    Oh My Girl's seventh mini-album, Nonstop, was released on April 27 and I've had its title track, also titled "Nonstop," on blast ever since!

    The song is an upbeat anthem that makes me very excited for summer, and its unique music video experiments with multiple artistic stylings that see Oh My Girl living in a pastel-colored vaporwave dreamscape, an old western film, and later on as adorable board game figures.

    Earlier this week, Oh My Girl were in the middle of their album showcase when they discovered they were #1 on the Korean music platform Melon and their reactions were absolutely adorable. Stan Oh My Girl, you guys!

    This week also saw the release of NCT Dream's "Ridin," GWSN's "Bazooka," and Chungha's single "Stay Tonight," so be sure to check those out too! 🌟
