Let’s Shut Up & Dance which was released in February last year had the ARMY and Jason Derulo's fans grooving to the anthem all summer long back then. The music video which marked a collaboration between EXO’s Lay, NCT 127, served as the perfect party anthem with its edgy tones, sultry tunes and topped with some amazing dance sequences. Shot between the robust stature of the streets of Seoul and exotic energy of Jamaica, this collaboration between the versatile artists came with a strong message of celebrating dance and music from wherever it may have transpired.

 

If this wasn't enough, the music video also serves as a homage to the king of pop Michael Jackson. Former president of Michael Jackson’s label MJJ Music--Jerry Greenberg, confirmed during the time of the song's release that the track Let’s Shut Up & Dance not only celebrated the diversity and inclusion but also was a tribute to Michael Jackson’s abundant contributions to the dance world.

 

If you missed it, back in February 2019, Derulo spoke to Billboard about the collaboration and revealed “I was so excited about this collaboration,” Derulo said of Zhang, a member of the Chinese and South Korean boy band EXO, and NCT 127, a 10-member, Seoul-based boy group. “We come from totally different worlds, but I really, really love their talent.” Derulo has also collaborated with everyone from pop hitmakers like Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and David Guetta to Colombian superstar Maluma and country music king Luke Bryan.
