Just as the music shifts NCT Dream away from their earlier bright style, so too does the music video for “Go,” which moves the group even further away from their playful side and turns them into straight-up players. Blacklight and day-glo hues fill the video, which shows the members of NCT Dream stirring up trouble and reveling in their youth through the streets of Los Angeles. The song's various tempos and rhythms serve as a forum for a powerful dance performance from the Dream members, including a fist-waving movement that recalls those featured both in “We Young” and “Boss.” The video ends after the group has had its fun, popping wheelies on bikes and partying it up.
The third part of NCT’s ongoing release series following last month’s “Boss” and “Baby Don’t Stop” by two lineups of the rotational group, NCT U. “Go” similarly draws on the dynamic hip-hop leanings featured in those two tracks though emphasizes a heavier dance sound. It is NCT Dream’s fifth single following their debut track "Chewing Gum" in 2016 and last year's "My First and Last," "We Young,” and the Christmastime "Joy."
NCT Dream is an age-determined group within the larger NCT unit and consists of all the teen-age members of NCT besides Lucas, one of the three new members that joined NCT in 2018 along with Kun and Jungwoo. (Lucas, who is 19 and several months older than NCT Dream's oldest member Mark, has expressed his apparent desire to join the group, which has led to multitudes of memes from the K-pop act's fans.)
“Go” is part of NCT’s larger NCT 2018 project, and will be one of several singles by NCT units featured on an album reportedly out later this this month.
