British music magazine NME selected singer IU’s fifth full-length album, LILAC, as the number one K-Pop Song of the Year for 2021. This album was released this past March, making it her first album release in four years.
The title track, “LILAC”, features a retro-feeling drum beat and rhythmic bass line along with IU’s lovely vocals.
‘Lilac’, IU’s first album in four years, is nothing short of magnificent. The 10-track comeback record not only reestablished her as an all-rounder, who has the ability to transition from elegant disco pop to soaring ballads to smoky R&B seamlessly, but also as an expert storyteller and songwriter.
Congrats to IU!
