With the release of their debut album ‘TRI.BE Da Loca’, seven member girl group TRI.BE is officially the first K-Pop group to debut under Universal Music Group Korea. The quadrilingual septet - consisting of members Songsun, Jinha, Kelly, Hyunbin, Jia, Seoun and Mire - debuted with their two-song album featuring their catchy, genre-jumping lead single ‘DOOM DOOM TA’ and the hip-hop/synth-pop punch in B-side ‘Loca’. In the accompanying music video to ‘DOOM DOOM TA’ the girls are seen wielding guns and hanging with exotic animals. Republic Records will also be helping with U.S. promotions and guiding TRI.BE in navigating the American market, making them the fourth K-pop act to join the Universal Music Group label’s roster after TWICE, Tomorrow X Together, and (G)I-DLE.

One of the most famous K-pop producers in the world, S. Tiger (Shinsadong Tiger) championed TRI.BE and produced the two tracks. The star songwriter has produced hits for HyunA, T-ara, VIXX, Apink, MOMOLAND and EXID’s L.E, the lead rapper and an integral songwriter and producer for EXID, worked closely on TRI.BE’s debut, co-writing and composing ‘Loca’.

The music mastermind who helped EXID become a defining name in their generation made the music genre the utmost priority when producing TRI.BE, sharing, “I wanted to produce something that was a mixture of non-mainstream genres in K-pop such as Afrobeat, baile funk, dancehall. This type of production will serve as a major path indicator for TRI.BE’s future musical direction as well as the first step in engraving TRI.BE’s position and identity within K-pop.”

TRI.BE’s leader Songsun also expressed her desire to be a perfectionist like her cousin, Girl’s Generation member Yuri. Member Jinha expressed their goal of “leading the music shows and charts”. Member Seoun elaborated, “Our goal is to win the Rookie of the Year award and come first place in music shows. I also really want us to appear on entertainment shows.”

TRI.BE is currently starring in reality series “Let'sTry! be” on Studio Lululala’s YouTube channel, created by TV channel JTBC.

It would be an understatement to say that we’re excited about all the incredible things TRI.BE has in store for us. We can’t wait to see what comes next. Wishing TRI.BE all the love and success for their debut album!
