Aespa is a k-pop girl group of four singers, Karina, Giselle, Winter and Ningning, who have released their latest single titled “Next Level” through the agency SM Entertainment, and together with it, a futuristic very creative music video, in which they transform into animated virtual avatars doing a hip-hop dance choreography. The single also comes with English subtitles, so the fans from other countries can understand easily.
A remake of the song of the same name from the official soundtrack of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the tune’s lyrics continue the story about a virtual world called Kwangya that was first explained in Aespa’s debut song “Black Mamba”, they explain that since their first song was well received, they decided to show lots of great music and a more powerful performance with “Next Level”.
Aespa was named as the newest global ambassadors for Givenchy in February, the brand’s creative director Matthew M. Williams explains that the artists have a “firm personality and style”, and also added that he was “overwhelmed by the energy each member had”.
The group launched in November and created avatars for each member to better explain the fictional world where they came from, and in the debut song, the girls discover that what stops them to keep connected with their avatars is a snake called ‘Black Mamba’, with the “Next Level” video continuing the avatar theme.
