NCT 127 are back with their Repackaged Album Ay-Yo.
By Adriana Chavez
They’re back with a bang! True to their fast paced style, NCT 127 is kicking off the new year with their Repackaged Album Ay-Yo. With three new songs, TAEIL, JOHNNY, TAEYONG, YUTA, DOYOUNG, JAEHYUN, JUNGWOO, MARK, and HAECHAN, breathe new life to their last album release 2 Baddies. Ay-Yo is a fresh new spin allowing NCT 127 to explore new ideas and offer new tracks to put on repeat.
The title track “Ay-Yo” is NCT 127 at its best. The hip hop dance track is an anthem inspiring listeners to follow their own path and move forward. Already racking up more than 10 million views, the music video reflects the powerful feeling the song is portraying. With their iconic choreography always at the forefront, the music video is a fun twist showing different looks. From darker, rocker visuals to classic suits and even a bit of their laid back traditional style, the music video allows the members to have a good time and let the song shine.
Ay-Yo also features two b-side tracks “DJ” and “Skyscraper.” To further delight fans both TAEYONG and MARK served as co-writers for the tracks giving them a personal touch. “DJ” keeps the same carefree, fun sound heard throughout their music. It has an old-school hip hop rhythm with lyrics that give fans permission to just enjoy the moment. “Skyscraper” is a hard hitting dance song that fuels the need to reach the top of your goals.
2 Baddies released in September 2022 as the group’s fourth full length album. The album was an instant hit making its way up the charts and showing how NCT 127 can experiment with new sounds and styles. NCT 127 also wrapped up their Neo City: The Link world tour where they got to perform and meet fans across the globe. With Ay-Yo as their first release of the year, it's safe to say NCT 127 still has a lot left to give and they’re pushing full steam ahead.
Ay-Yo is a fun new approach for NCT 127. The visuals give a fun carefree vibe but also offers up a sleek powerful look showing the group’s versatility. Each unique look is seen throughout the physical copies available on the SM Global Shop! There are three different versions: A version, B version, and the Digipack version each with their own style.
The A version makes you wish it was summer with its breezy look. This version comes with all the goodies like a folder poster and a photo card but also features two stickers, allowing you to stick on NCT 127 wherever you want. The B version features the members in a tough, cool guys look and also features a photo card and postcard. If you’re feeling a little risky, the Digipack version comes in nine different versions each for one member at random.
