♫ Call me pretty and nasty ♫

Posted on

Even though we're only in July, we've already had countless of amazing songs from K-Pop artists. Below are a list of 24 of our favorites.

The songs are listed in the order they were released, not in order of our favorites.

With each song, we also included our favorite lyrics and another song by the artist.
