Here's everything you need to know about the track:

The original song is actually called DICE by the K-pop girl group NMIXX.

The six-piece band was formed by sub-label of JYP Entertainment named SQU4D, the same company who formed the successful K-pop girl group TWICE.

Members of NMIXX include: Lily, Haewon, Sullyoon, Bae, Jiwoo, and Kyujin, and last year made their debut (February 2022).

Ad Mare is the name of their debut first single album with the lead single 'O.O,' which was also released in February 2022.

Though the song DICE didn't drop until later on in September 2022 as part of their second single album Entwurf.
