Intro to B1A4: Kpop Retrospective

B1A4 are a five-member boy group who made their debut in April of 2011 with WM Entertainment. Depending on when you ask me, they’d fall between two and four on my personal bias list. They have a unique, energetic, poppy sound that really feels different to every other group out there. Much of this is down to leader Jinyoung, who has composed and produced almost all of their material since 2012. I firmly believe that he is one of the most gifted pop composers around right now, and doesn’t get nearly enough credit for it.

In particular, the singles run from Baby Good Night in 2012 to Solo Day in 2014 is one of the strongest grouping of title tracks in modern kpop. Baby Good Night remains their highest digital seller, while Lonely is their highest charting track.

As far as my favorite title track? It would have to be between Lonely and What’s Happening. Very different sounding songs, and hard to compare, but both classics.
