Girls’ Generation and f(x) are included in Fuse TV’s best songs and albums of 2013 lists along with Katy Perry, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and Kanye West.

The nine-member girl group’s “I Got A Boy,” is included in Fuse TV’s 41 best songs of 2013.

“Minimal drum’n'bass. Clunky electro-pop. Fierce rapping. Soaring diva vocals. Drastic tempo changes. Xylophones: This K-pop confection has something for every music fan out there. With a sing-along chorus and slick production that gracefully blends all these disparate sounds together, it’s a shame a proper Western push was never utilized—Girls’ Generation could be global superstars,” according to Fuse TV.

The song is the title track of Girls’ Generation’s fourth Korean studio album released last January.

The list also includes Beyonce ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “***Flawless,” Janelle Monáe feat. Miguel’s “PrimeTime,” Lady Gaga’s “Venus,” Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko’s “Stay,” Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Daft Punk feat. Pharrell’s “Get Lucky,” One Direction’s “Diana,” Katy Perry’s “Roar” and Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man.”

F(x)’s “Pink Tape” album was released last July and it featured the song “Rum Pum Pum Pum.”

“It’s the most experimental K-pop album of the year: Pink Tape, girl group f(x)’s second full-length album, is steeped in quirky, boundary-pushing electronic sounds with woozy harmonies, English and Korean raps and cheerleader-esque chants. The production ranges from punchy EDM to arena-sized electronic rock and beyond,” according to Fuse TV.

The album is included in Fuse TV’s 41 best albums of 2013.

The list includes Beyonce’s “Beyonce,” Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same,” Paramore’s “Paramore,” A$AP Rocky’s “Long.Live.A$AP,” Sara Bareilles’ “The Blessed Unrest,” Justin Timberlake, “The 20/20 Experience (Part 1),” Ariana Grande’s “Yours Truly” and Kanye West’s “Yeezus.”

Recently, TIME named “I Got A Boy” as one of the year’s Top 10 Songs.

“The nine-woman South Korean group Girls’ Generation is a ridiculously effective hook machine, and a major phenomenon in Asia, whose biggest pop acts make One Direction and Katy Perry sound like audience-alienating avant-gardists,” TIME said.

Topping the TIME’s list of Top 10 Songs is “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk followed by “The Wire” by Haim, “Control” by Big Sean feat. Jay Electronica & Kendrick Lamar, “Ohm” by Yo La Tengo, “I Got A Boy” by Girls’ Generation, “Cut Copy Me” by Petula Clark, “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus, “Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy)” by David Bowie, “Cups” by Anna Kendrick and “Royals” by Lorde.
