Another month, another heap of new releases (and some interesting collaborations too!).
We kickstarted July with a bunch of comebacks as there were 7 releases yesterday. Kim Jeong_uk of AUGUST 051 (and formerly of boy group 24K) released a new track titled ‘Rendezvous’. Korean-American singer AleXa dropped her new single ‘Xtra’ as part of her first single album ‘ReviveR’–the funky Pop tune also features an appearance from fellow singer BM of KARD. Boy group DONGKIZ released their title track ‘Crazy Night’ along with their 5th single album 'Chase Episode 1. GUUM', and Brave Girls made their comeback with ‘Pool Party’ featuring E-Chan of DKB.
KINGDOM, who debuted earlier this year with the release of their first mini album ‘History of Kingdom : PartⅠ. Arthur’, showcase an interesting sort of medieval, ‘kings and queens’ concept. Ko Yoon-young of GF Entertainment revealed in an interview that the seven idol “kings” represent the “seven kingdoms”, with the first album telling the story of Arthur. Their second mini album released yesterday ‘History of Kingdom : PartⅡ. Chiwoo’ tells us the story of Chiwoo.
CIX collaborated with Hui and Minit of Pentagon for the release of their digital single ‘Tesseract’, with ITZY opting to partner with Kim Shin Young on VIVO’s “How to Have a Good 2021”. The group worked with her alter ego, Second Aunt Kim Da Vi.
FM Entertainment revealed an interesting project earlier this year titled “M.O.N.T ARENA” which you can learn more about in the link below. Through this project, they are slated to release a collaboration sometime today between Roda of M.O.N.T and trainee Beomham (who is part of the ARENA project).
On July 4th we have a super sweet collaboration between rapper Loco and actress Lee Sung Kyung. The single ‘Love’ will be released through Dingo Music’s “Duet Mate”–a project in which actresses and rappers partner up to release a song together.
July 5th sees the comeback of DAY6 (Even of Day) with their song ‘Right Through Me’. Also on this day we see the release of Soyeon’s first mini album ‘Windy’–which will be her first solo comeback since her debut with (G)I-DLE. Boy group BXK will drop their first album following the release of their debut songs ‘Fly High’ and ‘NOYB’ from last year. SF9 are also releasing a new album titled ‘Turn Over’ as Kyuhyun of Super Junior releases his comeback single ‘Together’ aswell.
Yebin of DIA and girl group GIRLKIND both drop their digital releases on July 7th, with Moon Jong Up (formerly of B.A.P.) releasing his first mini album titled ‘US’ the following day. Worldwide sensation BTS are also slated for a comeback on July 9th.
Former 2NE1 member Minzy will be making her much-anticipated comeback on July 11th, with OnlyOneOf making their comeback a few days after.
With almost a two-week break giving us time to take in all the new comebacks and collaborations, pop-rock girl band Rockit Girl rounds of July with a new release on the 28th.
