Non-Korean Songs We Discovered Through K-Pop

AKP STAFF
misc.
1. Recommended by: Seulgi
Seulgi of Red Velvet did an amazing performance to a song that you could tell she was feeling! That's right, she chose Maroon 5's "Lucky Strike" to do her ultra-complicated, dynamic and fast-paced choreo too! We stan a queen!
2. Recommendation by: J-Hope and Jimin
BTS J-Hope and Jimin are both skilled dance gods sent from dance heaven! In this particular Bangtan Bomb, both boys are dancing to Troye Sivan's "Youth" and the song is the perfect choice for their elegant, but quick choreography! A great song for a K-Pop fan who likes muted pop songs.
3. Recommended by Eric Nam
Though this particular track isn't necessarily a direct recommendation, we've seen artist Eric Nam, reach out to many Western artists to collaborate on his newest tracks. AOBeats, in particular, is an artist that featured Eric on his fun, electronic track "Like You". AO's latest endeavor includes his full-length release, Pilot, which we highly recommend if you enjoyed what he did with Eric Nam. We recommend starting out with "No Fakin'" or "Peanut Butter".
4. Recommended by: RM
RM of BTS is extremely well-known by ARMY as the song guru! He always posts his recommendations or songs that he has in heavy rotation on Twitter and this track by the talented beauty, Jorja Smith, is one of the best recommendations he's given to date. "Something In The Way" is sultry and beautiful and a must-have addition to anyone's music library.
5. Recommended by: Hyungwon
MONSTA X Hyungwon choreographed this dance to August Alsina's "Numb". This song is a bonafide party hit and a certified bop to get down to. We tip our hats off to Hyungwon not only for the awesome choreography but this high-energy hip-hop recommendation. Shownu and Wonho look great breaking it down to this track as well! Thank you, Dance Line!
6. Recommended by: Changbin
When a fan asked the Stray Kids twitter what their favorite song was, Changbin gave an entire album instead! He recommended Norwegian DJ and producer, Cashmere Cat's latest full-length release, "9" as his favorite at the moment. We couldn't agree more with Changbin! Cashmere Cat ought to reach out to Stray Kids for his next release

7. Recommended by: Sehun
This song was originally by Duck Sauce, but this particular version of "It's You" is remixed and reworked by FREE DRINKZ x FootwoRk. This hype EDM song is very different from what idols usually recommend, but Sehun has done this iconic choreo dozens of times live for fans and it seems that fans all over the world have taken to loving the song!
