IVE is one of Korea’s newbie girl groups already taking over the world! Less than a year after IVE’s debut, the girls have already solidified top spots on Korean and worldwide music charts. Are you looking to add some of their music to your library? Here are five IVE songs that’ll have your friends jealous of your playlist!
We can’t start this list off without mentioning their debut song, the very song that helped them initiate their popularity. The captivating and energetic sound of it makes it hard not to adore. It also includes IVE’s iconic lyrics “Watch now one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. You make mе feel like elevеn.” The song talks about how someone makes you feel so special that you’re an 11 out of 10. What a confidence boost! If this isn’t already on your playlist, what are you waiting for?
Not even a year after debut, IVE came back with another chart-topping single. IVE hypnotize their listeners with romantic and soothing vocals that are sure to make you melt. From its addictive chorus to an unforgettable hook, ‘Love Dive‘ is a song on your playlist that will have everyone asking for its name. Add this song to your playlist now and it’ll have you feeling like you’re floating in the air.
While their title tracks are known to be iconic, their B-sides are nothing to play with as well. ‘Royal’ is fresh, fun, catchy, and has vocals that could kill. Not only do they showcase some impressive singing and high notes, but the girls also show off some of their rap skills. This song is something new from IVE and it will make you feel like royalty.
Contrary to the title track that it shares a single with, ‘My Satisfaction’ is the complete opposite of ‘After Like’s sound. With a more mature tone, this b-side shows a different view of the group. Unlike their other songs, ‘My Satisfaction’ has a mysterious, rock vibe to it. If you’re a fan of the darker sounds in K-pop, this song is the one for you.
Always save the best for last! ‘After Like‘ is their latest single that shows just how versatile they can be. The song samples from the famous hit, ‘I Will Survive’ by Gloria Gaynor, but still has that IVE feel to it. With its funky, disco-pop, and exhilarating sound, It’s almost impossible to listen to it and not want to dance to the tune. Not only is ‘After Like’ a certified bop, but this song was also meant to help IVE’s fans feel confident and encouraged. We love a consistent message!
