“What Do I Call You”is the title track for this album, and is described as an R&B pop song that features minimal and rhythmical melodies accompanied by Taeyeon’s calm and effortless vocals. Surely, the song will captivate listeners’ hearts, especially with its relatable lyrics as it is about the lingering emotions a person has after a breakup.

Next on the album is the emotional song, entitled “Playlist”. It is a lovely song with acoustic guitar, piano and retro organ sound combined with the ever soft and soothing voice of Taeyeon. The lyrics include a playlist containing one’s memories and affection towards a loved one.

The fourth mini album’s third track was “To The Moon”. It showcased Taeyeon’s versatility as an artist as she actively participated in the writing and composition of the song.

The next track “Wildfire” gives off Taeyeon’s bright and lively energy. The lyrics of the song feature the poetic comparison of a cheerful guitar synth to a flame wildly spreading in an open field just like how love is also spread from one person to another.

Along with her comforting voice, the song offers a warm pat on the back with the wish that everyone will feel happy.
