Japanese-Chinese boys' Collective WARPs UP Release New Single 'POWER_xin' Today

Japanese-Chinese boys' collective WARPs UP release new single ‘POWER_xin’ today – a cool trap-based dance track that sends a message of belief to their fans!

Japanese-Chinese boys' collective WARPs UP released new single ‘POWER_xin’ today, 14 January. This is the first original new music by the group's two Chinese members LANGYI and MINGJUN since Japanese members SANTA and RIKIMARU debuted with the popular limited-time group INTO1 in China.

During the summer of 2021, LANGYI and MINGJUN released a trio of covers of popular J-pop songs sung in Chinese – ‘Pleasure’ by WARPs UP, ‘Planetarium’ by Ai Otsuka and ‘PLANET’ by Lambsey – brewing anticipation for this long-awaited original new music.

‘POWER_xin’ is a cool trap-based dance track sung in English, Chinese and Japanese – a trilingual approach that is one of WARPs UP's trademarks. The Chinese word “shin” in the title can be read as “believe” in Japanese or as “letter” in Chinese; as such, the lyrics tell of the group members' “belief” in each other, and are a “letter” or message from the members to the fans. The lyrics sing of LANGYI and MINGJUN's commitment to the future of WARPs UP, as well as the bond between the members, and between them and their fans, as they pursue their ongoing career.

The music video features backing dancers WARPs ROOTS, who are a training group connected with WARPs UP, and they deliver energetic team choreography that reflects the lyric “Power” that is repeated in the chorus. The powerful and exciting choreography was created by YUMERI. This is YUMERI's second time to create a dance routine for the group, after their debut single ‘Hali Gali’. The creative choreography showcases her abundant experience and skills as a professional dancer, and matches the “power” that is central to the song.
