Brown Eyed Girls have pushed down their competitors on various music charts with the release of their comeback single, “Recipe”.

The group released new digital single “Recipe” on July 9 at noon, and it immediately climbed to the top of several local music charts including Melon, Mnet, Bugs, Monkey3, Naver, Soribada and more.

“Recipe” is a retro pop number, composed by rising hip-hop producer Primary. The lyrics were co-written by Dynamic Duo’s Choiza and Brown Eyed Girls’ Miryo, and sings about comparing love to cooking.

More R&B goodness this time from a kpop classic, The Brown Eyed Girls (BEG).

BEG’s been on hiatus from a pretty long time, and it’s great to hear again from them.

Power vocalist Ailee has swept all the music charts with her latest title song, “U&I”.

Ailee made her comeback on July 12 with the release of her second mini album ‘A’s Doll House’. Immediately after her album’s release, her title song “U&I” shot atop Korean music real-time charts including MelOn, Bugs Music, Olleh, Mnet, Soribada, Daum Music, Monkey3 and Naver Music, leading to a coveted chart “all-kill”.

Along with the title song, Ailee’s other tracks such as “Rainy Day” and “No No No” also ranked high on the charts, as well as hotly searched for on various Korean portal sites.

“U&I” is a funky tune that features Ailee’s powerful vocals. The song was co-written by K-Pop hitmaker Shinsadong Tiger.

———————-

I’ve been waiting for Ailee’s comeback for a pretty long time! Ever since her last hit, “I’ll Show You”, I’ve been searching for her cover songs, and I’ve become a fan. She really deserves to be called Korea’s new R&B superstar!

Her new song’s awesome, and has subtle hints of jazz and trot in the background instrumentals ^^,

http://www.dkpopnews.net/2013/07/big-bang-to-perform-at-singapore-gand.html

Big Bang is going to be together again in one stage to perform at “Singapore Gand Prix”.
The announcement of Big Bang’s participation at the event was revealed accidentally. Originally, Bigbang was part of another “Guess Who” contest where fans can guess and vote on until July 3, but unfortunately someone accidentally already posted the news on the official media portion of the site before removing it.
Big Bang will perform on the main stage in zone 4.
Since Big Bang’s participation is already confirmed, do purchase your tickets here.
————————————
I attended Singapore F1 last year, and all the big acts that are invited to this awesome weekend usually perform at the Padang Stage in the Esplanade complex. This year, there are four big acts performing during F1 weekend —- Big Bang, The Killers, Rihanna and Justin Bieber.
Goes to show how popular Big Bang has become as artists within the Asian region ^^,

Big Bang’s Daesung (D-LITE) releases the concept photos of his single album ‘I Love You’. The song is a remake of Yutaka Ozaki’s. In D-Lite’s version, he is going to collaborate with Japanese Violinist Taro Hakase.

The song will be released on July 31.

——————————

I’m a big fan of Daesung. He’s probably the best vocalist in Big Bang, and I’m glad he’s coming out with another solo album. Just looking at the pictures, most probably we’re going to be hearing some new ballads from Daesung-ie.
