B-Sides Christmas Special: Collabs
The best time of year is here! The holidays have officially begun, and I am constantly in my happy place. Yes, I am one of those super cheery, holiday-obsessed people who gets inexplicably happy during every holiday season. So of course, I will be featuring some of the best Christmas songs K-Pop has to offer, and this week features special group collabs!
“Perfect Christmas” - BigHit Artists
We’re kicking it off with baby-faced BTS members Jungkook and RM! BigHit Entertainment released a special collaboration song “Perfect Christmas” with the two BTS members, Jo Kwon, Im Junghee, and Joohee back in 2013. The song did not get much attention since BigHit was a very small agency at the time, and many other big agencies released the same kind of thing yearly. Regardless, Jungkook’s sweet vocals accompanied by Jo Kwon, Junghee, and Joohee make for a perfectly warm holiday classic.
“Special Christmas” - Cube Entertainment Artists
Get ready for this crazy collab list! Cube Entertainment artists BTOB, CLC, HyunA, PENTAGON, No Jihoon, and Hyunseung all featured on this 2016 track. Cube is known for releasing yearly holiday specials with their artists, having done so in previous years with former artists BEAST and 4Minute. It’s always a treat to hear all of the talented artists in one agency team up for a special holiday track.
“Christmas Day” - Starship Planet
The collective group of artists in Starship Entertainment release regular holiday tracks under the name Starship Planet. “Christmas Day” is the 2017 special release of Starship Planet, featuring artists K.Will, Soyou, BOYFRIEND, MONSTA X, WJSN, Mad Clown, Jeong Sewoon, and others who are listed in the beginning of the music video. The video is full of lots of cute and warm moments featuring oversized Christmas sweaters. What a great way to get in the Christmas spirit!
“This Christmas” - JYP Nation
Here comes JYP Nation! We’re hopping back to 2010 for “This Christmas,” featuring popular artists of the time 2AM, 2PM, miss A, and Wonder Girls—and yes, even JYP himself joined the group on the song. The track has a pop-like sound with a holiday twist. “This Christmas” was the last collaboration release from the artists of JYP Entertainment.
“니가 내려와” - Jellyfish Entertainment Artists
Pledis Entertainment groups NU’EST and Orange Caramel also joined the Christmas celebrations. “Dashing Through the Snow in High Heels” was released in 2012, attracting attention especially for its unique title in comparison to other collaboration releases. With the recent spike in interest for NU’EST, we couldn’t leave this traditional work of theirs off the list!
