I think it was a pretty good year in terms of K-pop releases, especially for debut and rookie groups!

Track 1 is Blue Orangeade, which is a track that is the most similar to their title track Crown in that they are both very upbeat and poppy, what you would expect from your typical K-pop song with catchy beats and chorus.
