“‘XOXO’ and ‘Dumb Dumb’ were both candidates for the title track. We couldn’t choose one over the other, so we decided to pre-release ‘Dumb Dumb’ and make a comeback. fast with “XOXO”, “the singer explained during a live media presentation. “‘XOXO’ has the message ‘with love’, but mine is sarcastically, like he’s saying ‘alright, go have your life.’ The melody is easy to follow and I think it’s a good catchy song.
“I want to show my confidence with the new album. If I showed a relaxed attitude with ‘Dumb Dumb’ I have confidence now, “she added.” I can really have fun on stage now, and I hope to do the same with it. ‘XOXO’ I hope that with the album, I can consolidate my position as a solo artist.
