2019 in review: the best songs of 2019

And the last episode of my 2019 in review series is finally here! Yes I released all four parts on the same day… I have A LOT of posts that need to go up before January is already HALF OVER so it couldn’t be helped. Hopefully it has been a nice welcome back to my blog after my LONGGGG hiatus? Like with my top 5 books post, these aren’t in any particular order, but just a collection of my favourite albums and songs of the year!

2019 in review: music stats

Okay, so you might have seen my bookish stats post that I posted earlier today…. but here is the music version! Enjoy!


So this first set of statistics includes all the music I LISTENED to in 2019. Unsurprisingly, my most listened to songs, artists and genre were K-Pop. That being said, less than half of my listening was K-Pop, as you can see by the little genre chart on the right. The most surprising part of this was a) that I listen to a lot of native american music (must be the instrumental stuff I like) and b) that TWICE’s BDZ (Japanese song) was my most listened to song! I think I listened to it on repeat for about 2 weeks in the summer when I had it stuck in my head, and then never really listened to it again! I’m not surprised that GOT7 was my most listened to artist though- their albums this year were top-quality, and I went to a concert as well. I thought Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now would be amongst my top songs, as well as MAX’s Hell’s Kitchen Angel, but apparently I didn’t listen to them as much as I thought I did!

Summer is almost here! (Not looking forward to the heat, but I am looking forward to it being light later.) I finally finished mock exams, so now I have loads of IAs (read: coursework) to do, but it’s still less pressure so hopefully I’ll be reading a bit more this month. Without further ado, here are the books I will (hopefully) be reading, and the music releases I am anticipating!

A.C.E’s ‘UNDER COVER’ Album Review

On Friday we welcomed 5-member boy group A.C.E‘s second mini album into the world. The album saw them take yet another change in style with their rap rock based title track, whilst maintaining a certain familiar quality throughout the rest of the mini album and the visuals of the music video.

INTRODUCING: A.C.E

Hello everyone! I actually did this post about a year ago on my old blog, but I decided to do an updated version for my new blog. So, if you’re interested in finding out more about A.C.E, have never heard of them before, or love them as much as I do, settle down, and let’s go!


A.C.E is a 5 member boy group from the company Beat Interactive. Beat Interactive is a small company, and A.C.E is their first, and so far only, artist. Unlike lots of Korean music companies, Beat gets a lot of love from A.C.E’s fans (Choice), who often call the CEO “Queen”.

In addition to their music, A.C.E can be admired for their charitable spirit, holding charity concerts and donating regularly despite coming from a very small company and not having much money. Their CEO also encourages their education; the members go to Uni and regularly read books about feminism. They debuted on the 23rd of May 2017, after gaining fans through busking and covers of popular artists such as BTS, BLACKPINK, and John Legend.
