The New York Times released its 65 Best Song of 2018 where BTS and BLACKPINK are included as the only K-Pop songs on the list.

Is anyone surprised?

 
Put together by New York Times music critics Jon Pareles and Jon Caramanica, the list reflects a mixture of songs that not only topped the charts but also created a sensation by its cultural, sociological, and political influence.
