Congratulations to Sistar’s Loving U! This was a slightly tighter race than I’d anticipated, but the song scored an easy victory with 64.7% of the vote.
Next up, we have a duel between two tracks with quite opposite charms. It’s BLACKPINK‘s 2017 hit As If It’s Your Last versus Golden Child’s Let Me, which came out one year later.
In some ways, these songs both subvert expectations. Even with their “pink” concept, BLACKPINK prove to be edgier than many 2017-era girl groups. Meanwhile, Golden Child forgo dark, broody boy band tropes for a lighter, more refreshing summer sound.
But, only one song can move onto the next round. The choice is up to all of you. Feel free to advocate, cheerlead, cut deals, etc in the comments section!
The vote is open for twenty-four hours, and the winner will be celebrated in tomorrow’s bracket post.
Candidate One: BLACKPINK – As If It’s Your Last
Candidate Two: Golden Child – Let Me
