13 months after releasing their first full-length album, the rising South Korean R&B crew The Good Days Boys released their second full-length album The Good Days Boys Playlist 2.
Consisting of three up-and-coming artists and friends, R&B singers Jimmy Brown and Sweet The Kid, and rapper Rovv, The Good Days Boys are skilled in producing sensuous R&B songs. While being unfamiliar to most Korean listeners, this rookie crew achieved more than five million streams globally on Spotify with the release of their first full-length album The Good Days Boys Playlist 1 on December 2021.
Unlike The Good Days Boys Playlist 1 which consists of 24 tracks, The Good Days Boys Playlist 2 humbly includes only 10 songs that demonstrate the three artists’ charm to the fullest. The album got a positive response from netizens such as “It’s a masterpiece that speaks for itself” and “A new flow in Korean popular music that deserves more attention.”
However, such immense popularity is not surprising. The Good Days Boys’ member Jimmy Brown has previously taken the spotlight after his solo songs “2 Things” and “Irene” were acknowledged by BTS‘ Jimin and Red Velvet‘s Wendy. Despite not having any exposure outside his social media and streaming platforms, Jimmy Brown has managed to achieve critical acclaim and outstanding presence as a Korean indie R&B artist.
With almost all of their lyrics written in English, The Good Days Boys are taking the world by storm and drawing the attention of not only regular listeners but Korean and overseas DJs. In October, they participated in “K R&B Rising Vol.1” hosted by Seoul Therapy where they performed at London’s The Social and Paris’ Punk Paradise live music clubs and received enthusiastic responses from the audience. Later in November, the crew was also invited to perform at Boston’s Northeastern University.
Not long ago, The Good Days Boys announced the 2023 U.S. tour after signing a contract with a Korean concert agency MPMG. While no specific details have been announced yet, many fans are already anticipating the tour as a new milestone in the crew’s career.
