Its a good day to be a Monbebe.
The English language version of Play It Cool with Steve Aoki has dropped and, unsurprisingly, its as much as a bop as the Korean version.
Steve Aoki said: Monsta X is one of those powerhouse groups that sets the bar very high. Their voices stay with you long after the song is over, and on this track they sang so profoundly that all we had to do was focus on the story we were telling.
I really believe in todays world that we have redefined what love and relationships look like, so I think that this song is one that many people can relate to.
The original version of Play It Cool was included on Monsta Xs fourth studio album Take. 2 We Are Here, which was released in February.
The K-pop group – made up of Shownu, IM, Jooheon, Hyungwon, Wonho, Minhyuk and Kihyun – said: It was such an honour to work with Steve Aoki. He is truly an amazing artist and producer. We love how Play It Cool turned out at the end so much that we included it in our recent album – Take 2 We Are Here!
After the great success of the Korean version, we cant wait to see the responses to the English version from all over the world. This collab is a gift from us to our monbebe , for always taking care of us and keeping it cool. Thank you.
We reckon the Monbebe will be pretty pleased.
Aoki is one of K-pops most prolific collaborators, having previously worked with BTS on the Mic Drop Remix and The Truth Untold.
Play It Cool is available to stream and download from today.
