EXO’s “Love Shot” Music Video
Produced by Rice N’ Peas, “Love Shot” is described as a pop dance track that features a memorably addictive chorus and a heavy 808 bass. Members Chen and Chanyeol participated in writing the lyrics that talk about hoping to be together and rediscover the meaning of true love, which seems to be disappearing more and more from a dreary world.
Talking to Billboard about co-composing the song, Mike Woods stated that the song was created back in January 2017, and stated that him and the other composers MZMC, Bazzi, Kevin White, and Anthony Russo, “wanted something that was very, very performance-driven, very dance-driven — something that would sound good loud and in an arena. We like the fact that it’s kind of in a different time signature — it’s in 6/8, so that’s not like a generic pop song.” Woods also stated that the original title of the song was “Love Shop.”
