TXT drops ‘Magic Island’ teaser video featuring Hueningkai


TXT dropped a teaser video for “Magic Island” featuring Hueningkai. The song is part of the group’s October full-length album, “The Dream Chapter: Magic,” an acoustic pop song that traces back to one’s carefree childhood.

In the red-tinged misty clip, the singer seems to be struggling, screaming and covering his ears with his hands. It wraps up with Hueningkai falling from the pain in his chest.

The new video follows previously released teaser clips featuring Yeonjun, Soobin and Beomgyu.

Behind-the-scenes footage on GOT7’s ‘Call My Name’ set


GOT7 revealed behind-the-scenes footage of the music video for its latest single, “You Calling My Name,” which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s World Albums Chart. In the clip, the bandmates can be seen sharing their thoughts about the song’s highlights, choreography and solo scenes.

“This is also our first time dancing in dress shoes, so it’s a bit awkward. I think we should get used to it after several more takes,” said Jinyoung.

The singers, all clad in dark leather suits and polished shoes, boasted solid teamwork on the set by showing perfect group choreography.

“We are like a rainbow. Each of us has different colors, and when we are together, it’s so nice to see all the colors combined,” said Jackson.

Serving up funky alt-R&B vibes, “You Calling My Name” is the title track of the act’s new EP, which features five other songs alongside the single. The track was released early this month.
