The lead single, “Fighting,” features South Korean rapper Lee Young Ji and aims to be a morning anthem. It is followed by the B-sides “LUNCH,” a pop R&B number meant to help combat midday drowsiness, and “7 PM,” a relaxing evening tune featuring Peder Elias.
Hoshi, DK, Seungkwan and fellow SEVENTEEN member Woozi all co-wrote “Fighting” alongside Lee Young Ji. The four members also penned “LUNCH” together, while Woozi and Peder Elias co-wrote “7PM.”
