JYP Entertainment is one of the fundamental forces in the K-pop industry, but one of its most ambitious efforts was its collaboration with Sony Music to create the Japanese girl group, NiziU. It began with the filming of season 1 of the reality competition Nizi Project between 2019 and 2020, which concluded airing in June 2020. NiziU predebuted almost immediately afterward before debuting in full in December 2020, and since then, the girls have developed a strong body of work. So for the sake of convenience, we here maintain an archive and list of all of the NiziU music videos from JYP, including every official MV and links to performance videos and other related content, all available to watch in one spot. This is the easiest way to have fun with Mako, Rio, Maya, Riku, Ayaka, Mayuka, Rima, Miihi, and Nina!
A List of All Official NiziU Music Videos – Watch Every MV in One Place
1. “Make you happy” MV – June 30, 2022
Just four days after Nizi Project ended, NiziU made their predebut with Make you happy, which included the titular song and three other songs from Nizi Project. The song is unmistakably a JYP production, with company founder J.Y. Park himself appearing in a funny, slapstick moment, and the lyrics reference Twice and Itzy.
There is a dance performance video for “Make you happy,” plus a performance video and a separate “NiziU School” version of the video. There is also a making-of-MV video for “Make you happy,” plus shorter making-of videos taken from the perspective of each NiziU member. Later on, more songs from Make you happy received video content: A “Baby I’m a star” performance video was released in August 2020, and “虹の向こうへ (Beyond the Rainbow)” received a 1st Anniversary Special performance video in November 2021.
2. “Step and a step” MV – December 2, 2020
NiziU officially debuted on December 2, 2020 with the maxi-single Step and a step, containing the eponymous “Step and a step.” The music video feels highly reminiscent of a standard Twice MV, with bright colors and lavish sets and CG. It feels like yet another statement that NiziU is a legitimate JYP group that will receive all of its backing.
Another song from Step and a step, “Sweet Bomb !,” would receive a “jjimjilbang” version dance performance video in February 2023.
3. “Take a picture” MV – March 29, 2021
NiziU break into the amusement park to have fun for the “Take a picture” music video. The song was initially introduced in promotions that NiziU did with Coca-Cola, and then it was released as part of a double single, Take a picture / Poppin’ Shakin’, which contained the two eponymous songs and one more track, “I AM.”
“Take a Picture” received a standard performance video, a “red” version of performance video, and a “pajamas” version performance video, and there is also an MV-making video. Additionally, “I AM” would receive a “2nd Anniversary Special” version video in December 2022, followed by “Another” version video.
4. “Poppin’ Shakin'” MV – April 7, 2021
“Poppin’ Shakin’” is an infectious song that makes you want to do exactly what the title says. It might get stuck in your head after one listen, and the video is full of more bright and fantastical sets.
5. “Chopstick” MV – November 11, 2021
“Chopstick” draws direct melodic influence from the classic Euphemia Allen waltz, “Chopsticks,” and the music video makes prominent use of a piano as expected. In fact, keyboard keys contort to even become hallways… somehow. It is a lead track on the first full NiziU album, U.
6. “Need U” MV – November 20, 2021
“Need U” is another refreshing track from the U album. The girls get sporty with some baseball and spend plenty of time outdoors.
Notably, “Super Summer” and “FESTA,” two more songs available on U, would receive video content. “Super Summer” received a performance video in January 2022, and “FESTA” would eventually receive a 2nd Anniversary Special version video, plus “Another” version.
*. “Take a picture” English ver. MV – December 2, 2021
The English version of the “Take a picture” music video is just like the regular one, except NiziU is of course singing in English!
*. “Poppin’ Shakin'” English ver. MV – December 2, 2021
“Poppin’ Shakin'” too got a largely identical video for its English release.
*. “Chopstick” Another MV ver. – December 31, 2021
True to its name, this is just another version of the “Chopstick” MV, released to end 2021.
7. “ASOBO” MV – April 12, 2022
The “ASOBO” music video is textbook NiziU, full of bright colors and exotic sets, and the song itself is equally cheery. Clearly, the group has an MO.
*. “ASOBO” English ver. – April 26, 2022
8. “Clap Clap” MV – July 13, 2022
“Clap Clap” is a bit bouncier than the usual NiziU music video, and it features more urban environments and cityscapes. It’s still unmistakbly NiziU though.
*. “Clap Clap” Another ver. MV – August 3, 2023
It’s an alternate take on the “Clap Clap” MV.
9. “Blue Moon” – December 2, 2022
“Blue Moon” is a slower, more reflective track than any other NiziU music video to that point, fitting the wintry season that was to come. It makes for a nice contrast and some literally cool visuals.
There is a making-MV video for “Blue Moon.”
*. “Blue Moon” Another ver. MV – January 6, 2023
It’s another alternate take.
10. “Paradise” MV – March 3, 2023
“Paradise” is another strikingly unique song for NiziU, being what amounts to a power ballad! It just might be one of their best. Between the choreography and the CG, there is a lot going on in the video as well.
*. “Paradise” Another ver. MV – March 20, 2023
JYP really loves “Another” versions for NiziU music videos all over the place, as seen here for “Paradise.”
11. “Coconut” MV – June 29, 2023
There is a “Coconut” performance video, an MV-making video, and a video of NiziU reacting to the music video. Additionally, in December 2023, a “Love & Like” 3rd anniversary special version video was released; “Love & Like” was another song on Coconut.
12. “Heartris” MV – October 30, 2023
“Heartris” marks the pulse-pounding long awaited Korean debut of NiziU, contained on the Korean mini-album Press Play. The music video makes prominent use of anime, seemingly as a nod to NiziU’s Japanese roots, and it also features Felix from Stray Kids. NiziU members had appeared in Stray Kids music videos prior to debuting, so the “Heartris” MV brings this full circle!
There is a NiziU reaction video for the “Heartris” MV, as well as a behind-the-scenes video and a “Heartris” performance video. Additionally, there is a “Heartris” “director’s film” — kind of a hybrid of music video and more behind-the-scenes clips!
13. “Lucky Star” Track Video – November 6, 2023
“Lucky Star” is another song from Press Play, and though this video is called a “track video,” it’s still pretty much an MV. It involves a cute slumber party where the girls scare each other with ghost stories.
