Girl group aespa released its new single “Next Level” on Monday, according to its agency SM Entertainment.
To better explain the new song and to share their ambitions for the future, the four members gathered for their first-ever press conference on Monday prior to the release of the song in the evening.
“We are excited to present even more powerful performances this time,” said member Ningning, adding that the new track was inspired by hip hop dance.
The single is a remake of “Next Level,” which featured on the soundtrack of Hollywood film “Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.” The lyrics tell the story of how the four members are taking a trip together to reconnect with their avatars.
The group debuted in November with single “Black Mamba” and unveiled avatars for each member in order to explain the fictional world where the members came from. In the debut song, the members discover that what keeps them from staying connected to their avatars is a snake called Black Mamba.
