DJ HYO—the moniker of Girls’ Generation member Hyoyeon—has released a new single titled “Badster.”

The club-worthy banger arrived with an animated clip featuring Hyoyeon in a futuristic video game world. It’s intercut with rapid scenes of a first-person-shooter game that references the VR rhythm game Beat Saber, matching the intensity of the song’s heavy drops.

“Badster” was written and composed by Hyoyeon herself, and arrived in both English and Korean. It’s her latest release under the DJ HYO moniker since last November’s “Punk Right Now” with American DJ 3LAU. Watch her new videos below:
