Monsta X has released their 10th mini album, No Limit. The album kicks off a new era amid the disordered, unprecedented world struck by the pandemic. The release comes with the music video of their song “Rush Hour.” Stream the album on Spotify and Apple Music.
Produced by rapper Joohoney, “Rush Hour” conveys a central message that sets a specific tone for the album. As the phrase suggests, “Rush Hour” refers to a chaotic situation or time, emphasizing Monsta X’s identity by comparing the current music industry to congested traffic during rush hour. The music video sees the band members competing nonstop in the cold grayish city, have pioneered a barren land, and walked their own path. Their ambitious steps towards their final goals are portrayed as off-road driving, and the unchanging competitive society is depicted as hanging on by a thread from a high place.
Monsta X still has more activities before the year ends. The group will release their second English-language album The Dreaming on December 10, a global movie launching in more than 70 countries (find dates/tickets here), and 4 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball performances in December.
The members of Monsta X have consistently contributed to their past albums, and again, they have participated as lyricists and composers on various songs throughout No Limit. “Rush Hour” marks Joohoney’s second focus track that he’s produced, with I.M and Hyungwon self-producing “Just Love” and “Mercy.” Throughout this album, Monsta X have made sure to dedicate multiple tracks to their fans, MONBEBE. Throughout the lyrics, the members have expressed their thanks and longing to meet again in person soon, despite having been physically apart from their fans due to the pandemic.
