Monsta X dropped their long-awaited full-length English-language debut on Friday morning (Feb. 14) and it's probably no coincidence that it emerged on Valentine's Day. The 12-track All About Luv really is just that, an homage to love in all its forms, with the six-piece K-pop stars rolling out smooth pop and R&B anthems that will set hearts racing and instantly slide into playlists for the most romantic day the year.
From the electro pop glide "Got My Number" to the yearning post-break up anthem "Happy Without Me" ("now I hate to see you happy without me") and the ear candy Bieber-esque bop earlier single "Love U," the album is packed with all the colors love, infatuation and heartbreak. There's some finger-snapped doo-wop a cappella runs in the previously released low-key EDM throbber "Someone's Someone," a rush romantic gestures in the true love bop "She's the One" and some serious sensual swagger on "Beside U," featuring Pitbull.
The album also features a will.i.am remix the previously released single "Who Do U Love?" with French Montana and a remix the Pitbull track to round out the dozen songs. The group will be hitting the road this summer for a run 17 tour dates across North America, whicih kicks f June 2 at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minn. with stops at arenas in major cities including Washington D.C., Boston, Toronto and Vancouver before wrapping up July 11 at The Forum in Los Angeles.
