Share this

TRI․BE is a 7-member girl group with the concepts of “GIRL SWAG”, “SELF-CONFIDENCE”, and “YOUNG & FRESH”. Soon after their debut, they were announced to be supported by Republic Records, a major label in the U.S. They have been making an exceptionally rapid progress and are already making a comeback with their 2nd single album “CONMIGO”.

The single focuses on “YOUNG & FRESH” among the concepts of TRI․BE. CONMIGO” means “With Me” in Spanish. RUB-A-DUM”, which is also the main track, has lyrics in which TRI․BE calls out “Let’s all play with TRI․BE” in the motif of the story of “The Piper of Hamelin”. In addition, the side song “LORO” means “parrot” in Spanish and calls for people to have confidence in their “real selves” by imitating TRI․BE’s words and actions.

TRI․BE’s unique musicality is still alive and well, combining dance hall and reggaeton genres to create very catchy melodies and a unique, fresh sound. The sound aspect of the album is produced by S.TIGER, who continues to be a popular producer in the K-pop world, known as Shinsadong Tiger.

The music video for the main track, “RUB-A-DUM,” was also released at the same time, and it tells the story of the members as alter egos, chasing after their other “selves” and rediscovering and reexamining their “true selves.

To coincide with the release, a release showcase will be streamed on NAVER’s live video distribution app “V LIVE” at 8:00 p.m. Japan time today (the 18th). Be sure to check it out as it will be the first opportunity to see the girls perform.

Also, UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE will start to sell the official Korean version of the CD, which will come with a Korean-style Purikura-like sheet and a lottery ticket for the online talk session as a special offer only for UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE (a sales site without lottery ticket is also available). For the online talk session, up to 30 people will be invited by lottery from among those who purchased the CD at UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE to an online talk session with all TRI․BE members. This is a rare opportunity for fans to talk with the members online.
