U.S.A. is the first new single from Japanese boy band DA PUMP in three-and-a-half years and the group’s first Eurobeat style track. Since the CD cover and music video were posted people have noted the cheesiness of this release. Though it’s cheesy, people absolutely cannot stop listening to it.
It’s only been a week since U.S.A. dropped on June 6, but the song has taken over the digital music charts in Japan. It has topped iTunes at number one for weekly song top music video, and even taken the top spot on Spotify and Apple Music.
The music video blew up on YouTube. In just 3 days after being posted on May 16 it had already reached 1 million views. As of June 12, the video has 7.1 million views.
The group posted a dance-along video so people can learn the moves themselves.
DA PUMP will perform at a-nation 2018 on August 18. If you’re in Japan and want to jump on this trend, then learn the moves yourself and go see them live!
