K-pop girl group WJSN wants people to stay at their magical carnival in the music video for their new single “La La Love.”
Released today (Jan. 8) as the lead track of their WJ Stay? EP, “La La Love” is a dramatic synth pop song that features echoing vocal layering and complex tonal shifts. It follows the releases of last year’s “Dreams Come True” and “Save Me, Save You.”
The new track continues to display the dedication of WJSN, also known as Cosmic Girls, to a distinct, shimmering brand of dance music that thrives on twinkling, retro-inspired synths and quirky production choices, such as the straightforward, slightly melodic, speaking tone featured both in the intro and outro of the song as well as the rap portions.
The captivating music video for “La La Land” brings the members of the girl group to a carnival where they star as performers, dancing along to the song with a classic circus tent as their backdrop, serving up cotton candy, performing acrobatics, and more. It’s a bit less magically-inspired than some of their other music videos, but keeps to the group’s ethereal, fantastical styling they’ve displayed in the past.
“La La Love” features WJSN as a 10-member act rather than a 13-member girl group, as three members are absent from the song’s release reportedly due to their work in the Chinese entertainment industry.
WJ Stay? Is WJSN’s sixth EP since their start in 2016, and features a total of seven tracks, including album closer “Ujung,” which was co-composed by member Dawon. Rapper Exy is credited as a lyricist on each track.
