Cheerful and Exciting Title Track Turning Ordinary Day into Special One, ‘Hey Mama!’
Title song, ‘Hey Mama!’ is an exciting song of the combination of 1970’s funk, disco, and pop genres with funky rhythm and modern sound reflecting the latest trend. ‘Mama’ is a slang that refers to an ‘attractive woman’ in British-American culture and the lyrics attract the ears with the message to have fun and turn ordinary today, into a special day.
‘The One‘ is a two-step garage song with outstanding synthesizer, bass, and brass sounds and the delightful narration of members doubles the fun of listening. It has been the center of attention after its short preview during the solo concert in July. ‘Rhythm After Summer’ is an electronic dance song with funky groove, and the romantic lyrics delicately express the love towards the lover who is always staying beside him regardless of the change of seasons.
‘Juliet’ is a medium tempo R&B ballad track that combines both classical and trendy musical elements. The lyrics describe the lover as ‘Juliet’, the female lead of Shakespeare’s famous play, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, is quite interesting. ‘Cherish’ is a retro pop with the lyrics that interestingly express the fluttering feeling of a man in love and some cherishable moments he wishes to keep.
EXO-CBX will be fully promoting with ‘Hey Mama!’, the title song of its first mini album.
