Twice made their third comeback in 2017 by releasing the 4th extended play called Signal on May 15, 2017. In that EP, the song entitled “Hold Me Tight” is included and set as the fourth track. JYP Entertainment made an announcement about the release of both the EP and the song on April 18. Through this comeback, Twice collaborated with their producer, J.Y. Park “The Asiansoul,” for the first time since their debut for the lead single with the same name as the EP, “Signal.”

Also, by releasing this song, the leader of Twice, Jihyo, joined again to promote the group as a whole after taking a break for some time because of a knee injury.

Story of “Hold Me Tight”

Judging from the lyrics, it looks very clear that “Hold Me Tight” by Twice talks about the anxiety of a woman who is waiting for a confession of love from the person she likes. Unfortunately, even though she has given many signs and chances, the man is still insensitive. She wants to take the initiative and make a move first, but she is too shy to do it.

JYP Entertainment released “Hold Me Tight” by Twice on May 15, 2017. It was written and arranged by Jowul and distributed by Genie Music. The music of this song was composed by Jowul, Scott Granger, Brian Judah, Johnny Marnell, and Roahn Hylton.
