Girls’ Generation & 2NE1 Can’t Beat Soyou & Junggigo’s ‘Some’?

By Staff Reporter | March 04, 2014 04:25 AM EST


Korea's leading girl groups 2NE1 and Girls' Generation couldn't stop the "Some" wave. The duet is still going strong at relay number 1 wins on various music programs and even music charts.

SISTAR's Soyou and hip hop singer JungGiGo released their song "Some" on February 7th.  This second collaboration project of Starship X is a medium tempo duet song. Geeks' Lil Boi lent his voice to the song and joined Soyou and Junggigo in creating an addictive song. "Some" lyrics express the feelings that go between a man and woman before they actually start dating. It has lyrics that are very relatable, and has been receiving much love from the public.

Since "Some" was released, it's been riding high. Korea's biggest MelOn Charts ranked "Some" as number 1 for a long time. Girls' Generation's title song "Mr.Mr" and 2NE1's title song "Come Back Home" were released on February 24th and 27th, respectively. As soon as the songs were released, they shot to the top of music charts, but it didn't even stay there for a full 48 hours before they were replaced. The best girl groups in Korea could not defeat the "Some" wave.

Eventually "Some" found its place again in the number 1 spot on the real-time charts and daily charts. Not only that, "Some" also took the number 1 trophy on various music programs back to back. Its first win was on MBC Music's "Show Champion" on February 19th. Not only that, it won number 1 on five different music programs that week, including Mnet "M! Countdown" on February 20th, KBS2 "Music Bank" on February 21st, MBC "Show! Music Core" on February 22nd, and SBS "Inkigayo" on February 23rd.

The duet song's popularity is still evident a week later. With the exception of the February 26th broadcast of "Show Champion", which didn't announce a winner, and the March 2nd broadcast of "Inkigayo", on which Sunmi's "Full Moon" took the number 1 win, "Some" took their 2nd consecutive win on the February 27th week broadcasts of "M! Countdown", "Music Bank", and "Show! Music Core". So far Soyou and Junggigo's "Some" already has 8 trophies, a record for 2014 (as of March 2nd)! They're tied with B1A4's "Lonely" for most trophies so far.
