NewsJeans has teamed up with Pharrell Williams for “Supernatural,” the K-pop group’s Japanese debut single from their upcoming album of the same title.
Key points:
  • NewsJeans label ADOR confirmed on Monday that the American pop star is credited as a lyricist and composer of the K-pop group’s track “Supernatural.”
  • In a statement, ADOR explained that Williams “revisited his iconic ad-libs and bridge from the 2009 collaboration ‘Back of My Mind’ with Japanese singer Manami, which producer 250 has reinterpreted in a New Jack Swing style.”
The details:
  • The latest collaboration follows a partnership between the group and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, who provided the artwork for NewJeans’ “Right Now” music video. The track drew attention after it was briefly used as a song for a Lotte ZERO ad on May 9.
  • In addition to music collaborations, Williams, a multiple Grammy award-winning musician, has also ventured into the fashion world, collaborating with major brands like Louis Vuitton.
  • NewJeans is set to make their Japanese debut on June 21 with the “Supernatural” album, which contains four tracks, including the two mentioned titles and their instrumental versions.
  • The physical albums will reportedly come in versions of a drawstring bag, a cross bag and a WeVerse version without a bag. The versions will feature a combination design of Murakami’s iconic “Murakami Flower” as well as the group’s “Blinky Bong” lightstick.
What’s next:
  • Fans can look forward to the group’s comeback in Korea on May 24.
  • After the release of “Supernatural,” the group is scheduled to host a meet-and-greet at the Tokyo Dome titled “Bunnie Camp 2024.” NewJeans will reportedly perform their two tracks at the event, for which tickets are already sold out.
