The tracklist has been revealed for the pre-release single of Brand New Music Im Young Min and Kim Dong Hyun’s unit!
MXM’s pre-release title track is “Good Day,” with lyrics written by Wanna One’s Lee Dae Hwi and Park Woo Jin. It is produced, composed, and arranged by Dong Ne Hyeong, Won Young Hyeon, and Lee Dae Hwi.
Dong Ne Hyeong and Won Young Heon have worked on hits such as Davichi’s “Two Lovers,” I.O.I’s “Downpour,” and SEVENTEEN’s “Pretty U.” They shared that the bright vibe of the song fits well with Im Young Min and Kim Dong Hyun and that the duo fully immersed themselves while recording for the track. The producers added, “We do not think that the opportunity for this album was created simply because of the TV program. Young Min and Dong Hyun are ready artists.”
The second track is “I Just Do,” produced and composed by Kim Dong Hyun and Kiggen. Lyrics are by Kim Dong Hyun and Im Young Min, and the arrangement is by Kiggen.
Kiggen wrote “Oh Little Girl” from “Produce 101 Season 2” and NU’EST’s “Daybreak.” His producer notes reveal that Kim Dong Hyun composed the song on guitar, and it was arranged to have a rhythm more fitting for rapping. He ended, “Rather than me providing help as a professional, I was able to receive bright and fun energy from the members.”
