K-pop groups do not always make a comeback by releasing an album containing several songs. Sometimes, they only release a special single accompanied by one other song. Likewise with Twice who on October 18th, 2017, released their first Japanese maxi single titled One More Time. But, the song that we are going to discuss here is another song that was also released at the same time as this single; the song titled “LUV ME”.

“LUV ME” itself is a companion song that was released at the same time as One More Time by Warner Music Japan as the second track. “LUV ME” also has an instrumental version that is included in the single as the fourth track.

Here is the full audio version of Twice’s song “LUV ME” that has been uploaded on Twice’s Official YouTube Account.
