Top 10 EXO Members with the Best Voice
My favourite singer in EXO is undeniably D.O (he makes you fel y'know) but Chen definitely deserves the top spot. While his singing might not have as much of clear emotion as, say, Suho's or D.Os, he has improved a lot recently emotion-wise. I don't think that being able to hit high notes is why Chen should deserve the top spot on this list (although he would definitely be at the top if that was the case too). In fact he earned my vote because he has a clarity of voice that Baekhyun comes quite close to but hasn't quite gotten yet. Chen is just an amazing singer who can do unbelievable things with his voice-so props to him.
Though everyone praises Chen's high notes, it is not his forte. Chen's specialty is his Lower Register, arguably can be called the most developed Lower Register in all of K-POP. His Middle Register isn't bad, with a few flaws and strengths to balance it out. His Upper Register is the weakest. Among EXO, his sense of pitch is the best, as well as his technique. His Lower Register can support down to C3, and as of lately, A2. His soft palate is often lifted, and among EXO, he sings with the least tension.
His dancing is very good too, probably as good as Luhan's, but since he is mainly a vocalist he's not as good as kai or Lay. Given his dancing and singing ability, he has the most potential in other things because he is talented at dancing and singing, and not just one thing. However, he needs to work on emotion and probably is not as good as acting as others in EXO who can express emotion. He also cannot rap, but since he's not a rapper, no one will hold anything against him.
Honestly, my personal favorite singer is Kyungsoo (D.O.). His voice is deep (as in it "touches your soul"), and full of meaning. He has a great vocal range, although it is not that great compared to that of Chen, Baekhyun, and even Xiumin with the high-notes. Even though D.O. is the singer I enjoy hearing the most, I do very much recognize Chen as the best capable singer in all of Exo. To be quite frank, I believe he is probably in the Top 3 if not number 1 of S.M.. He honestly has the strongest vocals, and the most talented voice out of all of Exo.
D.O.'s voice was what attracted me to him and EXO. Hearing his *baby girl* verse in Call Me Baby made me realise how much I missed in the Kpop world... I had only listened to Girl Kpop groups in the past 1 year>.<! His smooth pronunciation of both foreign languages English & Spanish is also highly commendable. I bet he even did some research to understand what his verses meant, that's why when he sang For Life in english, I felt real emotion coming from his voice and even for Sabor A Mi, though I'm not spanish or learn the language, his rolling R's were rlly good! How he juggles his singing, dancing and acting career(which won him awards by the way) also remains a mystery HAHA hope he gets his well deserved solo album soon! Keep up the amaing work D.O.!
Kyungsoo has good control over his voice and is the most agile vocalist in Exo, being able to switch into falsetto and back into mixed voice very easily. Because of this, he is also the vocalist who does the most vocal runs in Exo, although he does not sing as many high notes because of a lack of support at times. Although Chen is arguably the best vocalist in Exo owing to good technique and stamina, Kyungsoo should be 2nd as his only major problem is his improper position or jaw placement that can make certain notes sound flattened or pitchy.
D. O is amazing! His voice control is best out of all! His low notes are sexy and that's not all! Its like his voice is very deep (expression) not for real though if you know what I mean but its very soulful. Its as if he's tellig a story. He's perfect! I think all of them do but the best in my opinion is the one and only D. O!
D.O's vocals stand out because of the fluidity, I truly believe he deserves second best, as his vocal range is wider than Baekhyun. Baekhyun excels at the higher vocal range, while D.O can hold his place in most ranges. D.O shows more variety in his vocals, which is why deserves second
My vocal bias was Chen because of the power and range but every time I hear Baekhyun, his voice is really resonating and I love his timbre. He can also sing soulfully yet can hit high notes at the same time.
Baekhyuns voice makes me feel the purpose behind why he's singing, his voice is the voice I want to hear echoing through my head as I'm riding down the highway in the heat of the day. His voice is the voice I want to listen to while basking in sunlight...listen, I don't mean into deep about what this man's voice makes me feel- and don't get me wrong D.O. and Chen are two of my biases but...
While D.O.'s voice is absolutely beautiful, riffs and runs are undeniably common, and nonetheless his voice still does make me feel things. Also, while Chen's voice is very, very powerful and his amount of control cannot be contested, and although he is undeniably the best vocalist in EXO- Baekhyun is a better singer. His voice will unravel you, and cover you, and keep you warm.
Again, I'm sorry about this rant y'all...I just feel something, I guess.
He can sound warm when needed and sound a bit harsh when needed. His voice conveys emotion of the song which I don't find much in Chen's singing. He can pull off high notes but suffers in low notes. He can add kink to the song where needed and it hits your heart. And his voice is unique. You cannot call it rough voice or smooth voice, it's somewhere in the middle but very distinct unlike DO's voice because I find his voice very common even though he's incomparable when it comes to singing. I just think Baekhyun has more voice colour than others.
Many of you may not know this, but actually Baekhyun has the widest vocal range (widest. Not highest or lowest) in EXO and he can kill low notes even more than high notes but since, he is in EXO, he needs to accommodate. I am really looking out for his solo album which he will continue along with EXO promotions. His voice is also very flexible, just listen to his solo - Dream, Rain, Take me Home, The Day, Love Song(he sings the whole song in a falsetto), Psycho and the upcoming collab with Locco. Chen admits that Baek is good at low notes in CBX travel the ladder. Baek just doesn't show his singing capabilities much because he likes messing around. And his voice is emotional. Example-
Dream- that chirpy, out of the world pleasant feeling even without the MR.
