SuperM’s debut full-length album, Super One, issued by SM Entertainment/Capitol Records, is out now and the group have unveiled the epic music video for their new single, “One (Monster & Infinity)”, which you can check out below.
With Super One, the chart-topping K-pop supergroup delivers a supremely positive message: “We all have the power of each (One) as a special (Super) existence, so let’s overcome together with the power of (One).”
The release follows 2019’s min-album ‘SuperM’ EP, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
On the cathartic “One (Monster & Infinity),” SuperM encourages listeners to overcome whatever hardships they face and move on to a higher place – infinity. The hybrid remix song was created by combining the songs “Infinity” and “Monster,” which can also be found on the 15-track Super One.
At a global press conference held ahead of the album release on September 24, SuperM also officially announced their collaboration with Marvel Entertainment – one of the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment companies, built on a library of more than 8,000 characters. The project features a SuperM x Marvel limited edition package collection.
Soo-Man Lee – founder of Korea’s largest entertainment company, SM Entertainment – says of the project, “It’s exciting to be collaborating with an innovative company such as Marvel. We look forward to additional future projects with Marvel.”
Additionally, with Super One, SuperM becomes the first K-pop group to release an album in Dolby Atmos. This immersive version of the album can be streamed on Amazon Music HD with Echo Studio, or via TIDAL HiFi with compatible Android devices, soundbars, TVs and AVRs enabled with Dolby Atmos.
Super One also includes previous singles “Tiger Inside” and “100.” Billboard praised the “ferocious” “Tiger Inside” while E! observed, “The K-Pop supergroup continues to come for all our throats, unleashing their titular jungle cats on this heavy-hitting track that reminds they are not to be trifled with.” Rolling Stone said, “The music video matches the kinetic, aggressive energy of the song.”
With the October 2019 release of The 1st Mini Album ‘SuperM’ EP, SuperM made history as the first Asian artist to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The EP also topped the Artist 100, Top Album Sales, Digital Album, World Album, Top Current Album, Internet Album and World Digital Song Sales charts. In early 2020, the Los Angeles Times observed, “‘The Avengers of K-pop’ comparisons come up often, but maybe instead think of the 1992 U.S. Olympic basketball ‘Dream Team,’ with seven-part harmonies and two-hour sets of impeccable choreography.”
