The Boyz debuted in late 2017, and have rarely had a hiatus lasting more than a couple of months. This has allowed them to quickly cobble together enough title tracks for a top ten countdown.

Moving through a variety of sounds and styles with ease, this list is a testament to both their versatility and consistency. Read on to discover my top ten picks, and make sure to leave yours in the comments!

10. Reveal (2020)

As generically moody as The Boyz have ever gone, Reveal nonetheless has a few high points. And though not completely relevant to the song itself, the group’s dynamic Road to Kingdom performance helped buoy its appeal. (full review)

9. KeePer (2018)

A bright, airy summer appetizer between bolder comeback tracks, KeePer’s amiable guitar-led instrumental ingratiated itself more with time. (full review)

8. I’m Your Boy (2017)

A pre-debut teaser that capitalized on the group’s sweeter side, I’m Your Boy’s throwback pop melody and bouncy instrumental go down easy. (full review)

7. Boy (2017)

A catchy, pulsating debut, Boy established the guys’ tight group choreography while drawing upon the deep house trends of its era. It’s a slick, polished launching pad that would lead to greater triumphs down the line. (full review)

6. Bloom Bloom (2019)

As bright and “cutesy” as The Boyz’ title tracks would ever get, Bloom Bloom’s carnival-like atmosphere and earworm chorus stay just short of saccharine. Released during the spring of 2019, it’s a suitable encapsulation of the season. (full review)

5. No Air (2018)

Taking a slightly darker tone than its preceding title tracks, No Air nonetheless succeeds on its series of indelible grooves. Upon release, I remember being disappointed by its lack of a fleshed-out chorus. But, time has drawn out the track’s rhythmic charms. (full review)

4. D.D.D (2019)

As The Boyz only summertime comeback, D.D.D does a great job harnessing the energy of the season while maintaining a balance between the group’s brighter and edgier sides. Its chorus is one of their best, bounding with excitement. (full review)

3. Giddy Up (2018)

A follow-up that improved upon their debut in almost every way, Giddy Up paints The Boyz as heirs to SHINee’s electro-funk throne. Its verses crackle with vitality, but it’s that megawatt chorus that really seals the deal. (full review)

2. The Stealer (2020)

The Stealer has proven to get better with every listen. It’s the group’s most rhythmically diverse single, switching from high-octane, funk-inspired verses to a towering, combative chorus. I wasn’t initially sold on the juxtaposition, but the sheer polish and verve of this track keeps me coming back for more. (full review)

1. Right Here (2018)

Right Here generates incredible energy from start to finish. It’s indefatigable, and one of the only tracks in their arsenal that truly sounds as immense as their (at the time) 12-member configuration. Melding an angular melody with an equally jagged, synth-charged instrumental, Right Here is like the pop song version of a roller coaster ride. But instead of twists and turns, this is just one long freefall — single-minded in its electro-funk attack. (full review)
