|EXO singles chronology|
Wolf is the lead single from the first studio album XOXO by the South Korean-Chinese boy band, EXO.
Currently, the single is included in Superstar SMTown, but seperated into EXO-K and EXO-M version.
The album's lead single, 늑대와 미녀 (The Wolf and The Beauty), known in English as simply Wolf, was composed by Will Simms, Nermin Harambasic from Dsign Music and S.M. Entertainment resident songwriter Kenzie. Kenzie also provided the lyrics for the Korean version of the song while Zhou Weijie penned the lyrics for the Mandarin Chinese version, 狼与美女. Yoo Young-jin provides background vocals. The dance for the song was choreographed by Tony Testa. In several shows such as Arirang's After School Club, the members explain that the dance has 3 elements: the trees and forest, the caves, and the wolf itself. Member Kris revealed that it took them approximately 3 to 4 months to get the choreography down, due to its level of difficulty. A demo version of the song was leaked in February 2013, in response to which producer Ryan Jhun later gave a warning to illegal downloaders on May 29, 2013, "...I will report it to FBI and service department for all links..."
