Watch the Music Video for [HyunA&DAWN] ‘PING PONG’ :
Ping Pong is described by the company as an intense Moombahton Dance track. The chorus and the dance break is definitely intense but most of the song has a more playful tone than an intense one. The instrumentals are upbeat and cheerful, with a bit of added carnival flair. The Spanish influence is obvious in the song, especially with lyrics such as ‘La Vida Loca, ‘Tiki taka’ etc. The song represents a playful relationship with a bit of push and pulls going on.
The music video is as bright as the song, with colourful sets and equally vibrant outfits. But all of these are eclipsed by the chemistry between the couple. Overall it’s a decent video to watch, with all the choreography going on as well.
