9. TWICE – “Signal”

11. Red Velvet – “Red Flavor”
Red Velvet has a lot of high-energy tracks released under the brighter “red” side of their concept, so they always bring the right vibes to a summer classic like “Red Flavor.” Tracks like this can be hard to pull off, but these ladies make it look easy with their smooth vocals and dynamic rapping style.
12. BTS – “Go Go”
It’s not often that BTS brings a silly song like “Go Go” to an album, but it’s always fun when they do! This one is all about going all out, and the members have certainly done that. The underlying flute melody that ties the track together with the indifferent attitude of the vocal and rap sections makes this one amazing – and the performance is just too cute!
