It looks like NCT haven't stopped surprising fans with more special content from their latest album 'Resonance'. 

Taking to their social media on October 12, the 23-member K-pop boy band announced the LP's lead track, titled 'Make A Wish (Birthday Song)' is getting its own official music video.

"NCT U ‘Make A Wish (Birthday Song)’ MV #MakeAWish #NCT #RESONANCE #NCT2020 #RESONANCE_Pt1 #NCT2020_RESONANCE" the group wrote on Twitter along with a photo taken from the video. Check out their post below:

NCT's fans have flooded the comments section with their excitement over the new video. "LETSS F*KING GOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!" a fan exclaimed in all caps, sharing a humorous gif of a crowd losing their minds to the music of a live concert.



 

One fan called 'Make a Wish' the "SONG OF THE YEAR!!!!! WBK!!!!!!" while another wrote, "A BOP IM SURE ABT THAT."



 

 



 

"STOP MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE WHO PRONOUNCE WORDS DIFFERENTLY!! some of you pronounce it as 'MAKE A WISH' but i pronounce it as 'the SONG OF THE YEAR' and that’s okay," said another fan, sharing the same "song of the year" sentiment.



 

Several fans repeated the same comment: "NCT2020 isn’t just an era, its a cultural reset, its a lifestyle, a reason to breathe, an escape from this cruel world filled with thieves, its an art, the first gift you open on christmas and a hug from a loved one."



 

'Resonance' is the second studio album by NCT, and comes in two parts, the first of which arrived on October 12 and the one to feature 'Make A Wish (Birthday Song)'. The visual for the song features the group stomping and pulling out high-energy dance moves over a cheeky whistle and rap-pop beat. Within less than a day, the music video is already hitting near 20 million views on YouTube, and is well on its way to being a formidable K-pop hit in 2020. 'Make a Wish' and its accompanying video are hard-hitting, gritty and infectiously entertaining. NCT haven't forgotten their English audiences and have also shared an English lyric video on YouTube. You can watch both the versions below. 

'NCT Resonance Part 1' also includes the catchy tracks: 'Faded in My Last Song', 'Déjà Vu' and 'From Home'. 

'Faded in My Last Song' opens in a honey-dripped piano ballad and is layered by trap-pop rhythm and sounds with tender crooning. 'Déjà Vu' gets a more dramatic boy band touch with heavily accentuated synth and a booming beat. 'From Home' takes energies down several notches with a soulful R&B ballad. With tracks such as these and the firey 'Make a Wish' music video, it looks like NCT's new album has shaped up to be a powerful comeback indeed.
