But while both TXT and fans are loving the comeback, that wasn’t the case when TXT first heard the demo.

Writing songs is an intense process, with multiple steps that usually result in various demo versions of the finished release. Sometimes these demos are exciting for the artists, while other times, they can cause some concern, like when TWICE‘s Nayeon first heard the demo for her solo debut “Pop!”.
For TXT, the “Sugar Rush Ride” demo was anything but what they expected. Soobin initially thought that fans were going to have very polarized opinions.
And Beomgyu admitted that all of the members laughed after hearing the demo.
Fans were shocked to hear that the already-well-loved song was so “bad” in the demo.
was it that BAD like 😭 pic.twitter.com/aC1za2W8VG

But, of course, regardless of the demo, there’s no denying that TXT made “Sugar Rush Ride” into a hit song.
you know what I get why txt was doubtful when they received the demo…sugar rush ride was made for txt I can’t imagine anyone else being able to pull off that kind of music it was so good

demos are always unpolished raw songs + the lyrics and the adlibs could be weird too 😭😭😭 https://t.co/yIiTaDCfJF
