Did you know it was practically summer in New York today? It’s not just us; cities up and down the Eastern seaboard have reported record-high temperatures.

That’s bad for the Earth, but good for me, who was yearning to finally put away his coats and jackets for the season. It’s also a great time to bust out some summer jams, and no one in K-Pop does summer jams better than Sistar.

In their heyday, fans used to anxiously wait for their annual summer release to mark the official start of beach party season. Loving U is as great of an example as they come.
