Trivia

  • The song "No Love" was initally composed by American singer Ariana Grande for her first album Yours Truly, under the name "Boyfriend Material". The song did not make the final tracklist of her album, and executives from her label then sold the rights to the song to SM Entertainment. Korean singer Dana rewrote the lyrics in Korean for f(x).[4]
  • Amber has self-composed the track "Goodbye Summer", initially with English lyrics; South Korean composer Kim Young-Hoo wrote all-new Korean lyrics for the song. Amber recorded another version of the song "Goodbye Summer" for her debut mini-album Beautiful, under the name "I Just Wanna". This version is entirely in English and features the original lyrics Amber wrote for the song. It also features singer Eric Nam.
