Stray Kids

Speaking of key-pop: while we're on the subject, it would be inexcusable to leave it out Stray Kids - one of the leading bands in the industry today! Towards the end of 2023 the guys released a dynamic track with a concise title "LALALALA". A catchy uncomplicated chorus, a danceable melody, a cool rhythm... In general, everything is in the best traditions of K-pop.

But no less noteworthy music videowhich is more like a mini-movie with fantasy elements. Everything looks very cool, stylish and ultra-modern. No wonder the band is so popular - it's hard to imagine how much work the guys do every time before releasing a new song.

We got out of the situation in another way: the track "Barbie World." ring a bell? Yes, yes, a familiar melody was used in it. The track was performed by two American rappers Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice.

The dynamic composition was very much liked by the Western audience - and the rather sultry music video, too, in fact. The video, which is set in the atmosphere appropriate to the film, has already garnered over 120 million views! And something tells us this is far from the limit.....
