The members of EXO are really getting out to show out and now we can add Chen, Baek Hyun, and Xiu Min to the list.

Forming the mega-group’s first subunit, the three members have dropped a funky little bop about breaking away from the workaday world for a little fun and, maybe, some romance.  The bouncy, throwback production is really a big part of the track’s ability to sell itself and set the mood.  There is something about the beat that just makes you want to dance and that makes it perfect for the theme.

This must be the era of strong Kpop vocals because almost all of the comebacks and debuts we’ve seen in the last few months have had a focus on singing ability and this is no different.  The harmonies are varied and change from simple to deep from section to section and the leads give good emotion and energy (something you need for a track about having fun).  There is also a distinct lack of autotune over most of the track, which gives a sense of warmth that’s need to aid the theme.

The best part of this is the lyrics.  I have always had issues with the main group of EXO when it comes to lyrical cohesion; they tended not to have a lot initially.  But recent projects and this track have proven that they can do a good job of telling a cohesive story and make things interesting.  You have to love it when artists evolve!

Lyrics:
I was busy all day long
Even I can’t walk as usual
But this night is too cool to go home
I don’t have any plan yet
But feel so good

I don’t have a plan
Why don’t I call you
What you think about that?
What you think about that that?
That moon calls us so badly
What you think about that?
What you think about that that?

Hey Mama! At this very moment
Let’s make a night (Woo-oh)
Just you and I (Woo-oh)
Hey Mama! The night which has nothing special
Let’s make a night (Woo-oh)
Just you and I (Woo-oh)

That’s right (Woo)
Forget all and gather here
That’s right (Woo)
Surprise me right now
That’s right (Woo)
Step on the night and climb to the star
That’s right (Woo)
Look at me, I’m rusing into you

Yo! You don’t need to dress well
What if you came right after work. Who caress?
It’ll be took a long time if you get dolled up
But you’re already pretty
To be honest, no matter what you wear, you’re hot
It’s obvious even we make a plan
We don’t have enough time
Sun is downing now

I want to see you now
What you think about that?
What you think about that that?
I want to fly with you on this heat of passion
What you think about that?
What you think about that that?

Hey Mama! At this very moment
Let’s make a night (Woo-oh)
Just you and I (Woo-oh)
Hey Mama! The night which has nothing special
Let’s make a night (Woo-oh)
Just you and I (Woo-oh)

That’s right (Woo)
Forget all and gather here
That’s right (Woo)
Surprise me right now
That’s right (Woo)
Step on the night and climb to the star
That’s right (Woo)
Look at me, I’m rusing into you

Ah yeah! Are you ready?
(That’s right)
Everybody put your hands up,
Now 1, 2, 3
Change your daily life all
(Change, change everything)
Everyday is a party day
(It’s a party day, It’s a party day)
Change the world
Until everyone fell down, All night

Hey Mama! Stand up everyone right now
Let’s make a night (Woo-oh)
Just you and I (Woo-oh)
Hey Mama! The special night because we’re together
Let’s make a night (Woo-oh)
Just you and I (Woo-oh)

That’s right (Woo)
Forget all and gather here
That’s right (Woo)
Surprise me right now
(Let’s make a night baby)
That’s right (Woo)
Step on the night and climb to the star
(climb to the star)
That’s right (Woo)
Look at me, I’m rusing into you
