In the midst of making history and breaking records, K-pop super group and worldwide phenomenon Monsta X share a new song entitled “LOVE U” and a powerhouse remix of their recent international hit “WHO DO U LOVE?” featuring French Montana by none other than the legendary will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas.
“LOVE U” highlights the inimitable vocal interplay between the group’s members as hypnotic harmonies bounce over buoyant production. Everything builds towards the cheeky, clever, and catchy chorus, “I really wanna love you, but I can’t say the word I want to, because they won’t play it on the radio, but I know you know.” Meanwhile, will.i.am adds a new dimension altogether to “WHO DO U LOVE?” Not only does he flip the beat, but he provides his own slick and swaggering verse. In addition to clocking a cumulative total of 22 million streams, the original has been rising the chart at Top 40 Radio heading towards Top 25. This achievement cemented Monsta X as “only the second K-Pop group ever to enter the Top 40 Airplay Chart.”
Alongside the two new tracks, Monsta X has a monumental weekend ahead as they become “the first male K-Pop group to perform at a major music festival in the United States,” gracing the Fremont Stage of Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, September 21. They will also be the first K-pop group ever at Life Is Beautiful and will also be the first K-pop group in history to hit the stage at iHeartRadio Music Festival the same day.
On September 25, they perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Stay tuned for an unforgettable performance! These shows also follow a sold-out U.S. tour that concluded with pandemonium during a triumphant headline show at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
They have also just been announced as official TogetherBand ambassadors. #TOGETHERBAND champions the UNITED NATION’s 17 Goals for a sustainable future.
