Single, ‘Rose,’ acoustic folk song telling a story of young love!
The single, ‘Rose,’ is an acoustic folk song featuring a cheerful guitar rhythm. The lyrics written by D.O. illustrate a story of young love, from the excitement when one falls deeply in love to the moment one confesses the love with courage.
‘I’m Fine’ features a jazzy R&B guitar sound. The lyrics, partially written by D.O., tell us to give regards to ourselves, not only to others. ‘I’m Gonna Love You’ is a medium-tempo pop track confessing unchanging love. The featuring rapper, Wonstein, is drawing attention.
‘It’s Love’ is a Latin-based acoustic pop song with interesting lyrics that shows how people continue to find love and anticipate love even they were once disappointed and thought love was dull. ‘My Love’ beautifully expresses every scenery one sees when walking down the night streets with a lover as love itself. ‘Dad’ sings about how you feel about your father when you are an adult, which generates empathy.
Bonus tracks include the English version of the single, 'Rose,' and the Spanish version of 'It's Love' prepared for global fans. All eight charming tracks are expected to win fervent responses.
