It was, at the time, the singer’s last release in her native country for over five years, until the release of Hurricane Venus in August 2010.

To promote the album, “Girls on Top” and “Moto” were released as singles from the album. Similar to her previous Korean release, the album also received an oversea version, including a Mandarin version of the eponymous lead single, “Girls on Top”.

An English version of the title track is on BoA’s debut English studio album, BoA (2009).
