The Weekly Playlist (4)

Posted March 18, 2021 by Rowena in Features, Music | 2 Comments

One of my favorite things to do when I was back home in L.A. was to take drives with my friend B Nice so that we can listen to our newly discovered favorite songs by BTS. We both discovered BTS over the pandemic and have been crazy for all things BTS. When I moved to Vegas, those drives stopped but I decided that I’m going to use my blog to share what songs I’m listening to each week with both B Nice and everyone else who reads this blog. This week, I’m featuring the rap line from BTS. I feel like I don’t give them as much love as I do the vocal line though I do love them hella. I promise. These three are the songs that I’ve been listening to a lot lately and after they are all fantastic songs.

DKDKTV does a really great job of explaining the meaning and themes behind a lot of BTS songs for international fans. In this video, they explain the lyrics of Ddaeng and though I loved the song before watching that video, I love it even more now. Such a great song. Unfortunately, this song isn’t part of any of their albums. I do believe that they released this song for a fan event and you can listen to it on the BTS Soundcloud, for free.

This song is another gem of a song with a message that I can totally get behind. You can watch the song explained video from DKDKTV here. Shout out to the hard work that these guys do for us international fans. This song is basically about people being jerks and getting mad over every little thing. Wasting energy being pissed off and trolling others on the internet. Especially the trolls that troll celebrities and make their already stressful jobs, even more stressful..for no damn reason. Use that anger for more useful things, like making the world a better place. Be mad that there is still oppression going on in the world. Be mad about those kinds of things. Do better.

This song is a Suga solo and it’s one that showcases just how fast this man can rap. His style of rapping reminds me of Eminem and Twista, that super-fast flow and I’m here for it. Suga is pissed at all of those haters in this song and he goes off. I’m really loving how different Agust D is from Suga. Agust D is rawer than Suga is. This is the kind of artist that I think Suga would have been without BTS. I’m glad that he’s with BTS and he’s a huge part of the reason that I love BTS so much but I love that we can get so many different sides to each member through their solo work. This is a great song and is definitely worthy of being part of your playlists. Again, this is another song that you won’t find on any album but on the BTS SoundCloud. There are a lot of good stuff over there so head on over and check them out.

What songs are you on your playlist this week? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be BTS. Share in the comments!
