On Thursday (April 5), the boy band dropped the latest single off their self-titled U.S. debut, and it’s full of fist-pumping beats and sing-along chants. The club-banger, with its swirling production and booming beat, is a bit more aggressive than “Glad You Came” though. It has more in-your-face moments in terms of the way the song grinds along, corresponding to the fivesome’s signature bad-boy swagger.
“We’ve only just begun/ Hypnotized by drums/ Until forever comes/ You’ll find us chasing the sun,” the guys proclaim on the track, written by British rapper and singer Example. “They said this day wouldn’t come/ We refuse to run/ We’ve only just begun/ You’ll find us chasing the sun.”
Where “Glad” focuses on the guys romancing ladies with double entendres and innuendos, “Chasing” seems to be about the guys declaring that no matter what, in love and life, nothing can stop them from going all the way. And yes, the expected sexy moments are still there, as evidenced by lines like, “When the daylight’s fading/ We’re gonna play in the dark/ Until it’s golden again.”
The song’s release coincides with their appearance on Thursday night’s “American Idol.” Their U.S. album hits shelves on April 24, and the guys will also appear on an episode of MTV’s “Punk’d” later this season.
“To be in the U.S. is amazing,” bandmember Siva Kaneswaran told MTV News recently. “But just as long as we go out there and be ourselves and the U.S. takes us as we are, we’re just coming over here to have a laugh.”
