During their interaction, the boys were asked about their title track ‘0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) feat. Seori’. Revealing how they collaborated with the singer, YEONJUN said, “We all have five different voices, and they are great, but we thought we could deliver different kinds of emotions if we had more diverse voices. So we thought that Seori’s voice would go well with our title track. We reached out to her and she happily accepted the offer.”
TAEHYUN added, “Seori interpreted the song in a way we hadn’t expected and it went really well with all our voices too, so it was a real surprise.”
BTS band leader RM also played a major role in the making of the track. Noting that his contribution to the song lyrics made headlines around the globe, SOOBIN explained, “Our producer told us that he had been working on the lyrics and he had been stuck for three weeks because he couldn’t bring out the lyrics he liked. He then asked RM, ‘Can you write the lyrics to this song, if you like it?'”
To the band’s amazement, RM “gladly agreed to help us” he said while going on to add, “For the title track, we had another possible track other than 0X1=LOVESONG. Everyone had mixed opinions on which song we should go with. RM pitched his opinion that 0X1=LOVESONG is better so we decided to go with that.”
He also quipped that although the producers and RM had mixed opinions, “RM won!”
HUENINGKAI also added, “When I heard that RM participated in writing the lyrics, I ran across him at the office and thanked him saying ‘Thank you for writing the lyrics.'”
Going on to reveal the words of advice he received from his fellow K-Pop artist, he quoted RM and said “No problem! Please sing it nicely’.”
“I want to take this opportunity to thank him again and I hope he enjoys this song,” HUENINGKAI said.
TXT’s new title track made headlines when it was revealed that RM has co-written the song with the likes of Melaine Joy Fontana, hitman “bang” and others.
‘0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) feat. Seori’ is the collaborative effort between producers of HYBE’s labels Slow Rabbit and “hitman” bang, American singer-songwriter and Rock Hip hop artist Mod Sun and No Love For The Middle Child as songwriters, and RM of BTS who helped pen the lyrics.
The song expresses a boy’s (TXT‘s) certainty in the love he feels for a girl (fans and listeners) who came to them in a world of chaos. The title uses numbers to visually represent that in this world of zero (0), ‘you’ are my one (1) and only.
