Recently, the Genius site has announced the most-searched Kpop solo artists and groups in 2021.
Genius Korea, a website that provides lyrics, meanings, captions, and sources of K-pop songs, has released its list of the top K-pop songs dominating its year-end chart.
Accordingly, the most searched boy group song is “Butter” by BTS. This is considered the group’s most popular song in 2021.
In the meantime, TWICE‘s song “Cry For Me” is the most searched girl group song in 2021. Cry For Me marks a significant shift in TWICE’s musical direction, moving away from the image of cute, bright girls engulfed in love and toward a darker version. Many fans are ecstatic about the change of the 9 JYP girls.
The most searched male artist’s song is “Snow Flower” by V (feat. Peakboy). Meanwhile, Rosé‘s “Gone” is the most-searched female artist’s song. This is a b-side track in the BLACKPINK member’s debut album. The music video for GONE received a positive response from fans almost immediately after its release, garnering 8.9 million views and 2.3 million likes on YouTube.
In contrast to the title track “On the Ground,” “Gone” reveals Rosé’s inner feelings, subtly conveying the sadness of a girl in love. Rosé recorded the song for the first time in 2019. The female singer expressed her appreciation for “Gone” and stated that it was truly written for her.
