B-Side Spotlight: July 2022 (Sunye, aespa, Heize, SF9, VIVIZ, ATEEZ, STAYC, WJSN, Hyolyn, HyunA, more)

Some of my absolute favourites dropped albums or were featured artists last month, and I love that for me — it’s the energy I deserve.

Because of that, this playlist is one of the most fun I have put together for a while — so I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. Let’s go!


aespa – “Illusion” 

I’m a reluctant aespa stan at this point.


Apink CHOBOM – “Oscar”

ATBO – “Run”

ATEEZ – “Cyberpunk”

Chungha – “Louder”

CSR – “Manito”

DPR Ian – “Calico”

H1-KEY – “Catch ‘N’ Release”

Heize (Feat. I.M (Monsta X)) – “Distance”

These two are a dream duo; their voices go perfectly together.


Hyolyn – “BODY TALK”

HyunA – “whatever”

P1Harmony – “Swagger”

PURPLE KISS – “FireFlower”

SF9 – “Driver”

SF9 delivering as always.



Sunye – “Genuine”

We thank you, Queen Sunye, for watering our crops and clearing our skin.


TO1 – “Sugar Shock”



This is a bop, but I don’t think “baby, you’re my siesta” makes … a lot of sense? You’re my short sleep? You’re my midday nap? Actually, that’s kind of sweet … I take back my comment.


WJSN – “Done”

Xdinary Heroes – “Strawberry Cake”


And that’s it!

Please share your favourite idol B-sides from July with me in the comments, and happy listening!
