The K-Pop sensation (G)I-DLE has revealed a brand-new song titled “DUMDi DUMDi.”Bottom Line: “DUMDi DUMDi” pushes the K-Pop boundaries with a song that combines tropical house, moombahton, and pop for this international banger. “DUMDi DUMDi”has a summer-ready melody and lyrics and a hip vocal riff. Composed by Leader SOYEON, “DUMDi DUMDi” has moments of island grooves and a catchy refrain, and the song form gives all six members space to showcase their signature styles. Accompanying the song is a new video that was passionately contributed to by the six members. In the video, MIYEON is an actress on vacation by herself, MINNIE is a wanderer exploring freedom, SOOJIN never leaves the house, SOYEON is driving her convertible, YOUQI is a cowgirl in the desert, and SHUHUA is a lively part-timer. The video is as striking as the music, both you will enjoy through multiple explorations. The song has a catchy vocal riff, a fun chorus, and each vocalist brings their own style to the verse. If K-Pop is your thing, you should check out this fun summer banger. That’s the short of it!
