The year 2018 has passed and overall the Korean music scene continues to record a more colorful new page. A series of successful hit songs were named at the awards ceremony, giving their owners the deserved Daesang trophies. However, it would be flawed if we did not mention one of 2018’s super hits, a song that absolutely deserves the title of “Song of the Year” – Momoland‘s “Bboom Bboom“. Find out why Momoland deserves this title!
Digital sales are great
When it was first released on January 3, 2018, “Bboom Bboom” was completely nowhere to be seen on the Korean music charts. The 91th position on the top 100 of MelOn is even the highest rank ever for Momoland.
But no one could have expected, after the controversial victory on Music Bank and the plagiarism rumor, “Bboom Bboom” suddenly climbed up the charts, got to No. 2 on the top 100 MelOn, which is probably what 9 Momoland could girls never think of.
Continuing to maintain its incredible rank, “Bboom Bboom” is currently the song with 4th highest Gaon’s music scores this year with nearly 930 million, temporarily the most successful girl group song in 2018.
The hot dance that created a trend around the world
Just like the success formula that Shinsadong Tiger has applied to “Bboom Bboom“, besides the super-catchy melody, the choreography is also one of the key factors creating the boom for this song. Thousands of cover dance clips for “Bboom Bboom” appeared on Youtube, from young people, boys and girls, and even many other idols couldn’t resist the charm of this song.
The amount of Youtube views
Up to the present time, after more than 11 months of release, the “Bboom Bboom” MV has gained 296 million views on Youtube, second only to BTS (Fake Love and IDOL) and BLACKPINK (DDU-DU DDU-DU) on the list of the most viewed MVs in 2018. In addition, “Bboom Bboom” also helped Momoland become the first female group out of BIG3 with 2 million likes on YouTube.
Take Momoland from an unknown group to become a phenomenon of 2018
Undeniably thanks to “Bboom Bboom“, Momoland completely changed its fate. Releasing 2 previous albums but leaving no impression, now 9 girls have a certain place in the K-Pop industry, owning 2 MVs over 100 million and the second most popular hit in 2018 and extremely famous in the Philippines, Indonesia,…
Although there are many other famous names in 2018 such as “Love Scenario” (iKON) or “DDU-DU DDU-DU” (BLACKPINK), it’s hard to find a harmonious song between all aspects of the catchy melody, digital record, Youtube view or a trend dance movement around the world. It is not exaggerating to say that “Bboom Bboom” deserves the song of 2018!
