On July 31 (US time), Billboard has posted on its homepage an article titled “The 25 Best Red Velvet Songs: Critic’s Picks”. Billboard introduced in detail about Red Velvet’s music and achievements, “Somehow, it’s been five years since Red Velvet made their debut with ‘Happiness’ in 2014. So, Billboard decided to celebrate their anniversary by combing through their discography and ranking our favorite songs.”

In particular, Billboard gave many positive comments to Red Velvet, “This five-member girl group reached the upper echelon of the K-pop scene with a split concept: they meld the vibrant pep of their ‘Red’ side with the smooth R&B of their ‘Velvet’ side. Besides, this quintet is constantly pushing themselves into new territory, taking conceptual risks while maximizing the outsize talent of their unit.”

The article also focuses on Red Velvet’s exciting activities, “Red Velvet has racked up a sizable amount of achievements over the years. The group once swept Korean charts. Moreover, earlier this year, the ladies embarked on their first headlining tour in the States, and they instantly sold out a Los Angeles date. This past year, ‘Bad Boy’ made them the first girl group to top Billboard’s ‘The 20 Best K-pop Songs of 2018: Critic’s Picks’.”

In addition, Billboard also explained the reason for the vote and nominated 25 Red Velvet’s best songs. Regarding “Red Flavor” – the song that ranked No.1, this newspaper shared, “‘Red Flavor’ is practically Red Velvet’s signature song at this point.
