Western and J Pop Songs/Concepts Kpop Artist Should Try

This list will be filled with Western and other international songs I think would be perfect for a kpop artist or group to sing.


Victoria Monét – New Love > Minzy

New Love is a simple R&B love song that I think would fit Minzy’s style and vocal range  very well.


St. Beauty – Not Discuss It > Red Velvet

Now hear me out, Red Velvet is always reinventing themselves through their RED n VELVET concepts. And I think “Not Discuss It” has a nice balance of hip hop mixed with R&B, that would make a perfect addition to RV’s Velvet discography.


Kiana Ledé – Fairplay (Acoustic) > Hyolyn

Now I know Hyolyn has released some amazing ballads before, but I’d love to see her sing a song that’s as stripped down and savage as Kiana Lede’s Fairplay.


Eric Nam > Daniel Caesar  – Get You


We already heard Eric dip his hand into the R&B world with his colab with Gallant and Tablo for Cave Me In. But I’d love to see him explore this side of music just a bit more. And I think Daniel’s Get You would match Eric’s voice well.


 NCT Dream > Left To Right – Marteen

NCT Dream is slowly starting to mature, and I think if they released a song like Left To Right. It would be the perfect transition track into older concepts.


KARD > Fiima – No.1

I would love for Kard to take a break from their tropical house tracks, and try to out a little something different. A track like Fiima’s NO 1 would be a small but nice change up for the group.


Twice’s fandom isn’t too fond of change. But I think if they released something like Faky’s Suga Sweet it would not only make the boy fans happy, but also the girl crush ones as well.
