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.
Among the sixty-five songs listed, only three are K-Pop songs. BTS Fake Love and Singularity have been ranked at No. 20 out of 31 in Caramanica's list, while BLACKPINK's Ddu-du-Ddu-du makes the link at No. 31
A photograph accompanies BTS's ranking, displaying a snapshot of the seven members during their Citi Field concert. The captions read "The K-pop group BTS showcased its close relationship with its fans at Citi Field" giving a silent tribute to ARMY amidst all their accomplishments.
