Slightly over a year after the release of their last album, mega-group EXO is back with four new videos and an infectious sound.

If you’ve seen any of our posts on EXO, you’ll note that our biggest complaints are about the lyrical content of their music.  This isn’t a complain this time around because they managed to nail it on Lucky One.  With a happy, disco beat, the song about finding their way to love is perfectly executed with the metaphor of a treasure hunt carries effortlessly all the way through…at least in the Korean version (we know that the group has had some problems with Chinese lyrics making little to no sense and we don’t have a translation of the Chinese version of the track to see if that’s true here).  The harmonies are on point as well as the group melds in a way that haven’t before and showing that individualism is best saved for the solos instead of the backing vocals (adlibs excluded).  The production is just of north of generic, but it works for this track and as companion to the more energetic Monster.

The first video is the Korean version; the second is the Chinese.

Finding pop!gasa made us the lucky ones…

 

Lyrics:
Oh the sun is rising
I’m holding a map that goes to you
Plotting the coordinates and making the route
No matter because the silver compass needle
Will point to you

The sky that resembles you is beautiful
Again today, you are so dazzling

Swerving on an unfamiliar road as if I know it
I’m passing our parallel lines, I don’t mind
Pushed by big waves at the end of this voyage

After the wind violently blows
My world stops and you’re my only one
The moment I discover you, I’ll shine even brighter
I’ll be the lucky one

You and I (living it up)
In this place (just living it up)
Keep on coming (Wow wow wow wow)
In the same time, the moment we become one
We’ll be the lucky ones

Girl (Oh, girl)
Your secretly hidden confession (Just tell me right now)
I’ll take one more step to your side baby
Again today, I’ll never go back

A rule that only I know, I’ll change it
I’m passing our parallel lines, I don’t mind
Pushed by big waves at the end of this voyage

After the wind violently blows
My world stops and you’re my only one
The moment I discover you, I’ll shine even brighter
I’ll be the lucky one

You and I (living it up)
In this place (just living it up)
Keep on coming (Wow wow wow wow)
In the same time, the moment we become one
We’ll be the lucky ones

Out of the countless people, you’re my lover
A four-leaf clover that I luckily found
You’re my fortune and you’ll come to me
It’s so great, no matter what anyone says
The more I get to know you, yeah let’s go
There isn’t a place where we can’t coexist
You’re my only one, I’m your lucky one cause I I I

After the wind violently blows
My world stops and you’re my only one
The moment I discover you, I’ll shine even brighter
I’ll be the lucky one

You and I (living it up)
In this place (just living it up)
Keep on coming (Wow wow wow wow)
In the same time, the moment we become one
We’ll be the lucky ones

I am the lucky one
I am the lucky one
