Background of “24/7” – The Story behind the Twicetagram Release
On September 8th, 2017, a lot of reports spread among media outlets about Twice having begun shooting a music video in British Columbia, Canada. On September 25th, JYP Entertainment announced further information about the comeback. It was said by JYP Entertainment that the comeback would take place in late October.

Story of “24/7” – A Track about a Repetitive Lifestyle
As I’ve told you before, the group once mentioned that some of the members penned some of the sidetracks’ lyrics. One of these sidetracks is “24/7”, it was written by Nayeon in collaboration with Jihyo. The composers of this song were Daniel Caesar, Ludwig Lindell, and Cazzi Opeia. One of these composers, Daniel Caesar, also arranged this song. Caesar made the arrangement of this song by collaborating with Loui.
This song is somehow frustrating at first, because it’s telling a story about how boring it is to have the same lifestyle every day. Anything that is repetitive can make a person frustrated, as well as a repetitive lifestyle.
But in the middle part of the song, that person just enjoys that lifestyle, and that person always remembers to seek entertainment or excitement for her. This song is somehow very soothing at last, because she decides to join her friends to entertain herself by going to a party.
