Nct 127 releases ay-yo via 360 magazine.

NCT 127 + AY-YO

Today, K-Pop phenomenon NCT 127 have released “Ay-Yo,” a repackaged version of their fourth studio album “질주 (2 Baddies)[우남W2] .” “Ay-Yo” features three brand-new tracks, including its title track by the same name. The physical album is set to release on March 3rd in the US.

Today’s repackage release features a total of 15 tracks including 12 tracks from the 4th album along with 3 new tracks “Ay-Yo”, “DJ”, and “Skyscraper (摩天樓[우남W3] ; 마천루)”. Title track “Ay-Yo” is a hip-hop dance track with a core message of moving forward with intention in the midst of uncertainty, as the band continues to establish the values they carry with them. Additionally, “DJ” is a funky up-tempo track that details how the members become DJs themselves, gifting special moments with their own-selected playlists. “Skyscraper (摩天樓; 마천루)” is a powerful hip-hop track detailing ambition, overcoming limits and climbing to the top. With the continued participation of famous writers from the 4th album “질주 (2 Baddies)” such as KENZIE, Dem Jointz, Andreas Öberg, and producer Simon Petré, the album is further enhanced by the additional rapping talent of members TAEYONG and MARK on “DJ” and “Skyscraper (摩天樓; 마천루)”.

The repackage arrives four months following the original release of “질주 (2 Baddies)” this past September. The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, making the group only the second K-Pop artist in history to land three albums in the Top 5. The album was praised for its versatility, with Billboard writing, “The album’s sound, meanwhile, shows off the idols’ eclectic versatility as they run through R&B, pop, electronic dance and hip-hop-leaning sounds,” and NYLON claiming, “They’re charismatic and confident, and they’re not afraid to get loud with it.”

NCT 127 recently completed an arena tour across U.S. and South America. The engagements included stops across the United States, Chile, Columbia, and Mexico, as well as three back-to-back shows in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Just this past week, the group also hosted a special virtual event and concert experience on Roblox, a global immersive 3D platform that reimagines the way people come together to connect, create and express themselves. In celebration of their special anniversary, “127 Day,” The NCT 127 Concert Experience included a free interactive virtual concert performance and additional experiences including featured avatar drops. The event marked the first concert in a dedicated K-pop experience on the platform, as well as the largest ever official group performance by any band on Roblox, with nine band members performing virtually. The NCT 127 World experience has so far drawn over 4 million total visits.

TAEYANG × JIMIN

Global superstars TAEYANG (of BIGBANG fame) and Jimin of BTS come together for one of the most anticipated and unexpected K-Pop releases of the 2020s. Listen to “VIBE (feat. Jimin of BTS)” HERE via THEBLACKLABEL/Interscope Records

The magnitude of the collaboration cannot be understated. Not only is it a cross-generational release uniting superstars of different eras, it also connects two artists from the biggest boy bands of all time. If anyone can live up to that hype, it’s TAEYANG. The BIGBANG legend and lead singer has inspired generations of K-Pop artists.

It’s impossible to talk about K-Pop’s global ascent without discussing BIGBANG, one of the most influential and decorated acts in the late 2000s and 2010s. They were the first to gain global recognition, performing at stadiums worldwide for millions of fans in record-breaking numbers and have influenced countless acts in the genre for their various musical styles and self-production. Dubbed the “Kings of K-Pop,” BIGBANG is one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, winning over 100 awards, being on the New York Times “Best Concerts List”, and winning “Best Worldwide Act” at the MTV Europe Awards.

In addition to making history with the band, TAEYANG is also an accomplished solo artist, releasing four massively successful albums including two that have gone #1 on Billboard’s World Albums chart with a string of hits including “Eyes, Nose, Lips” which won “Song of the Year” on all the major Korean award shows.

As both TAEYANG and Jimin are vocalists with outstanding dancing ability, their collaboration is effortlessly smooth and flawless. TAEYANG and Jimin both partook in the song composition along with TEDDY, a long-time collaborator and Producer for TAEYANG and BIGBANG. TEDDY is also the Founder of THEBLACKLABEL. Also participating is an established lineup of Songwriters and Producers in Kush, Vince, and 24 from THEBLACKLABEL.

