ALI Drops Official Music Video for BEASTARS Sensational Anime Opening “Wild Side”

27.November.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

Multinational band ALI from Shibuya released their first single Wild Side and first album ALI on November 27, simultaneously revealing the official music video for Wild Side on YouTube. 

ALI – Wild Side (Music Video)

Wild Side was chosen to be the opening theme song for the brand new anime BEASTARS which celebrated its debut on Fuji TV in October this year. The official creditless version of the anime opening on YouTube was viewed over 3 million times, becoming a sensation among anime fans in Japan and all over the world.

The anime opening version of the song was dropped on streaming services the moment the anime made its debut and it was played over 1 million times in just one month, becoming an international smash hit, particularly in America and Mexico.

 

The official music video was directed by HAVIT ART STUDIO, which has famously directed music videos for a large number of hip hop artists including KOHH and Tohji. The music video is set in a world where music is banned and ALI smashes the rules to restore music to the world. 

ALI will also be presenting their single and album to the entire country when they go on tour in Fukuoka, Osaka and Tokyo for their first live tour as a band. This is an exciting time for fans in Japan and all over the world.
