TOMORROW X TOGETHER and Anitta are combining K-pop and Latin pop in their new collaborative single “Back for More,” the artists announced on Tuesday (Sept. 5). What’s more, they will debut the track with a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 12, days ahead of its Sept. 15 release.
“Back for More” is slated to be TXT’s pre-release track, and will arrive ahead of the group’s third studio album, The Name Chapter: FREEFALL. The album — which follows previous release in the Name series, The Name Chapter: TEMPTATION — will drop on Oct. 13.
The track will have several versions released throughout the month. A performance version of the song arrives the same day as its official drop, while “Back for More (TXT Ver.),” a house remix and Afrobeats remix will be released on Sept. 18.
The press release describes “Back for More” as “a disco track with a groovy baseline and playful whistling sounds, adorned with the colorful hues of trendy Latin pop.” Thematically, the lyrics explore how “enchanting miracles can be woven into the ordinary moments of our lives.”
TXT is nominated for VMAs in four different categories: song of summer, group of the year, push performance of the year and best K-pop (both for “Sugar Rush Ride”). Anitta scored one nomination for best Latin (“Funk Rave”).
The 2023 VMAs will take place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, and will air on MTV at 8 p.m. ET on Sept. 12.
