Wrapping up the third week of December, this week’s charts cater to listeners’ romantic needs during this winter season. Sprinkle your holiday season with smooth R&B, sentimental ballads, or sensuous dance tracks to heat up your winter playlist.
LOVE AT FIRST SNOW
HEIZE transforms into an ice enchantress in a winter wonderland with “First Sight,” released on December 14. Amidst the warming ballads and jolly anthems this season, the artist’s latest track sends smooth jazz and R&B vibes to listeners with romantic lyrics inspired by her love for Olaf from Disney’s Frozen. Her lover’s feelings as unpredictable as the weather, the enamored singer hopes that their ice-cold facade thaws in due time. Topping charts like Genie and Soribada at number one, HEIZE reminds us that even the most frigid people are worth melting for.
THIRSTY FOR LOVE
EXO is drunk in love with “Love Shot” from their fifth repackaged album, released on December 13. This is a slow-tempo sensuous track where the eight members get in touch with their passionate sides, seeking to quench their burning desires. Parched for love, the boys desire to fill themselves up a shot glass to drown themselves in sweet memories. Currently number one on NAVER and number three on MelOn, pour yourself a glass to this intoxicating track.
LOSS FOR WORDS
Paul Kim feels conflicted by heartbreak with “Inexplicable,” released on December 16 from the web drama WHY OST Part 3. The ballad singer shares the contradictions when facing the cruel realities of final goodbyes to lovers. His mind and his heart are both at battle for his senses, unable to make sense of his new life alone as he holds on to dear memories, hoping his loved one will someday return. Taking the number one spot on Bugs!, “Inexplicable” takes the words right out of the mouth of listeners with lonely hearts.
