A Charming Warning from EXO! Title Song, ‘Tempo’
The title song, ‘Tempo’, is a hip-hop dance song featuring energetic bass line, rhythmical drum, and EXO’s refreshing a cappella. The lyrics are charming in that they compare the girl he loves to ‘melody’ and express how a guy wishes to keep pace with her tempo. The Korean and Chinese versions of the song are included in the album.
‘Sign’ is an electro pop song with interesting lyrics that compared the doubts growing along with her lies and the irreversible heart to the escalating fire. ‘Ooh La La La’ is a Latin pop song with the lyrics telling a dramatic story where an imaginary love turns into reality at the moment the eyes met as if it was tele-transported from imagination to real world.
‘Gravity’ is an electro pop song for which CHANYEOL wrote the lyrics by comparing the wish to hold her back when she is leaving to gravity. ‘With You’ is a pop R&B song with the sweet lyrics that the lover makes him shine brighter and CHANYEOL also partially wrote and composed the song.
‘24/7’ is a medium tempo song that expresses the complex feeling that one gets after throwing harsh words at the lover and leaving her in the night. ‘Bad Dream’ delicately expressed the feeling one has in the night when the thoughts of the bygone love press in.
‘Damage’ is a sardonic resolution to pay back the scars that one had from the lies of the lover at once like the thunder. ‘Smile On My Face’ is an R&B ballad song that combines the soft melody with the lyrics about a guy who is healing himself of the scars from breaking up and letting go the lover with a smile. ‘Oasis’ is an urban pop song that compares the journey to seek an answer to questions about life to oasis. All eleven songs will give off various charms of EXO.
