6+ Female Soloists That Prove 2021 Is The Return Of The “Hot Girl Summer”
Summer of 2021 has proven itself to be the summer of female soloists. Here are 6 of the most talented women in K-Pop who’ve shown their stuff over the past months (and a few more yet to come):
1. AleXa – “Xtra”
AleXa had the first major comeback of the season with her song “Xtra” where she showed off her famous dance skills alongside her smooth vocals.
She even delivered the most relatable lyric this year with her rap of “on my burger and my fries always extra cheese”.
AleXa always delivers excellence with her solo outings and this summer has been no exception.
2. Soyeon – “Beam Beam”
With her solo track “Beam Beam”, (G)I-DLE‘s Soyeon delivered a fast food fantasy while flexing her impressive rap skills and distinct vocals.
Her MV was a fun fever dream of snack foods come to life with Soyeon looking stunning amongst the living burgers.
This has been an excellent era for Soyeon, providing her with multiple music show wins and a budding friendship with senior idols 2PM.
3. Taeyeon – “Weekend”
Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon delivered a cotton candy pink fantasy with her song “Weekend”.
For this era she brought back her popular blonde hair and even experimented with more copper-y hair colors, both of which suited her well.
With soothing vocals and stunning visuals, it’s easy to see why this has been such a hot comeback for Taeyeon.
4. Minzy – “TEAMO”
2NE1‘s Minzy killed this latin comeback with her gorgeous vocals and unmatched dance capabilities.
Minzy has always been known for her versatility and the way she adapted to this Latin style proves her skill.
As far as hot comebacks go, this was one of the hottest visually and we can’t wait for more of this from Minzy in the future.
5. Somi – “Dumb Dumb”
Somi‘s song “Dumb Dumb” has done brilliantly on the charts with it having performed incredibly well on both iTunes and YouTube.
Somi mixes a concept heavily inspired by teen rom-coms with a spicy choreography. This allows her to reveal her more playful nature while getting to show off her hot visuals.
We can’t wait to see how the rest of her promotions play out as Somi keeps making this summer a bit warmer.
6. Sunmi – “You can’t sit with us”
Sunmi has the most recent release on the list with her 80’s inspired bop “You can’t sit with us”.
With a MV inspired by classic zombie films, Sunmi rocks vintage looks while getting chased by zombies (and making it look good too).
If we’ve learned anything from this comeback, it’s that if there’s a zombie apocalypse, we want her on our team!
These are just the hot ladies who’s songs have been officially released for the summer. Here are 3 more queens of summer sure to heat it up once their tracks are out:
1. Lisa – Solo Debut
While there isn’t a date yet for the solo debut for BLACKPINK‘s LISA, we can’t wait to see the sick raps and incredible dancing she’ll bring when it comes out at some point this August.
2. HYO – “Second (Feat. 비비 (BIBI))”
Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon (also known as HYO) is ready to make her comeback August 9 at 6pm KST. With it so close, we can’t wait to see how Hyoyeon adds her heat to this already hot summer.
3. Kwon Eunbi – Solo Debut
Former IZ*ONE‘s Kwon Eunbi is set to bring her vocals and her dance to what’s sure to be an incredible solo debut sometime in late August. Although no date is set, we can’t wait to see her close out the summer with a bang.
