If you are looking for the best Kpop summer songs, Red Velvet is your best Kpop idol to listen to!

Want a festival vibe? The girls from Red Velvet take you on a wild ride with their ReVe Festival mini-album. While it has upbeat drums, the ballad part in the middle of the song slows it down, which channels their red side. It's the best of both worlds! "Zimzalabim," or "sim sala bim," as it's also romanized, is considered the abracadabra of some Scandinavian countries like Sweden. Chant it to cast a spell to let go of all your stress this summer!
