Original (ITZY official site): "ITZY는 그룹의 아이덴티티와 색깔을 효과적으로 표현한 첫 디지털 싱글 앨범 'IT’z Different'의 타이틀곡 '달라달라'로 가요계 등장을 알린다. 타이틀곡 '달라달라'는 특별한 개성을 지닌 5명의 멤버들이 만나 유니크한 조합을 탄생시킨 것에 기안해 기존 K팝의 형식을 깨고 새롭게 제작한 'Fusion Groove(퓨전 그루브)'트랙이다. EDM, 하우스, 힙합 등 여러 장르의 장점을 취해 한 곡에 담아냈다. 가사는 세상의 중심에 선 '나'를 존중하고 사랑하는 내용으로, 존재 이유와 의미를 찾는 이 시대 개성들의 취향을 정조준한다. 그간 대중이 기대했던 '틴크러쉬', '걸크러쉬' 매력을 제대로 충족시킬 사운드와 메시지를 지녔다."
