Korean hip-hop producer Primary’s “I Got C,” the hugely popular tune lost its fame after embroiled in a plagiarism issue, has topped MelOn’s weekly singles chart.
The tune, produced for TV personality Park Myung-soo’s participating tune for the song festival of MBC’s variety show “Infinite Challenge,” grabbed much popularity and topped the chart during the week of November 4 and 10.
The swing hip-hop jazz tune, rolled out on November 2 and shot straight up to No. 1 on numerous music charts, caused a controversy with its similarity with Dutch musician Caro Emerald’s recent releases.
Sitting at the No. 2 is another tune from “Infinite Challenge,” Jung Hyung-don and G-Dragon’s electronic hip-hop “Going to Try,” followed by Yoo Jae-seok and Yoo Hui-yeol’s ’90s R&B Please Don’t Go My Girl.”
Last week’s chart-topper Trouble Maker’s “Now” slid down to number four, while Noh Hong-chul and Rose Motel’s “Please Call Me OPPA” from the MBC variety show rounded off the top five.
Other tunes much beloved last week are Sung Si-kyung’s “To You,” the remake of Taeji&Boys’ fan song for tvN”s “Reply 1994,” San E’s new hip-hop “Where Did You Sleep,” Park Ji-yoon’s “Mr. Lee,” Ailee’s ballad “Becuase of Tears” and miss A’s new title dance “Hush.”
Over on the albums chart, “’Infinite Challenge’ Free Road Song Festival” continued to top the chart, while Busker Busker’s second album and IU’s third studio album “Modern Times” also secured No. 2 and No. 3 places, respectively.
