“Freeze” tells the “tale of a boy who has frozen as a result of the onslaught of the world,” Big Hit said in a press release.
The album consists of eight songs including the title track “0X1=LOVESONG (I Know Love You)” featuring Korean singer Seori with lyrics co-written by BTS’ RM.

TXT has scored back-to-back achievements with “Freeze.” It smashed at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and retained its place on the charts for six consecutive weeks.
To date, “Freeze” is the longest-charting album by a Korean act this year.
“0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You)” rose to No. 18 on Billboard World’s Digital Song Sales in its seventh week alongside their track “Anti-Romantic” which re-entered the chart at No. 19.
“Anti-Romantic” sits at No. 43 in Spotify Philippines Viral 50 and No. 27 on Spotify Global Viral.
Dubbed as K-pop’s “4th Generation It Boys,” TXT is a five-member group consisting Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Hueningkai.
The band rose to prominence with their debut track “Crown” in March 2019.
