During the jazzy alt R&B tune, the duo, who frequently work together on EXO’s releases and side projects, spend their time ruminating on how it’s good to take a break sometimes from daily stressors, to take a “Slow Walk” rather than always running forward.
With a relaxed melody and motivational, rhythmic chorus, the song features the pair reflecting on how running to chase dreams sometimes leaves an individual behind. Mq and Chanyeol — who uses his producing moniker Loey on the song — remind listeners, and themselves, that it’s okay to take things slowly sometimes.
The song was released alongside a music video that features the pair performing the song on a rooftop in Seoul, simply jamming along to their tune.
