JYP Entertainment girl group Nmixx dropped a cover Sunday of “Kiss,” a 2009 song from the former K-pop girl group Rainbow.

The Warner Music Korea music video sees the septet at a summer party as they sing their rendition of Rainbow’s song off their 2009 debut album “Gossip Girl.”

Nmixx’s cover is part of a YouTube series called “Re:born Project” which gathers different Korean artists’ renditions of popular songs, such as Fromis_9’s take on “Sea of Moonlight” by girl group Fiestar and soloist IU.  

Nmixx are slated to perform at KCON LA 2022 later this month alongside an all star assembly of other acts, such as Ateez, Enhypen, Itzy, Lightsum, Loona, P1Harmony, StayC, Stray Kids, TO1 and “Queendom” Season 2 winner WJSN. Nmixx previously performed as headliners at KCON Premiere 2022 in Chicago back in May. 

Nmixx is composed of members Haewon, Lily, Sullyoon, Jinni, BAE, Jiwoo and Kyujin. They debuted in February with the single album “Ad Mare,” which includes the title track “O.O” and the side track “Tank.” The album set a record at the time for the highest debut album sales for a K-pop girl group by selling 227,399 in one week, an achievement just recently surpassed by Hybe’s new group, NewJeans.   

Last week, Sullyoon dropped a cover of Blackpink’s 2016 soft song, “Stay.”
