D,Ark’s title track, 'GENIUS (Feat. CHANGMO)' is a hip-hop track that is mixed with addictive hooks, bars, and an impressive 808 bassline. The witty lyrics are quite the catch as he describes himself as a talented “Genius” since his talent was in the spotlight early at a young age. The track was written and composed by D.Ark himself, and PSY, and other producers have also participated.

When asked how “CHANGMO” was featured in the title track, D.Ark answered,

“The title track was inspired by CHANGMO’s ‘Maestro.’ I always admired CHANGMO’s works, and he was also my mentor during “High School Rapper 4.” I wanted to make something better, but it was hard to beat the original, so I asked for CHANGMO’s help and that’s how he ended up being featured.”

CHANGMO, who served as D.Ark's team mentor during "High School Rapper 4," helped with featuring and music video appearances.

D.Ark introduced the remaining tracks of the album and said ‘SCUM (Feat. Moon SuJin)’ is one that he was very attached to during production because he was able to express my thoughts of how he sees the world right now.

After introducing his album and a brief interview, D.Ark performed his title track, ‘GENIUS’ for the first time.

Its hooks are addictive and bright. It certainly was a track filled with confidence sung by a young genius rapper, but it was not arrogant. It was a confidence that comes from knowing where he stands and the future, he holds for the world to see.
