The song was released as a prelude and promotion to the girls’ upcoming 2nd album.
The song is already leading So Nyeo Shi Dae’s ‘Oh!’, which it was first revealed on 25th January. Looking at the music charts results on 11th February, the song is up at #1 on all charts except for one or two charts where it is competing for #1,2 positions.
