May has finally made its long-awaited appearance, and for those in the northern hemisphere, this month means sunnier days, lighter clothing, and brighter colors. Even here in Taiwan, where the weather goes from hot to hotter, there’s something welcoming about the new month.

There’s also something rewarding about realizing how much of a journey you have trekked—and how you came out stronger on the other side. Chungha and Fifty Fifty, a veteran soloist and one of the newest girl groups on the scene, kick off this playlist of journeys. From “Killing Me” to “Lovin’ Me,” or Agust D‘s emotionally charged “Amygdala” and “D-Day,” take what you need as we head into May.
