Members of the Korean boy band Exo will be in Dubai to celebrate the launch of their song, Power, at the Dubai Fountain on January 16. The event will mark the first time the Dubai Fountain adds a K-pop song to its playlist.
“We are very much delighted that our song Power has been chosen as the first Korean song ever to be played at The Dubai Fountain show,” the band said in a statement. “Not only is Power an uplifting song with a catchy beat, but also the lyrics talk about how one can become stronger through music that unites everyone into one. And all these go well with The Dubai Fountain itself where all Dubai visitors from all over the world gather in one spot to enjoy the show. We are looking forward to seeing the splendid fountain show with its first ever rendition of Power.”
Formed in 2012 at a 12-member band, Exo has enjoyed massive success as a boy band in Korea as well as across Asia, selling millions of records. The song Power is their newest hit, released in September, and has topped the charts in various K-Pop markets around the world.
“The influence and admiration of K-Pop is growing around the world, especially in Middle Eastern markets and we are thrilled that visitors to The Dubai Fountain will be entertained with Exo’s latest song,” said Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Tourism.
The Dubai Fountain’s current music repertoire includes mega-hit songs from global artists such as Thriller by Michael Jackson, I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston, The Prayer by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, Skyfall by Adele, and La Vie En Rose by Edith Piaf.
