Steve Aoki wasn't kidding when he said more collaborations with K-pop groups were on the way in 2019. Following the success of last year's joint endeavor with BTS titled "Waste It On Me," the L.A. DJ/producer teamed up with MONSTA X on "Play It Cool" last month. Now, he's revealed that an English version will come out at the end of the week.
The Korean version of "Play It Cool" was track #4 on MONSTA X's second studio-length album, Take.2 We Are Here, which came out last month. "It was such an honor and pleasure to work with [Steve],” the seven-member boy band had told Entertainment Tonight. “We are huge fans of his work, and we were so excited to find out that he is a fan of MONSTA X as well.”
MONSTA X released their debut EP, Trespass, in 2015. Two years later their first studio-length album arrived in the form of The Clan Pt. 2.5: The Final Chapter, which consisted of ten songs.
