The title song, ‘For Life’, is a pop ballad combining sweet piano melody with beautiful strings. The combination of hit-song composer Kenzie and Matthew Tishler, already proved their great teamwork on ‘Sing For You’ last year, raises expectations, and the lyrics about a sincere guy promoising his one and only love for life adds the romantic mood to the song.
‘Falling For You’ is an R&B pop song featuring soft but strong vocals perfectly combined with acoustic drums and the lyrics depicts the wish to become a snowflake falling from the sky to reach the lover. R&B ballad song, ‘What I Want For Christmas’, delivers the winter atmosphere through the moody piano and jazzy drums and the lyrics express thank you message to fans celebrating the 5th winter together.
The album also includes ‘Twenty Four’ which is a fusion hiphop song with addictive chorus and powerful rap and ‘Winter Heat’ which is an up-tempo R&B pop song that reminds the warm memories in last winter and hopes to feel that moment again. All five tracks will bring you to EXO’s special winter mood.
