During a recent media showcase for their latest comeback, (G)I-DLE leader So-yeon said, “Our new album ‘I Love’ is truly an album about love. It talks about many kinds of love, and has many different emotions. And through all of it, we wanted to embody the process of finding true love. The true love we ultimately ended up with is self-love and to be loved just as I am, which is why the first track is ‘Nxde.'”
 The mini-album is packed with six tracks in total: “Nxde,” “LOVE,” “Change,” “Reset,” “Sculpture” and “DARK (X-file).” So-yeon suggested following the mini-album’s narrative by listening to track No. 6 first and ending with track No. 1.
