Pop music worlds collided with the release of “One More Time (Otra Vez)” from Super Junior and Reik. The two legacy boy bands, representative of South Korea and Mexico respectively, teamed up on the Latin pop-flavored dance track, released Monday (Oct. 8) on Super Junior’s One More Time EP.
On “One More Time," the eight active members of Super Junior -- several are absent due to mandatory military service and other circumstances, and Heechul only participated minimally due to ongoing health concerns -- are joined by the trio Reik to serve up a rhythmic, sleek dance track that thrives on the diverse vocal tones each man has to offer. With lilting strings driving its reggaeton melody, the single is a new, K-pop take on timeless Latin pop sounds.
“One More Time” is the first Korean single from Super Junior since the return of vocalist Ryeowook from the South Korean military earlier this year. His vocals were last heard on 2015’s “Magic.”
