For Millennials. By Millennials.
EXO just made their comeback earlier today and it’s safe to say that everyone is obsessed with it now. The group made their long-awaited comeback with their sixth full album Obsession. The title song Obsession released earlier today at 6 pm Korean Standard Time and since then the hashtag ObsessedWithEXO has been trending worldwide. The hashtag currently has over 1.4 million tweets.
EXO Fight Themselves in the Obsession Music Video
The concept for this album was that each member of the group has an evil counterpart. It’s basically EXO vs X-EXO. We know, its an intriguing concept and it gets even more interesting with the music video. The music video visually portrays X-EXO and EXO engaging in an epic fight. Check it out below!
The Rest of the Album
It won’t be wrong to say that all 10 songs on the album are absolute bops. All of them are distinctively different and of different genres. The album incorporates the concept of EXO vs X-EXO. You’d be listening to one song and its sexy rnb, while the other would be with soft vocals and just warm.
The album contains a total of 10 songs and honestly, they’re all number 1. However, personally, I found Non Stop the best. It has become one of my all-time favorite EXO songs now. The tracklist includes:
- 01 Obsession
- 02 Trouble
- 03 지킬 (Jekyll)
- 04 춤 (Groove)
- 05 Ya Ya Ya
- 06 Baby You Are
- 07 Non-Stop
- 08 오늘도 (Day After Day)
- 09 나비효과 (Butterfly Effect)
- 10 嗜 (Obsession)
The Fans Are Obsessed
And rightfully so. The moment the album dropped, EXO-ls started trending different hashtags for the comeback and there came a moment when the first five worldwide trends were EXO related. Check out some of the fan reactions below.
Sorry Love Shot, but Obsession wins this round.

Talk?!! We’re ready to do a Phd on them.
Seriously, who’s doing it like them!
EXO is talking up 15 worldwide trendings. This is just a testimonial to their power after 7 years. In an industry were things are so oversaturated, overdone, and recycled, they reinvent themselves every single time with something new and refreshing. I'M HERE FOR THAT!

EXO is back at the Top
With the release of their new album, the group has once again proved their power and relevance. Even with three members absent in this comeback, EXO still remains on the top. The group has topped all major Korean Music charts and is the only K-pop group that has gotten 2 of their songs at the number on the biggest music chart in Korea. When we say impact, we mean EXO!
The group is doing wonderful internationally too. It hasn’t even been a day yet but the music video of Obsession has already gotten 6 million-plus views and 1.3 million likes. The album has topped in over 60 countries on Itunes and has sold over 240,000 copies of albums on its first day. The sale number is purely online though.
