Songfacts®:

  • Twice is a nine-member South Korean girl group. JYP Entertainment put them together in 2015 after they won the reality girl group survival show Sixteen. Twice have released several covers of English-language songs, but this is their first original English single.
  • The nu-disco track finds the girls telling a guy he's stolen their heart. Having outlined their attraction to him, they hope the boy will make the next move. "The message is 'Don't hide your feelings. Follow your feels when you like someone,'" said Twice's Chaeyoung in a video on their YouTube channel.
