K-pop supergroup SuperM brought the heat on Friday (Aug. 14) with the dynamic new single “100,” the first taste of their upcoming full-length debut album, Super One.
In a new interview with Billboard, the group discussed the meaning behind the amped-up new track. “The song itself is very strong and dynamic, but it also holds a positive message and we want to tell our fans that with our 100% energy, we wish to give our 100% to you guys,” Mark explained. “We hope you receive our energy, and know we can overcome all of our negativity through that energy together.”
The album itself has an equally important meaning, according to Ten. “We are as one united and with our strength we can overcome all the obstacles and difficulties we are having right now,” he explained. “Inside this album, there are so many genres in it.”
While it’s still unclear whether any collaborations will appear on Super One, Kai admitted that he would love to team up with The Weeknd or Post Malone. “I’ve thought about how cool it’d be to work with them.”
SuperM’s fanbase has been hyping up a possibility of the supergroup catching a best new artist nomination for the 2021 Grammys, a concept they are blown away by. “I think the fact that we’re being mentioned in itself is such an honor,” Taemin admitted. “After hearing about that, part of me wants us to nab the nomination, and also just continue to work hard.”
Super One is out Sept. 25. Watch the full interview above.
