MONSTA X Hits Hard in “X-Phenomenon”
Monbebes have received an unparalleled treat from MONSTA X to beat the Monday blues.
The world’s favorite septet dropped their highly anticipated Japanese single “X-Phenomenon” on July 15 to mark the beginning of their upcoming second full album Phenomenon. The full album will be released on August 22 in three different versions, just to bless their fans in abundance.
Whenever a MONSTA X track pops up on our playlist, we are guaranteed a hefty ride thanks to the powerful rap line and impactful vocalists; the exact same happens with their new single. The bombastic track begins with an alarming intro, leading us to the blasting EDM track. As the electrifying beat suggests, the members flaunt with pride and boast about their ability to conquer across borders like a “viral infection.” The piercing music is split into versions for the verse and chorus, as if two different songs are fused together to make one. The arrangement’s multiple shifts and drops might sound confusing at first listen, but it is completely capable of drawing you closer into the addictively catchy chorus. “I can’t stop Phenomenon” becomes our slogan of the week, as the rap line marks their mighty presence while the vocalists seek our attention with their crystal clear high notes. As the ultimatum, the marvel seven keep us bound with their confidence, calling themselves the wild ones and proving it with this banger.
