On August 9th, boy group THE BOYZ released the music video to their latest comeback, ‘THRILL RIDE’. Alongside this, they dropped their 6th mini album, ‘THRILL-ING’ which features six brand new tracks title inclusive. This marks their official Korean return in almost a year since 2020’s September EP, ‘Chase’.
Lyrically, the track describes the guys wanting to take someone on a thrill ride to win over someone’s heart throughout the night. The almost 8-bit like synth motif that starts the track, and continues beeping in the instrumental throughout the majority of the song makes it easy to follow along. Intermittent raps also ride the wave of electric energy the song gives. The chanting post-chorus of the title also hypes the song up and gives variety to the otherwise light sung refrain. The track ends cleanly with the synth motif mentioned earlier.
Check out the MV down below!
THE BOYZ ‘THRILL-RIDE’ MV:
Watching the music video, it opens revealing the 11 member group behind leafy tropical trees, relaxing in their luxurious white robes and sunglasses by the pool. It seems the guys are running the place, being bartenders, bellboys and lifeguards, all whilst exuding their addictive level of goofiness. Cutting to the basketball court on the premise, outfits change towards fittingly basketball jerseys and other summery street inspired singlets and shirts. Choreography wise, the ‘The Stealer’ singers utilise their numbers to create a memorable and energetic performance with more free and flexible formations. Combined with shots of members showing off their youthful tempting appeal, the MV ends with them doing a dab before cutting back to the pool and relaxing on their sunchairs.
Despite releasing a special Universe single, ‘Drink It’, this mini album fills the drought of content in 2021. Fans have thirsted out and current sales project this mini album to outsell their last release. The Cre.ker Entertainment act garnered plenty of new fans after participating in Mnet‘s 2020 idol survival show ‘Road To Kingdom’ and 2021’s ‘Kingdom : Legendary War’. They have sold over 120,000 copies within the 1st day with the counting period continuing ( compared to 64,000 with ‘Chase’ on its 1st day). The popular ensemble are certainly growing their territory of fans at a nonstop speed.
THE BOYZ‘s 6th mini album, ‘THRILL-ING’, featuring the title track ‘THRILL RIDE’ is available now!
