EXO-Ls have pointed out some usual noises in EXO‘s highly-anticipated comeback track, “Tempo”.
Fans first noticed the “bed squeak” sounds after hearing an instrumental snippet of “Tempo” in the music video teaser.
In the full version, this squeaking can be heard more subtly, during the chorus.
Once you hear the bed squeaks, it’s impossible to unhear them.

If “Tempo’s” bed squeak sounds familiar, it may be because there’s a similar sound effect used in NCT 127‘s “Baby Don’t Like It”.
