The track, featuring all 4 performing artists, was released in collaboration with PepsiCo to promote their product PEPSI, being the "Summer Taste" that the artists are referring to.


Cross-label collaborations are not very common, so needless to say, fans of everyone involved were very excited to see their idols perform together.

The track is from the "TASTE OF KOREA" album, for a project between Starship Entertainment and Pepsi Korea titled "2021 Pepsi Taste of Korea Campaign." Previously, the aerated-drink brand had teamed up with Starship in 2019 as well for their joint "For The Love of It" campaign.

As the music video came out, fans quickly took to Twitter to share their reactions and trend "#SUMMER_TASTE" and "#TASTE_OF_KOREA" on the platform.

Monsta X's Shownu happened to go live before the music video was released, to commemorate the release. The Monsta X member mentioned the other artists from the collaboration in his stream, which made their fans happy as well.

As Starship and Pepsi's collaborative projects grow more and more frequent every year, fans hope to see more K-POP artists from different labels coming together.
