It's been an insane week here at SBS PopAsia HQ this week with both 4Minute and Eat your Kimchi co-hosting shows and a whole lot of cake being consumed - it's surprising we had time to suss out what music has been churning up the Asian charts a all. But we're glad we found it with these tasty new tracks being released! G-Dragon is the star of the list after all... Here are three highlights we’ve added to the SBS PopAsia playlist this week:
G-Dragon - "Coup D'etat"
After hearing only Part 1 of the Bigbang boy's new album "Coup D'etat" we were hooked. After very little deliberation we decided we had to add both of his new singles: "Coup D'etat" and "Crooked". The title track "Coup D'etat" is supposedly G-Dragon's boldly annoucing his differentaition from what we might expect of him - and it does sound different! The reason most likely being that he collaborated with Diplo and Baauer on the track. See if you dig his new dish...
G-Dragon - "Crooked"
Do you recognise where this video is shot? It's in the hip London suburb of Shoreditch. And as if you wouldn't get into a club wearing a smiley-face coat like that? #pfft
Kara - "Damaged Lady"
These lovely, now damaged ladies have been spending a lot of time in Japan of late performing & practicing, so they're been off our radar of late. But the 5-piece are back with this hot new track... so hot someone had to turn the sprinklers on it at the end! :P
Spica - "Tonight"
"Tonight" is the first new taste of what we imagine to be a forthcoming album (although no information has been officially released) from k-pop glamours, SPICA. The last we heard from them was all the way back in 2012 with the release of their "Lonely" EP - and as we know in k-pop years - that's time enough worthy of a comeback! Let's home this song is the kick-off...
