Billboard has included five K-pop tracks to its “100 Greatest Girl Group Songs of All Time” list.
“I Got a Boy,” Girls’ Generation’s 2012 song, is listed at No. 21.
According to Billboard, “I Got a Boy” is “what happens when the greats strive to get greater, with this multi-genre, tempo-shifting Frankenstein’s-monster jam that jumps from drum ‘n’ bass to bubblegum hooks to Aguilera-esque belt sections.”
Wonder Girls’ 2008 phenomenal hit “Nobody” is at No. 43 on the list.
Billboard said the song “is an infectious, Motown-inspired earworm that encapsulated Wonder Girls’ charming penchant for throwback-inspired concepts – this time embracing girl groups of the ’50s and ’60s – and undeniable hooks (the hand-clapping on the chorus is incorporated into the song’s iconic dance).”
F(x)’s 2013 track “Rum Pum Pum Pum” is ranked 59th. At No. 70 is Red Velvet’s “Dumb Dumb,” the title track of their first studio album released in 2015.
Fin.K.L’s 2000 song “Now” made it to No. 88.
