERYWHERE) at the time because of “Up & Down”. The song itself features the vocals of Mad Soul Child’s Jinsil. It would be his first #1 song since his collab with Soyou, “Stupid In Love”.

Honorable Mentions

#5 Jonghyun “Deja Boo”
Out of all the Shinee solos, Jonghyun’s were always my favorite. And this is my most favorite of his songs. I love love love love this song so much. It just always sounds so good, no matter what mood I’m in. The song would reach #1, and this pre-release would later be included in Jonghyun’s solo debut EP, “Base”.

#6 Apink “LUV”
In addition to giving the group their first triple crowns wins, this song would give them a total of 17 music show wins, the highest number of girl group wins for a single song. I feel like I remember they promoted this for a long time, and I guess that makes sense since it was released in November of the previous year and was still in the top ten in January. Ooh that first shot of Naeun at :17, so pretty!