The track is accompanied by a suitably dazzling visual, which showcases the duo’s slick dance moves and undeniable charisma. Watch it HERE

With “VIBE”, TAEYANG and Jimin add another undeniable anthem to their already glittering discographies while celebrating this unprecedented moment in K-Pop history.

NCT DREAM’s THE MOVIE

Tickets are on sale now at www.NCTDreamTheMovie.com for NCT DREAM’s first movie, NCT DREAM THE MOVIE : In A DREAM. The trailer for the highly anticipated movie was released HERE and opens with NCT DREAM’s “Déjà Vu” and the sight of the band taking the stage at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul packed with NCTzens (NCT DREAM’s official fan community).

Presented by SM Entertainment, Trafalgar Releasing, and CJ 4DPLEX Inc., NCT DREAM THE MOVIE : In A DREAM is coming to cinemas worldwide on Wednesday, November 30 and Saturday, December 3, with a consecutive multiple day run in South Korea beginning on November 30, and a theatrical release in Japan scheduled for December 6.

The movie showcases NCT DREAM’s live performances, previously only seen in concerts, the group backstage, their preparations for the concert, and the feverish atmosphere of the Olympic Stadium. Additionally, the event features a special gift for NCTzens of exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with the seven members of the group (MarkRenjunJenoHaechanJaeminChenleJisung) where they share candid stories and their thoughts and feelings.

NCT DREAM THE MOVIE:

In A DREAM features the “NCT DREAM TOUR ‘THE DREAM SHOW2 : In A DREAM” concert (hereafter referred to as “THE DREAM SHOW2”), the second concert of NCT DREAM held at the Olympic Stadium in September 2022. “THE DREAM SHOW2” was NCT DREAM’s second solo concert in just six years since their debut, which caused a stir at the Olympic Main Stadium, the largest concert hall in Korea, as it is called the “Stage of Dreams” for all artists.

The two-day concert sold out immediately, with NCT DREAM proving its potential as a superstar artist by mobilizing 135,000 audience online and offline. As the second concert was held after two years and 10 months since their first concert at Jangchung Municipal Stadium in 2019, “THE DREAM SHOW2” was a very special experience not only for the NCTzens, but also for NCT DREAM themselves, especially with the participation of “All 7 DREAMS” in a concert for the first time.

K-pop boy band Seventeen has a new hit song announced via 360 MAGAZINE

SEVENTEEN – _WORLD

K-pop stage-breakers SEVENTEEN joined forces with the English singer Anne-Marie for a new version of their single “_WORLD (Feat. Anne-Marie),” released at midnight ET. 

“_WORLD” is the lead single from SEVENTEEN’s latest album SECTOR 17 released on July 18. Amplified by Anne-Marie’s plain-spoken vocals, the new version of the urban R&B track endearingly delivers the sentiment of hope and excitement in entering a ‘new world’ built for ‘you and me.’ The underbar that prefaces the title asks the listener to also imagine and define their own ideal world. 

SECTOR 17 scored SEVENTEEN’s highest charting on the Billboard 200, debuting at No. 4. Like many of their previous hits, the band’s main producer and leader of their vocal unit WOOZI took part in producing the album as well as the lead single “_WORLD,” credited for both its lyrics and composition.

SEVENTEEN are currently touring across North America for their headline tour ‘BE THE SUN.’ After their action-packed shows in Vancouver, Seattle, Oakland, Los Angeles, Houston, Fort Worth and Chicago, the K-pop supergroup will bring their must-see show to Washington DC next. Shows in Atlanta, Belmont Park, Toronto and Newark are set to follow.

In addition to chart records, a world tour and a global collaboration, the 13-piece act continues to blaze through multiple milestones with three nods for the MTV Video Music Awards slated for this weekend. SEVENTEEN are nominated for Best New Artist, Best K-Pop and PUSH Performance of the Year.

Seventeen – Face the Sun

K-pop stage-breakers SEVENTEEN are back with their 4th studio album Face the Sun. 

Arriving 2 years and 8 months after their last full-length album, Face the Sun taps into the 13-piece act’s candid ruminations on their fears and aspirations in reaching for greater heights. 

