K-pop septet GOT7 released their new single “Lullaby” on Monday (Sept. 17) -- all four versions of it.
The boy band released their latest song in not one or two or three languages, but in Korean, Mandarin, Spanish and English. A funky house and synth-pop hybrid, the track bounces around between groovy verses before exploding with its bass-heavy chorus, creating a modern-day “Lullaby” as the group’s vocalists let loose with soaring belts, especially Youngjae and Jinyoung.
During a press conference in Seoul on Monday, the group explained that they released the quartet of versions as a nod to their international fanbase, known as iGOT7 or Ahgase. “We further realized the importance and love of fans all around the world during our world tour,” said Jinyoung. “We do read comments on the Internet, but feeling the fans’ energy at the concert is completely different. We felt like we could communicate directly with fans by speaking in their languages, so we decided to record our title track in four different languages.”
