Wanna OnePark Ji Hoon said, "We couldn't have come this far without incessant support from Wannable (Wanna One's fan club). I would like to express my gratitude for all those who like us."
Wanna OneKim Jae Hwan added, "It was such a delightful journey. We had so many challenges, and I have no regrets. At this moment, I wish I could solely focus on how we will try harder for our future stages."

The newly-released album, '1¹¹=1(POWER OF DESTINY)', holds 11 tracks that beautifully narrates the members' musical journey for the past one and a half years, and their strong will to overcome sorrow and fear of disbandment.

The emotional lyrics represent the 11 members' mixed feelings toward their upcoming farewell, but it also hints that the group's disbandment will not be their eternal goodbye.
Wanna OneKang Daniel said, "The process of preparing for this album was like running a marathon. It really feels like we are now running past a water station, and gearing up for our one last sprint. We will run faster and harder for our epic stages."