By likening their greatest fear and simultaneously their ultimate goal to the ‘Sun,’ SEVENTEEN boldly express their determination to venture forth through the lead single “HOT.” The accompanying video for the hip-hop based track is packed with intricate motifs and snippets of the song’s riveting choreography, raising anticipation for the high-caliber performances of the track to come.

Including “HOT” and the act’s first English single “Darl+ing” released in April, the new album consists of 9 tracks in total: “DON QUIXOTE,” “March,” “Domino,” “Shadow,” “‘bout you,” “IF you leave me” and “Ash.” As one of the team’s main producers and the leader of its vocal team, WOOZI co-wrote all 9 tracks.

Face the Sun set an all-time high pre-order sales record for SEVENTEEN early on, surpassing the 2 million mark a week ahead of its release. 

The K-pop performance powerhouse will showcase live performances of selected tracks from the album during their comeback show on HYBE Labels’ official YouTube channel at 7 PM KST on May 28.

About SEVENTEEN:

Racking up 2 billion streams and selling 10 million albums, SEVENTEEN—comprised of S.COUPS, JEONGHAN, JOSHUA, JUN, HOSHI, WONWOO, WOOZI, THE 8, MINGYU, DK, SEUNGKWAN, VERNON and DINO—has rocketed to the forefront of the music scene fueled by a fiercely independent spirit and a nonpareil in-house creative ecosystem. The group’s innovative structure hinges on the interplay of three units: hip-hop, vocal, and performance. Living up to the title of “K-pop Stage-breakers,” SEVENTEEN has unassumingly made history and become one of the biggest groups ever due to their world-class synchronization, jaw-dropping choreography, and tight teamwork. Moving at an unparalleled pace, the K-pop stage-breakers made their U.S. television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden in January 2021 and followed it with unforgettable performances on The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and MTV’s Fresh Out Live. SEVENTEEN’s latest EP Attacca debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart and No. 13 on the Billboard 200. It sold over 1.3 million copies in the first week of release, earning the K-pop superstars the “quintuple million seller” title as it joins their last four consecutive releases—An Ode, Heng:garæ and ; [Semicolon], Your Choice—in selling over 1 million copies each.

Asian American content group NSB via 360 Magazine

NSB

North Star Boys: Asian-American Content Group 

From time to time, one comes across a galaxy of new talents. NSB is the acronym for North Star Boys. The name for the group derives from the essence of The North Star, known as the anchor of the northern sky. Those who follow it often find new direction, leading to a certain destination. 

Since ancient times, many Asians have followed the North Star as it represents both a beacon of inspiration and hope for the future. Thus, Oliver Moy and Sebastian Moy commend the advice of their mother. Mama Moy encouraged them to follow their ‘North Star;’ and she was convinced it would lead them to their dreams. Oliver maintains that, “I always wanted to be an inspiration and a voice for other Asian Americans, so I thought it was a perfect idea to call us the guys from North Star.”

Conjured by the Moy brothers, NSB is the first Asian American mixed media septet. The group consists of seven cronies: the Moy brothers, Ryan Nguyen, Regie Macalino, Kane Ratan, Darren Liang and Justin Phan. Furthermore, upon meeting Tyler Bray, at an industry mixer, he immediately witnessed potential and signed them to his management company. After all, they became an overnight internet sensation adored by millions.

Listen to NSB on 360 MAG Podcast.

Watch you are my star video.

Oliver wrote and produced the highly anticipated debut single, you are my star. This song is a hit! Approximately composed in 30 minutes, he recalls, “It was quite easy to write about how I feel at this point in my life, so after putting it together I went straight to recording on a computer.” Upon its release, it achieved instant success after being marketed by HitCo Entertainment–an imprint co-founded by L.A. Reid and Charles Goldstuck. The label’s immediate directives: artist development, innovativeness and multi-platform content creation. Lastly, HitCo possesses an impressive roster: Big Boi (Outkast), Dinah Jane (Fifth Harmony), Dixie D’Amelio as well as French Montana.  

Following the release, NSB performed at The Roxy Theatre and graced the cover of TIDAL’s Global Pop. Moreover, the ensemble was listed on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Amazon Music’s Breakthrough Pop playlists. 

Soon after their inauguration (August 2021), they quickly achieved notoriety–largely attributed to their charisma, content fabrication and fan engagement. 

