K-pop stars TWICE dropped their first song of 2024 on Friday (Feb. 2), the high-energy tribute to friendship “I Got You.” The group’s third English-language single is the first taste of their upcoming 13th mini album, With YOU-th (Feb. 23).
The video for the song finds Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu snuggling up together inside a ship’s cabin as it is tossed by stormy seas. “A little reckless around the edges/ Call it young, dumb love and it’s just enough,” they sing over a bubbly new wave-style beat reminiscent of a double-time homage to A-Ha’s 1985 classic “Take On Me.”
Comfortable in their cuddle puddle as the waves turn placid, the women get led to shore by a bandmate in a lighthouse, where they bust out some elegant choreo by the beach. “No we’ll never fall apart/ Even million miles apart/ We were lightning from the start,” they sing before diving into the joyous chorus: “Ooh/ No matter what you got me, I got you/ And I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
The soaring tribute to friendship is packed with shots of the band members dancing and holding hands in fields of gold and making pinkie swear promises to each other. It even includes a dreamy animated sequence in which they dive under the waves to frolic with marine life before winding down with the singers striking Titanic-like poses on the bow of the ship as they soak up the sun.
“I Got You” is the follow-up to the nine-member group’s previous English-language singles, “The Feels,” which landed their debut entry on the Billboard Hot 100 (No. 83) and “Moonlight Sunrise” (No. 84).
The JYP Entertainment group is in the midst of their Ready To Be world tour, which will play Mexico City’s Foro Sol Stadium on Friday and Saturday (Feb. 3), before moving on to a pair of dates at Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo (Feb. 6-7) and a gig at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on March 16.
