Monsta X are back again with another aesthetically pleasing music video, out today through a Vevo Premiere; where some of the members popped in to chat with MONBEBE. The single “You Can’t Hold My Heart” is off their English Album ALL ABOUT LUV, and quickly became one of fewer than 10 songs pushed by Korean acts, performing in any language, to reach the Pop Songs chart [Forbes]. Between the special effects, clean-cut looks, and powerful vocals, it’s hard to take your eyes off this video.
Not only does ALL ABOUT LUV mark the first all English-language album released by a K-pop group ever, but it also debuted at No.5 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making it only the 3rd K-Pop group to chart within the top 10.
The album garnered more attention than ever upon release, and continues to, from places such as NPR, ET, Access, AP, Forbes, Consequence Of Sound, Billboard, and TIME who stated ““You Can’t Hold My Heart” is a change of pace: en emo pop-rock track with guitar backing. It’s sweet but salty, and tightly executed with its nods to rock. And it’s a sign of dissolving borders — across language, across genre, across culture.”
Keep up with the band on social media, as they gear up for their next Korean mini-album, FANTASIA, set for release May 11th, 2020.
“With “All About Luv,” Monsta X has proven that K-pop transcends language barriers. And that’s something to be happy about.” – Variety
