XOXO (from Growl – 2013)
XOXO lays out a solid groove and sticks with it for three minutes. It has an appealing, throwback charm even if its ambition is generally low. The percussive piano is a nice touch, but like so many of the group’s tracks, it’s EXO’s layered vocals that truly seal the deal. I love XOXO’s breezy hook. It may not elicit many sparks, but it’s a solid head-nodder in the vein of so many mid-90’s pop/r&b tracks. The song also makes room for some fun rap verses, imbuing XOXO with just the right amount of personality.
