True Damage debuted its hot new single ‘GIANTS’ with a fiery performance at the League of Legends Worlds 2019 opening ceremonies.

During the League of Legends Worlds 2019 opening ceremonies, True Damage — the hottest new virtual hip-hop group from LoL — debuted their new single “GIANTS.” It’s straight-up fire. Quite the banger, indeed.

The performance itself was a spectacle to be seen, as Riot used what the company calls “holo projection” technology to bring various League of Legends characters to life with hologram effects during the show.

As for the group and song itself, True Damage’s “GIANTS” consists of vocals from Rebecca “Becky G” Marie Gomez (Qiyana), Jeon “Soyeon” So-yeon (Akali), Umar “Thutmose” Ibrahim (Ekko), Jared “Duckwrth” Lee (Ekko) and Keke Palmer (Senna) — all of whom performed on stage during the big event.

In addition to the live performance, Riot also revealed the killer new music video for the song. If you thought the song was awesome, just wait until you see Riot’s amazing animation paired with it.

If this doesn’t get you hyped for the upcoming League of Legends animated series, Arcane, then nothing will.

Accompanying the debut of “GIANTS” are the True Damage champion skins, now available from the in-game store. True Damage Akali, Qiyana, Yasuo and Senna are all be priced at 1350 RP each, while Ekko’s Legendary True Damage skin costs 1820 RP. There’s also the True Damage Qiyana Prestige Edition, a special variant of the skin designed by Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director of women’s collections.

Also available are True Damage-inspired Little Legends (Series 5) for Teamfight Tactics, the popular auto-battler mode.

True Damage is the second virtual music group created from League of Legends characters. Last year, the fictional K-pop group K/DA made its debut. What will be the next group to take the world by storm?

Well, next year’s League of Legends World Championship will be hosted in China. As the 10th edition, Riot Games says they are making it “bigger and better” than this year’s performance, so who knows what sort of magic they’ll be able to work. I think we need a live performance from Pentakill.
