Korean soloist Chungha returned on Wednesday (Jan. 17) with the ‘90s-inspired dance track “Roller Coaster.”
The electropop song is the lead single off of Chungha’s Offset EP, and incorporates alt-R&B and groovy strings to propel the singer’s breathy vocals. The song reflects on the emotions of a relationship, with the 21-year-old comparing the ups and downs of romance to the titular “Roller Coaster” ride.
The music video for “Roller Coaster” bounces between multiple versions of Chungha as a representation of the song’s meaning, alternating between a wide-eyed, sweater-wearing innocent to an early ‘00s-inspired dancing queen and day-glo hued club dancer. As far as K-pop music videos go, it's a bit basic and overpowers with the vibrant aesthetics, but by choosing to forgo an intense plot "Roller Coaster" puts Chungha's sensuous dancing front and center.
