The title track ‘Don’t fight the feeling’ is a dance pop song comprised of the synth and heavy bass. The music video features the members on a spaceship that is very reminiscent of an aircraft carrier. The spaceship is called Exoplanet and it is theorized that this song marks the beginning of EXO’s journey to fight the Red force.
The music video showcases the some dance breaks and amazing choreography from the members. The lyrics are empowering and motivating. The members encourage fans to overcome fear and embrace their uniqueness. You can achieve all the crazy things you want to do and just follow your instincts, says EXO.
I’m a little different
Trust me on that one at least, yeah
Get drunk on your own style
What’s wrong with that?
You can do anything, yeahEXO – Don’t fight the feeling
The lyrics also takes reference to the SM VR universe Kwangya in the lyrics “Speed across KWANGYA”. Kwangya translates to wilderness and has been referenced before in other SM artists songs. It is theorized that Kwangya is one of the places/planets involved in the EXO Universe.
