An upbeat dance-pop track that infuses elements of hip-hop, the new single features members Taeyong, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Jaemin, Lucas, Xiaojun, and Shotaro. “Make A Wish (Birthday Song)” encapsulates the theme of the new album by encouraging listeners to pursue their dreams.

NCT was originally formed as a concept group in 2016 characterized by the division of localized sub-units in various cities throughout the world. Their debut effort NCT 2018 EMPATHY reached the top 5 of Billboard’s World Albums chart upon its release and has since been certified platinum in Korea thanks to its popular singles such as “Without You” and “Baby Don’t Stop.”
