K-Pop Queens Unite For An Epic New Single

Girl power!

If you’re a multi-stan, then you’ll feel as if Christmas came early because top K-pop girl groups IVE, aespa, and (G)I-DLE will be releasing a collab single soon!

These girl groups are known for their addictive songs paired with fun dance challenges on TikTok. Some of their recent hits include Baddie (IVE), Better Things (aespa), and Queencard ((G)I-DLE).

We wish that all of the girls could be part of the song, but South Korean YouTube channel M:USB announced that only one member from each of the three girl groups will be involved in the project. We’re keeping our eyes peeled for the official lineup, so stay tuned.

But what do we know so far? It’s reported that the three chosen artists will be working together on the song titled NOBODY. It’s made in collaboration with producer El CAPITXN from HYBE which is the agency of phenomenal artists such as BTS and TXT (fun fact: El CAPITXN is also a close friend of BTS’ SUGA). Lyricist Seo Ji Eum (who has worked with NCT 127, Red Velvet, and more) is also part of this special collab.

This isn’t a random or ordinary collaboration because it will be part of the K-pop scene’s efforts to support South Korea’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo in Busan which is an event that will not only boost the country’s tourism but will also powerfully serve as a bridge between various governments, international organisations, and citizens.

A year ago, BTS’ history-making free concert (which was attended by thousands of fans on-site and was live-streamed by millions online) was hosted in Busan to promote itself as a potential city for this super large-scale event.

This time around, South Korea is once again hoping that this unconventional collab (girl groups and music industry professionals from different entertainment agencies coming together) will represent its solidarity for its World Expo bid.

Who are your bets for this unit? We don’t have to wait long to know, so mark your calendars because the collab will be out on 16 November at 6PM KST (or 5PM SGT).
