Wrapping up a banner year marked by history-making accolades and achievements, K-pop super group and worldwide phenomenon Monsta X reveal their brand new single “Middle of the Night” today.
Along with the track, the group also reveals the music video for the song. Watch it HERE:
For the past four years, Monsta X have toured and attracted a massive international fan base in the United States and across the world. The single takes another step towards merging them into the pop scene as the first Korean group to seamlessly integrate fully.
“Middle of the Night” illuminates yet another side of these sensations. Hinging on a hummable groove, glistening production and thick beats reverberate throughout the dance-driven ballad alongside impressive vocal performances. The energy manifests most clearly in the falsetto-punctuated hook, “Lock me away in the middle of the night…you got me.”
Most importantly, the single paves the way for the arrival of Monsta X’s anxiously awaited new album All About Luv, releasing quite appropriately on Valentine’s Day February 14, 2020. The pre-order just went live today HERE. All About Luv will be the first all English-language album released by a K-pop group.
About the album, Monsta X said, “We are super excited about our new English album! It’s a Valentine’s Day gift to all of our MONBEBE who are standing by our side day and night. This album talks about relationships and the things that we are all dealing with on a daily basis. We hope that our MONBEBE all over the world will like it, and spread the word, after all, it’s all about luv.”
“Middle of the Night” arrives as the fifth song to precede the band’s next full-length. Already, previously released tracks have put up nearly 50 million streams, including “WHO DO U LOVE?” [feat. French Montana], “WHO DO U LOVE?” (will.i.am Remix), “SOMEONE’S SOMEONE,” and “Love U.”
Monsta X will be stateside this month to play a string of radio holiday shows across the country.

Monsta X consistently made history in the U.S. throughout this past year. With “WHO DO U LOVE?”, they became “only the second K-Pop group ever to enter the Top 40 Airplay Chart.” By way of an historic performance at Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, they emerged as “the first male K-Pop group to perform at a major music festival in the United States,” and stood out as the first K-pop group in history to hit the stage at iHeartRadio Music Festival the same day. Additionally, they made their United States television debut on Good Morning America, followed by electric performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Ellen DeGeneres Show and became the “first K-pop group to perform on the Teen Choice Awards.” Not to mention, Monsta X charted on the Billboard Social 50 for over a year, remaining one of the biggest social media bands in the world. They also sold out their U.S. arena tour—which culminated at fever pitch during a triumphant headliner at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
