T-ara is eyeing the clubs worldwide with their latest release. The K-pop girl group has dropped both an English and Korean version of their new EDM-inspired single “Sugar Free.”
With its multiple drops and easy-to-sing-along-to melody, “Sugar Free” falls into the big room sub-genre of electro-house music. The track recalls recent works by David Guetta (“Bad,” “Shot Me Down”) and Martin Garrix (“Animals”).
The English version comes via a new remix album released Wednesday, EDM CLUB Sugar Free Edition. The 16-track set comes with the original English and Korean versions and six remixes of each rendition. It follows the group’s And&End EP (released Sept. 11) that included the single and four new K-pop tracks. “Sugar Free” is currently at No. 4 on Billboard’s World Digital Songs while And&End is No. 12 on the World Albums charts dated Sept. 27, 2014.
“Sugar Free” marks the first time T-ara has recorded in English as a full group. T-ara N4, a splinter quartet of the girl group, told Billboard last year they were discussing collaborations with the likes of Chris Brown and other U.S. stars for a potential stateside debut after opening for the R&B singer in concert.
