GOT the beat to perform on Mnet’s 'M Countdown' on Jan. 27.
SM Entertainment’s project girl group GOT the beat will be staging a performance on Mnet’s “M Countdown” on Jan. 27.
It will mark the group’s first performance on a music show since its debut on Jan. 1.
The group will be performing its debut single “Step Back,” which will showcase powerful choreography, said SM Entertainment. The members have only showcased the performance once on the day of their debut through SM Entertainment’s new year concert “SMTOWN Live 2022: SMCU Express @ Kwangya.”
GOT the beat has garnered much attention even before its debut as it consists of seven of SM Entertainment’s female idol superstars — BoA, Taeyeon and Hyoyeon of Girls’ Generation, Seulgi and Wendy of Red Velvet and Karina and Winter of aespa.
However, after listening to the song, fans have criticized that it sounds too “old school” and that the lyrics are not empowering.
The song is from the perspective of a woman (members of GOT the beat) accusing another woman of flirting with her boyfriend and warning her to “step back.”
