The album features 10 tracks, including the title track "Daechwita," a collaboration with IU titled "Strange," and "Honsool," featuring J-Hope of BTS. Suga was responsible for writing, composing, and producing all the songs on the album.

According to Suga's agency Big Hit Music, "Daechwita" topped the iTunes "Top Songs" charts in 86 countries including the UK, Germany, and France as of 9 a.m. on the day of release. Its music video has also surpassed 10 million views.
