WATCH: UP10TION Is Magnetic In Dazzling “Spin Off” MV

UP10TION is back with their second full-length album, CONNECTION, and its title track “Spin Off” on June 14th at 6 p.m. KST. 

The album is a “spin-off” to the group’s ninth EP called Light Up, which was released in September last year, and presents UP10TION’s musical growth through writing, composing credits, and special unit songs. 

Title song “Spin Off” contains addictive club bass and synth sounds with a message of breaking limits and opening new beginnings. The track was written by K-pop hitmaker, and member of Korean vocal group V.O.S, Choi Hyunjoon who had also worked on the group’s previous single, “Light.”

Showing off a unique powerful dance performance, the music video features colorful lights and uses mirrors to create a mysterious atmosphere between individual cuts of the members’ visuals. 

Rappers Kuhn and Bitto took part in writing the lyrics for eight of the ten tracks, including the title song. And, for the first time since debut, member Xiao participated in the composition and writing of “Destroyed” and “Honey Cake.” Lead vocalist Kogyeol also lent a hand in writing and composing the track, “Sky Line.” 

CONNECTION is the TOP Media boy group’s second release without leader Jinhoo who went on hiatus during their Light Up promotions due to health issues and proceeded to enlist last November. Members Wooseok (formerly known as Wooshin) and Jinhyuk (formerly known as Wei) had also been gone since they appeared on “Produce X 101” and made their solo debuts. 

While TOP Media has remained silent on their status in the group, fans are still waiting eagerly for their return and hopeful for a comeback with all 10 members. 

Promotions for UP10TION’s previous comeback were cut short due to members Bitto, Kogyeol, and Xiao testing positive for COVID-19 thus prompting the group to go into isolation as per health department instructions. We are so glad to see them back and healthily performing again!
