According to MONSTA X’s label, Starship Entertainment, “MONSTA X’s ‘Alligator’ has received coverage from Metro, PopCrush, NME, EARMILK, and CNN Indonesia.”
“Alligator” is the title track of MONSTA X’s second studio album that was released on February 18, titled TAKE.2 WE ARE HERE.
Metro reported that MONSTA X’s comeback “has well and truly succeeded.”
PopCrush described MONSTA X as one of the groups that “challenge themselves with something completely new for their comebacks.” The outlet called “Alligator” an “alarm within itself, signalling the boys’ return. Taking inspiration from hip-hop, electronic and pop, MONSTA X take charge on an instantly catchy track.”
CNN Indonesia focused on the collaboration between MONSTA X and Steve Aoki on the track “Play It Cool,” and called the collaboration a “further step in MONSTA X’s expansion in the United States music industry.”
MONSTA X, who recently got their 4th win on KBS’s Music Bank for “Alligator,” is in the midst of promotions for their new single and album.
