First Love

The position of main vocals is a crucial one in a girl group. As the name suggests, main vocalists sometimes have the task of performing vocal parts that highlight the climatic parts of songs like the lead vocals because of their wide range and frequent applications during songs.

In short, it is actually a much more difficult position than one might have assumed.

Here are our picks of the best main vocalists in K-Pop idol girl groups.

 

Rose - BLACKPINK

Rose has a strong but yet sweet vocal tone that masks her slight nasality very well. Many people either love or hate her vocals but we beg the differ. It's all about the way she can add character to her vocals that makes it so alluring. She hits Eb5 in Boombayah like a champ.

Solar - Mamamoo

She has a vocal tone similar to that of Ailee, TaeYeon, and HyoLyn. Her falsettos have also been very pleasing to listen to as she effortlessly transitions from singing voice to falsetto. Additionally, Solar is able to support down to A3 and her resonance is consistent up to C#5.

JiHyo - TWICE

Usually having the most parts in terms of distribution, JiHyo has a strong and clean vocal tone. Despite havinga slight nasal tone, her head voice is well connected all the time. JiHyo has a vocal range of E3 - D6 (2 octaves, 5 notes, and 1 semitone).

This is not a legit list of Wendy is not there......jihyo is there in the list when Wendy is not...are u kidding me...jihyo was badly defeated by seulgi in a singing contest just think what would have happened if Wendy and joy would have gone Wendy is the best third generation vocal whereas joy is the only kpop idol whose pat hits the charts for continuous 7 months.....she was the only kpop singer to be appreciated by a ost singer who thought that kpop idols can't sing ost's she was the one who changed her mind and these people are… Read more »

Let's face it in 3rd Gen GG, Solar and Wendy are like the leaders.Never really liked Rosé intentional a key higher voice while singing.As for Jihyo her reported range is incorrect.

I bet they're ranking them like this bcz they choose the popular groups like Blackpink and Twice.. I'm not hating but it's a fact that there are better vocalist out there.

I think Wendy and Yuju deserves to be on this list.. Their vocals are no joke. The ones on this list are great as well. So in my opinion is Wendy, Yuju and Solar 🙂

Uhm, you should hear Butterfly. Not BTS', but the collaboration of Rosé, Jihyo, Yuju, Jaehwan, and Sungjae. don't mean any offense tho, I just wanted to promote Yuju since she definitely deserve a spot. Other girls too like Wendy. They have real strong vocal powers and skills.

I saw many people saying jihyo/wendy are better. Maybe yes on vocal abilities since they’re belters but Rosie destroys them in the lower range and actually being stable live. If rosé would be trained properly she would be a beast

Have you even heard Wendy even Joy gives Rosé a run for her money in live performance. BLINKS with all their humongous following and support, needs to know Rosé is far from the best, good at best..

um sorry are you talking about rose vs wendy in live stages(dont follow twice thattt much) rose is a great vocalist she strains a little but her tone is amazing but saying destroys is a bit degrading... have u even seen a red velvet live. both red velvet and blackpink have intense dances(bp dance is probably stronger actually cus diff concept). not just wendy all members are pretty stable. not just red velvet live wendy has so many other stages(solo or collab) where she is stable and she's relatively consistent as well.. she also has a pretty wide range... not… Read more »

There are many great 3rd Gen vocalists like OMG - Seunghee, WJSN - Yeonjung, RV - Wendy, Gfriend - Yuju, etc.
But it shouldn't stop there. AKMU - Suhyun and Bolbbalgan4 - Jiyoung are also brilliant!
And so are soloists like Minseo and Heize.

Rose belong here?, ppl criticize her vocals and both Jisoo and Jenny are usually ranked higher. And why isn't the best vocalist (Yuju) not on the list

uhm, abt bp - u should know rose is their main vocal; jennie is their rapper and jisoo isn't bp's best voice. i don't think rose is a great singer either but her itchy scratchy voice (like park bom) stands out. she's different so people like her.
if u like yuju - good for u!