Rain- the song without the back will make you cry.
And Psycho is something out of the world. The crazy theme, desperate, lost and turning on feel kills me. It ends me.
So, baek for the lead.
I give 4th place to Suho, although many would say it's Luhan. I just really like the uniqueness and purity to Suho's voice; there's really nothing like it (at least in exo). He doesn't get as many chanced to show off his voice, but he stands out in Overdose and the rest of the Overdoes album. He does a really nice job!
Although I think Baekhyun is the best singer overall, I really want to also praise my bias Suho! He has a very soft and calming voice that is just lovely to listen to and I think he just really doesn't get enough opportunities to showcase his abilities. He's an extremely underrated vocalist, in my opinion
Chanyeol's voice surprised me so much when I first listened to it. I had assumed that he was another talentless rapper, and though his vocals cannot compare to Chen, Baekhyun, D.O., or even many K-POP Main Vocals in general, as a rapper, his vocals are definitely above average. He can sing well, and I think the most important part of his vocal talent is his musicianship, being able to play so many instruments.
Yes, Chanyeol is a rapper. No, best voice doesn't necessarily mean a strong singing voice. However, Chanyeol can sing too! Chanyeol is the best rapper of exo and really knows how to keep to the rhthym while showing off his versitile and deep voice. He also is a good, pretty strong singer.
Chanyeol, despite being labeled as a rapper, has a very stable and strong singing voice. His transitions from chest voice to falsetto are very smooth. He might not be the best rapper in the industry, but his singing is really good.
I like Chanyeol voice. It so good. When I hear his music I feel good
Chanyeol oppa is the best rapper
I can't believe Minseok is so low. His voice is very underrated he's probably the best singer in the group after the 3 mains (Chen,D.O and Baekhyun) and I'm glad he has been getting more solos lately cause it used to get me so frustrated he was ignored.
Xiumin isn't given nearly as much lines as he deserves nor credit for his singing ability. He has a strong voice, but it isn't as unique or charasmatic as his fellow memebers, which is probably why he is a sub-vocalist/rapper.
Xiumin has such a rich, honey-like voice which sounds so nice, I cannot imagine why he doesn't get to sing as much.
Xiumin has angelic voice. But I wonder why SM doesn't give much lines. His high note is no joke!
LuHan have a really good voice, he is highly praised for his voice full of color, perhaps EXO had no opportunity to show how high could come in a matter of notes, but in his movie "Back to 20" sings "Love Moving Forward" which reaches so far, would be his highest note. His voice often sounds very soft, sweet and angelic, but easily can show how strong you can be his voice. LuHan, fighting!
Luhan has a really unique voice in my opinion. In songs like History and What is love, his voice sounds quite strong and powerful. But he also sings in a very pure and soft way in ballads like Miracles in December and Moonlight. In terms of vocal skills, I think the cover he did for Lost Stars by Adam Levine really showcased his voice range and stability.
I'm just voting to post this comment...We miss you LuHan, but will always support you! Loved you in the new Running Man Show! (Season 3 Episodes 1-5 so far). Luhan does sing great, though I believe there are other members below him in the list who's vocals are more capable than his.
His voice is so sweet and peaceful. Whenever I hear his voice, I feel peaceful. His vocal is also really good.
He easily carries melody and emotion, and can express it to some extent, though as not as well as Baekhyun can. His voice range is smaller than the vocalists, but since he is the main dancer of EXO-M, and second best dancer in EXO, he is not as good at singing.
Lay is a pretty strong singer who has a very sweet voice. His voice fits with most songs and he does well with every line he's given. While he's not a main or lead vocalist, he's still a very talented singer.
What the hell? Yixing needs to be up there with Suho and Luhan. Have you heard his mini album? His vocals are so strong and beautiful. He is seriously underrated even by fans smh.
Lay is seriously underrated! Kai is my bias but, really, how is Lay below him?
Sehun to me is underrated for his talent as being an amazing dancer, cute and sexy, and and being a great singer and rapper!
Sehun may be quiet and not have much singing lines but his dancing is great!
Sehun has the best voice!
I like his attitude
Kai has a unique voice that is quite decently strong. Although he is a rapper, he showcases his voice well in raps and also with his singing lines. When he sings, it sounds deep yet also a bit airy. I don't quite know how to explain it but if you listen to him sing you would know.
His voice always make me happy it's so beautiful!
He is the best
I think Kris was the best rapper. In songs like Overdose, his voice, being harsh, but clear, best suits the song. That's why the rapper part (in the chinese version) of Overdose is my favorite part
His voice was damn good
Well, he's a rapper...
Tao is very good singer, he puts emotions in songs really good and his rap is best I ever heard. You can love all his song bc they are all so good and he has very special voice
I believe Tao is the best rapper in exo-m. He has a unique, tough voice that is perfect for his raps. He can also soften up his voice a bit to fit with the mood of the song.
I think Tao is the BEST RAPPER in the whole EXO..And besides,h is a very good martial artist too.. :) I think he is such a great singer too..His voice is soft and mellow when we let him sing..I think he must be in rank 6
He is most handsome, funny and childish 8n EXO. His rap is best and voice is too good . His way of singing is too nice
