“The Pains of Growing,” doubles down on both the sincerity — she wrote all the lyrics — and the awkwardness… she is a singer with an agile voice but a young woman still figuring herself out.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES
“On her sensitive sophomore record “The Pains of Growing,” Cara acknowledges the pressures of that responsibility by crafting a record mostly about learning to take her own advice” – THE BOSTON GLOBE

International K-Pop Sensations, Monsta X, continue their worldwide onslaught with the announcement of their first all English language release of their title track, “Shoot Out,” exclusively revealed by Billboard. “Shoot Out” English version is set to drop THIS Friday November 9th at 6:00pm KST / 4:00am EST on all streaming platforms; with JoJo Wright of 102.7 KIIS FM exclusively premiering the single on Friday November 9th at 9:00AM Pacific. Monsta X have already made a huge impact in U.S. media with OC Weekly calling them “power players in the K-pop game,” Metro UK comparing their fandom to the likes of One Direction stating “…the Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday night looked like the intense sort of fan dedication not seen since One Direction were a thing,” and PAPER Magazine stating “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that Monsta X’s darkly textured but nonetheless high-energy music is the reason why they stand apart from other acts in the vibrant (and constantly expanding) K-pop scene.”
Monsta X is currently preparing to cause pandemonium stateside once again by making history as the first K-Pop group to perform at the iHeart Radio Jingle Ball, where they will be performing the English version of “Shoot Out” for the first time. The first of five dates will be kicking off in Los Angeles on Friday November 30th alongside household names such as Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, G-Eazy, Khalid, Normani, Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara, Calvin Harris, Bazzi and Bebe Rexha.
The Korean version of “Shoot Out” has already made a huge impact on both Korean and U.S. shores by picking up 4 consecutive #1 wins on the prestigious Korean TV Shows; M Countdown, Show Champion, SBS MTV’s “The Show,” and Music Bank.
Billboard noted “This week on the charts, “Shoot Out” climbs from No. 10 to No. 8 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart, marking the band’s ninth top 10 on the chart.” https://www.billboard.
The band are in the midst of making a huge impact on our shores with their 2nd Album Take.1, ‘Are You There?’ debuting on the Billboard World Albums chart at No. 7; marked the week of November 3rd. Not to mention their 47 week streak on the Billboard Social 50 Chart. Monsta X is causing a unstoppable wave of interest here with their 2nd Album and title track “Shoot Out”, with PAPER Magazine stating ““Shoot Out” is niche enough to catch the ear of the most cynical music critic, and accessible enough, via the band’s perfectly synchronized harmonies, to appeal to the masses” and MTV describing it as“..a thundering beat, slick pop-rock chorus, and sensual visual.” Earmilk also added “Brimming with the grit and sensual rhythms that are core to the band’s musical style, “Shoot Out” is about the inescapability of fate and the importance of filling life with love.”

Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Alessia Cara has once again donned the symbolic, oversized suit she wore in the “Growing Pains” video, the “Trust My Lonely” video, as well as recent appearances on Fallon, Colbert, and the Today Show for her performances at Austin City Limits and the MTV EMA Awards – where she took home the award for Best World Stage. Alessia told the Today crew: “It’s an artistic way of symbolizing the idea of growing up. Sometimes you kind of feel like you’re drowning and you feel like you’re not ready for the roles life throws at you so this was my way of symbolizing it in an artistic way.” Alessia took to her Twitter account to defend her choices for wearing the oversized suit after some online criticism and received support from Kehlani and Ariana Grande.
