Weekly Charts: March 28 - April 3
April showers bring May flowers, and this week’s chart-topping releases bring the spring rain with tear jerking ballads. Opening this month in music are breathtaking ballads, touching tunes, and divine debuts.
SEIZE EVERY MOMENT
Jang Beomjun cherishes every waking second with “Every Moment with You,” released on March 21 off of his third studio album. The notable former frontman of Busker Busker welcomes the spring season with another heart-fluttering ballad as portrayed through different walks of life. Everyday mundane tasks consume so much time of our day that they seem to make any downtime easily fly by. The frustrated soloist shares his irritation of burning daylight through a cheerful melody, wishing time would freeze when spending time with loved ones to seize the special moments through the smallest gestures of love. Dominating the NAVER music chart at number one, Jang Beomjun inspires the hearts of families, friends, and lovers to create new moments by each other’s sides this season.
AN EXTENDED WINTER
EXO’s CHEN feels his heart wither away with “Beautiful Goodbye,” released on March 31 from his debut album, April, and a flower. While romance tends to bloom in the blossoming spring season, the somber singer still experiences the dead of winter in this melancholic ballad. Singing in a desolate field devoid of life, CHEN channels the power of nature and music to convey the raw emotion of his dying love. The new solo artist’s debut song climbs up Genie, MelOn, and Soribada at number two through its compassionate lyrics of an emotionally extended winter.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT US
Yoon Mirae opens up her wounded heart with “Don’t Forget Me,” released on March 29. The singer teams up with the indie duo Rocoberry in producing this heartbreaking single that recalls dreadful parting memories. At a loss for words and tears blurring her vision, her quaking can only be stilled by preserving the remains of her memories of past love. As pain overtakes her heart, holding on tightly to their fading history together is what gives some hope to move on. Taking the number two spot on Mnet, Yoon Mirae connects with detached hearts who wished for another eternity to relive their love once again.
