The member of the band are Seo Eun-kwang, Lee Min-hyuk, Lee Chang-sub, Im Hyun-sik, Peniel Shin and Yook Sung-jae. Initially, there were 7 of them but one member, Jung Il-hoon departed from the group in December last year.
Ever since their debut, fans have been blessed with perfect pitched voices, smooth rap lines, and emotional songs. Their appearance on Kingdom: Legendary War has brought them to international attention where people finally appreciate not only their good looks but killer vocals. If you’re new to BTOB’s fandom called ‘Melody’, here are some hidden gems that you can add to your playlist.
1) “My Girl” – Press Play (2012)
While songs like “WOW” and “Press Play” from one of BtoB’s earlier albums, “Press Play” are famous, the song “My Girl” is not getting the recognition it deserves. This song is catchy and you’ll immediately feel the warmness of the melody in this specific song if you’re familiar with BtoB songs. Perfect for spring or summer vibe, this song will make you feel all good inside.
2) “Ello Ello” – Beep Beep (2014)
The backstory of this song is about confessing our feelings to the person we like. It’s cute, happy, and so hopeful. The beat is catchy, it will lift your spirits and get you up dancing afterward.
3) “Hope You’re Doing Fine” – Move (2014)
This is the perfect song to blast on when you’re wallowing over a breakup. It starts with Changsub’s smooth and soothing vocals and continued with Minhyuk’s rap line that will heal your soul. The whole song is written to those who have gone through or are going through heartbreak.
4) “Yes I Am” – New Men (2016)
This one is BtoB’s most empowering and motivating song! It will drive you to be productive and inspire you to do whatever you have on your list. The build-up that leads to the chorus is emotional and the chorus itself is amazing enough to bring you a big wave of feelings.
5) “Red Lie” – Brother Act (2017)
“Red Lie” tells the story of a lover who has lost interest in their partner. Although it suits well to be a slow song, it is actually a bit upbeat but the melody is still solemn and melancholy.
6) “My Lady” – Brother Act (2017)
The album “Brother Act” is famous for its hit song, “Missing You”, but the track right after which is “My Lady” is also a bop! The song starts with the smooth and angelic voice of Changsub, combined with Minhyuk’s rap line. The song is the perfect combination of heartfelt and heartbreak.
7) “About Time” – Feel’eM (2017)
As usual, most of BtoB’s songs are produced by the members themselves. “About Time” is not excluded. It was produced by Minhyuk and former member, Ilhoon. Everything about the song puts you right in the feels and you’ll have it on repeat! It starts with the mellow rap of Minhyuk and the song just get even better with the poetic lyrics.
