Hip-hop Dance Song Full of Wild Beauty! Leading the New Future in NCT 127 Style!
The single, 'Ay-Yo,' is a hip-hop dance song with an intense drum line and wild vocals by the members. The lyrics contain a message that NCT 127 will continuously create sustainable values in its own way and move forward amid an uncertain future, a change in the environment that seems to last forever, and a new era that demands ethical transparency.
The newly added song, 'DJ,' is a funky up-tempo genre song that reinterprets the jazzy sensibility of the 70s along with the lyrics where the members, who became DJs, promise to give a special moment with the playlist they made. The intense hip-hop song ‘Skyscraper’ captures the members’ challenging ambitions to endlessly overcome their limits and rise higher, like a skyscraper that seems to kiss the cloud above the city.
