Tracks by BTS and BLACKPINK were selected by the New York Times as some of the best songs of the year!
On December 6, the New York Times released its rankings titled “The 65 Best Songs of 2018.” There are separate lists by two of the newspaper’s music critics, Jon Pareles and Jon Caramanica, and their lists in total come to 65 songs.
Jon Caramanica’s list has 31 rankings with some entries including multiple songs by the same artist. BTS and BLACKPINK are the only Korean artists to make the list.
BTS comes in at No. 20 with their songs “Fake Love” and “Singularity.” BTS’s “Fake Love” is the title track off their May 2018 mini album “Love Yourself: Tear,” while “Singularity” is a solo track by member V that was the intro to that album.
BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU DDU-DU” grabs the No. 31 spot on the list. The song was released in June as the title track of their mini album “Square Up.”