Six months later, they far exceeded expectations and attained millions of followers across various social platforms: TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. 

During their 360 chat, NSB acknowledges Tyler as an extremely successful enterpriser. Subsequent to being saluted by Forbes 30 Under 30, Tyler wanted to formulate a collective of like-minded individuals whose sole directive is to “inspire and be the Asian representation in the media that they did not see growing up.” 

Holding firm to their convictions, NSB hosted their inaugural meet and greet in Times Square for their devoted fans, affectionately referred to as Stars. “We had a great impact, because we expected 200 people to come and more than 1,500 came,” they tell us.

Behind the album release, NSB plans to embark on a major city concert series in The Big Apple, Chicago, Dallas as well as a world tour that kicks off in the Philippines.

Seventeen – Darl+ing VIDEO

Watch HERE.

K-pop stage-breakers SEVENTEEN just dropped their first English language single “Darl+ing” at midnight ET. Arriving ahead of their full-length album to be released in May, the single opens a new, heartfelt chapter in the band’s story. 

Built on a sweet-sounding but addictive chorus and an enthralling line of synths, “Darl+ing” is an eloquent expression of the 13-piece act’s admiration for the idea of ‘togetherness’. Like many of their previous hits, “Darl+ing” is also a self-produced track. The leader of the band’s vocal unit WOOZI took part in producing the single, credited for both its lyrics and composition.

A cinematic depiction of a new chapter in SEVENTEEN’s journey, the accompanying music video is packed with ethereal aesthetics and hints about stories to follow. The video shows the thirteen members traverse past an idyllic world that overflows with light and venture into a state of darkness, piquing curiosity around the forthcoming full-length album.

As global fans welcome their highly anticipated return, the K-pop superstars are slated to present their very first performance of “Darl+ing” at 5 PM ET today on MTV Fresh Out Live.

SEVENTEEN’s collaborative project with Apple is also being launched in time for the release. The K-pop creatives and Apple embarked on the first K-pop Today at Apple Remix session today in Korea. During the 60-minute sessions to be held initially in Apple stores in Korea and then across Asia, attendees will discover more about the band’s creative process and be guided to create a one-of-a-kind remix of “Darl+ing” using GarageBand and Apple’s devices.

ScreenX allows moviegoers to go beyond the frame of the movie screen by expanding the center image of feature films and pre-show advertising to create an immersive, panoramic, 270-degree format that projects onto three theater walls. To date, there are over 383 ScreenX auditoriums including 4DX Screen around the world in 38 countries. ScreenX was recognized as the “Innovator of the Year” at ShowEast 2018.

Jonas Brothers retook the world by storm in 2019 with the surprise release of their critically acclaimed and widely successful single “Sucker” following a six-year hiatus. The triple-platinum single debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100, becoming the first #1 for the band and the first #1 debut from a group this century. The band went on to release Chasing Happiness, an Amazon Original film documenting the brothers’ rise and return to music, before going on to deliver their third #1 album with the arrival of their platinum-selling Happiness Begins (Republic Records). The trio continued to soar with their sold-out “Happiness Begins Tour,” selling over 1.2 million tickets.  

In the wake of Happiness Begins, the band garnered a bevy of awards, including three trophies in the categories of “Top Duo/Group,” “Top Radio Songs Artist,” and “Top Radio Song” for “Sucker” at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, a 2019 MTV VMA for “Best Pop Video,” “Best Duo/Group” at the 2020 iHeart Music Awards, and two Teen Choice Awards, including the prestigious “Decade Award.” They also picked up American Music Awards nominations, a coveted Grammy nomination, and more. Jonas Brothers only accelerated this momentum in 2021. They teamed up with Marshmello for “Leave Before You Love Me,” claiming a Top 10 spot at Top 40 radio for six weeks and tallying millions of streams and views. On its heels, they presented “Remember This” in partnership with NBCUniversal for the Tokyo Olympics. The song notably paved the way for the 44-date REMEMBER THIS Tour with support from Kelsea Ballerini. In between sold-out shows, they released their new single, “Who’s in Your Head” which has skyrocketed up radio charts and amped up excitement for much more to come from Jonas Brothers.
