7-member boy band DA PUMP will release their first single in 3 years and 8 months, U.S.A., on June 6, 2018. The music video has already hit online where it has blown up on social media. It gained over 500,000 views on YouTube within 3 days.
The origin of the video comes from posts by a select number of Hello Project fans. The infectiously catchy song and performance from the seven members is grabbing hold of Hello Project fans’ hearts, and the YouTube comments are littered with references to Hello Project.
The song and video is receiving music praise online for its call back to the heydays of Hello Project, its style reminiscent of Tsunku, Issa’s singing ability and foot stomping dance movies, and its overall cheesy yet irresistibleness.
DA PUMP is currently holding release events in support of U.S.A. They are performing five shows, including one at Tama Plaza Terrace in Kanagawa on June 9, so be sure to catch them live to see them perform the dance to the new song!
