The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain system in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The fountain’s performances take place daily, accompanied by light and music.

“Power” is the first K-pop song selected for the fountain’s performance. The performance repertoire has usually consisted of traditional Arab music or songs with worldwide acclaim, such as Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and “Thriller” by Michael Jackson.
