Made up of 12 electrifying, genre-bending tracks – ranging from hip-hop, R&B to dance and pop – the record sees the 10-piece collective team up with an A-List team of globally renowned songwriters and producers including Dem Jointz (Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna), Cutfather (Kylie Minogue, Pussycat Dolls) and KENZIE (Girls’ Generation, SUPER JUNIOR, NCT) to produce an album filled with experimental and impactful top-tier bops that effectively demonstrate the groups knack for creating killer hooks and hypnotic melodies that continuously stay occupied in the mind for days!
Opening with ‘Faster’, a hip-hop dance number where NCT 127 share their aspirations, before transitioning into the synth heavy, beat-driven vibe of lead single and album title track ‘2 Baddies’, the record ebbs and flows effortlessly as the group successfully manage to dominate and embody each of the musical styles they explore with relative ease.
