In their new music video for "The Best Thing I Ever Did" TWICE took a look back on and appreciate what they have done over the past year.
Released today (Dec. 12), “The Best Thing I Ever Did” is a sweet, wintery pop tune full of twinkling bells and a lilting piano melody. Lyrically, it's a love song, but the accompanying music video features the women looking back on their time together, and shows them sitting in a theater watching videos of themselves during the past year. It ends with them playing in the snow with reindeer, singing the hopeful verse: "Just like this, like this, like this/ Let us never change."
According to a statement from TWICE’s label JYP Entertainment, the song is about “taking a moment to review the year in December, the most precious memory is meeting people who we love” and is about TWICE’s bond with their fans, known as ONCE.
A holiday season-inspired song, “The Best Thing I Ever Did” was written by J.Y. Park,the founder of TWICE’s label JYP Entertainment; he worked with several other songwriters, including TWICE’s labelmate Jimin Park, on filling in the verses alongside the chorus portions.
“The Best Thing I Ever Did” is the lead single on TWICE’s The Year of “Yes” album, an extended re-release of November’s Yes or Yes. Aside from the single, it also features an Korean version of “Be as One”. The album features a total of nine tracks between those originally released on Yes or Yes and the new songs.
