EXO Shimmy, Shimmy ‘Ko Ko Bop’ in Tropical New Video: Watch

EXO have come to claim summer as their kingdom on “Ko Ko Bop,” the South Korean stars’ latest tropical-hued banger which premiered July 18.

“Ko Ko Bop,” a humid, bass-heavy dancehall bop with a deliciously grimy trap breakdown, was co-written by members Chen, Chanyeol and Baekhyun about wanting to “dance freely together on the night before the inevitable war.”

Featuring a fierce dance break as well as an assortment of surreal visuals—a car driving itself, giant cheeseburgers floating in the sky, miniature storm clouds providing ice-cold refreshments—the clip is charged with that hazy late summer electricity that seems to linger in the air as the season winds down.
