Album’s single, ‘1 Billion Views,’ is a hip-hop song that features funky guitar sound and disco rhythm. The lyrics are referring the heart that wants to continuously see the lover as the repeated replay of a video, and the melodical rapping by SEHUN & CHANYEOL is combined with MOON’s soulful vocals to capture listeners’ ears.

This album also contains solo tracks of each member. CHANYEOL’s solo, ‘Nothin’‘ is an R&B hip-hop song expressing his strong will that he will go his way instead of paying too much attention to other people’s saying. SEHUN’s solo, ‘On Me’, is a trap hip-hop song that sends a powerful message that he will do his best for himself in every moment.
This album also includes ‘Rodeo Station’ which talks about the past memories and present lives with the reminiscence of the Apgujeongrodeo Station that they used to come and go when they were trainees, ‘Jet Lag’ which is a lyrical R&B hip-hop song that depicts a growing yearning and love between lovers who can hardly be together while the time continues to pass by and the distance between the lovers continues to grow. ‘Telephone’ which depicts a guy who became fretful as his girlfriend is obsessed with her phone but still trying his best to look as if he is cool with it, and the instrumental version of the title song, ‘1 Billion Views’, nine tracks in total.
