Single, ‘2 Baddies,’ Addictive and Powerful Hip-hop Dance Song!
The single, ‘2 Baddies,’ is an intense hip-hop song featuring addictive signature synth and powerful vocals as well as interesting lyrics that send a message, “Only those who do their work while focusing on the important things based on their own perspective and will, not obstructed by the eyes of others around them, can improve and achieve success.”
The album also delivers ‘Faster,’ which is a hip-hop dance song that depicts the passion and confidence of the one that works faster than anyone else to achieve the goal, ‘Time Lapse,’ which is a mid-tempo R&B song with a minor mood that depicts the longing for a bygone love in reality and dreams, and ‘Crash Landing,’ which is a hip-hop R&B song that depicts a story of crash landing in an unexpected place and finding the life they dreamed of.
In addition, other songs in the album also mesmerize the ears. ‘Designer’ is a cheerful R&B song capturing the desire to become a designer that adorns the lover in a special way. ‘Gold Dust’ is an R&B song that expresses the feelings toward a person who came to your ordinary daily life like a shining light and gave you butterflies by comparing it to ‘gold dust,’ which depicts ‘ripples that glitter in the sunlight or the moonlight.’ 'Black Clouds' is a medium R&B song that describes the moment you accidentally run into your ex-lover as if it is a scene with two lead characters in a black-and-white movie.
'Playback' is an up-tempo pop dance song that wittily describes the heart that cannot forget the past lover and is always in the same place by comparing it to a cogwheel. ‘Tasty’ is a hip-hop song that tells the story of how to get rid of villains in nightmares swiftly, showing its charming dark image.
Also included in the 12 songs are ‘Vitamin,’ which is a cheerful hip-hop song with the message that they will be like a vitamin in your life and will always be by your side to cheer you up in times of difficulty, 'LOL (Laugh-Out-Loud),' which is a neo-soul pop song that conveys comfort and support with a message to laugh out loud when you have a hard time to forget about difficult times, and '1, 2, 7 (Time Stops),' which is an up-tempo pop song that expresses the thrill felt in the moment you spend with your loved one, using the group’s title, 127.VIEW MORE
