Co-starring in PSY’s “Gangnam Style” might have eternally cemented HyunA in YouTube viewers consciousness, but the K-pop star has been racking up millions of views on her own just fine. With four solo singles to her name, the 22-year-old has earned more than 145 million views to date with her latest, the sassy and sexy “Red,” earning an additional million in less than 24 hours.
In case you need reminding of her incredible rapping and charisma, scroll through HuynA’s four solo vids below. Once you decided, let us know your favorite!
“Change” (2010) – Our first introduction to HyunA as a solo star, the singer/rapper was just 17 when she dropped this icy, synthy banger. Viewers quickly took notice of her can’t-look-away charisma, booty popping and, in particular, a scene where HyunA breaks it down in the rain.
“Bubble Pop!” (2011) – HyunA’s first taste of viral success, the addictive, dubstep-inspired single’s summery visual earned the Seoul singer her most-watched video to date with more than 76 million views.
“Ice Cream” (2012) – Riding high off her recognizability from PSY’s “Gangnam Style,” this sweet video earned 20 million views in 12 days, a rate similar to what recent releases from Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift were earning at the time. The automatic viral hit (co-starring PSY!) solidified HyunA’s popularity in the international music community.
“Red” (2014) – HyunA’s latest visual strengthens her brand as the charismatic diva who’s comfortable in her own skin. Looking a bit like Kim Kardashian at times, HyunA shows off her twerking skills, dons fetish-inspired gear and wears a monkey as a shirt at one point. With more than three million views already, it looks well on its way to joining the singer’s multitude of multi-million-viewed videos.
