Since the start of The Bias List in January 2016, I’ve always looked back at my three favorite title tracks by K-pop artists each month. Now, it’s time to look even further into the past, one month at a time. And, yes, the top three rankings count toward The Bias List’s personal artist scorecard!
September 2010 Overall Thoughts
As September can sometimes be, September of 2010 was pretty sparse on releases. Luckily, the comebacks that did happen were quite strong.
The month was dominated by YG’s 2NE1, who released their first full album with a three day blitz of title tracks. YG used to do this quite often, and I kind of miss having an entire week of new releases from one artist. For me, the quality of these singles varied, but Can’t Nobody remains one of the group’s defining works.
My favorite release from this month is Beast’s Breath. This was actually one of the very first K-pop tracks that caught my interest. I don’t listen to it all that much these days, but that electro breakdown is still iconic. What a timeless jam!
September also delivered solid follow-ups from BoA, Miss A and a quick comeback from Son Dam Bi. It marked the (pre) debut of the underrated Co-Ed School, who paved the way for other mixed gender groups like KARD and Checkmate, along with the full debut of rapper San E.
