Dance with NCT U in their new song release ‘Work It’
NCT U (the NCT rotational unit) released their next music video for their track, ‘Work It’, on 27 November 2020. The song is included in their latest album, NCT RESONANCE Pt. 2. The line up combines the talents of Johnny, Yuta, Ten, Jungwoo, Hendery, Jaemin, and Jisung. It was composed by popular producers in Kpop, such as Kenzie, Mike Daley, Mitchell Owens, and Wilbart “Vedo” McCoy III. Kenzie has also contributed to the lyrics.
The song is light-hearted yet has tiny NCT insider references. For example, mentioning their fandom, “Czennies tell us right (Tell us right)“. The song is groovy and asks you to dance with them, along with some suggestive themes. However, the shift in tone tries to give a certain dynamic to the song but falls a bit short.
The dance groove in the song is nothing unique and some of the lyrics almost feel like a mockery (talking about the unnecessary “skrrt skrrt”).
However, the lazy style rapping and the sweet vocals are a delight to hear from this particular line up.
Now onto the performance. NCT’s sets and editing are always top-notch and ‘Work It’ was no exception. It had pleasing and colourful disco themes, matching their outfits and the groovy vibe of the song. Moreover, the camera work allowed us to see more angles on the energetic choreography. The choreography is especially fun to see as the chosen members are all well versed with dance, each having either the title of lead or main dancer. The glitter and scribble effects heighten the light-heartedness of the song too. Overall, it has a youthful vibe to it.
