MONSTA X RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘WHO DO U LOVE?’ FEATURING FRENCH MONTANA

After teasing its impending arrival, K-pop supergroup and worldwide phenomenon, Monsta X, unveil their brand new single “WHO DO U LOVE?” feat. French Montana today. Billboard calling it “An alt-R&B song, “Who Do U Love?” demands to be danced to as it is driven by a blend of sleek bass, snappy beats, and shimmering synths that create an addicting, groovy melody propelled by a rhythmic choral hook. The display of sultry smooth vocals, including a display of harmonized falsetto, from members of the South Korean septet contrast with the rap bridge featuring French Montana.”

The English-language anthem highlights the interplay of their powerhouse voices over a hummable bass line, percussive snaps, shimmering keys, and a danceable groove. It swings from bright global pop into a sizzling hip-hop cameo courtesy of French Montana before the hard-hitting hypnotic hook: “Who do u love? Is it him or me? Cause I can’t take the pressure anymore. Who do u love? Girl, it’s killing me. If you can’t say that I’m the one for sure, then I’m walking out the door.”

Additionally, Monsta X and French Montana shot a big screen-worthy music video together, dropping hot on the tune’s heels very soon! The track is also slated to impact Pop radio on July 15th.

Next up, Monsta X make their North American television debut when they perform “WHO DO U LOVE?” live on ABC’s Good Morning America Thursday August 1, 2019.

The group continue to make headlines. 2019 has been nothing short of a breakthrough year as they sold out arenas worldwide, racked up tens of millions of streams, and attracted unanimous praise. Forbes recently predicted, “Monsta X are making moves toward an overseas crossover.”

Right now, they’re in the midst of the seventeen-date “we are here” world tour. It spans Bangkok, Australia, and Europe before touching down stateside for six dates starting in Dallas, TX July 25 at Verizon Theatre. Fittingly, the jaunt concludes at one of the nation’s most hallowed venues, The Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 10.
