Singles[edit]

"Bilang Saja"[edit]

"Bilang Saja" (English: Just Say) is the first single of the album. The pop rock song criticizes men who will always do everything to get what they want without knowing the problems they have caused, as shown in the first verse of the lyrics Lelaki terkadang selalu ingin memaksakan apa yang mereka inginkan untuk memiliki, sebelum semua menjadi semakin masalah (Men sometimes want to forcefully [get] what they want to be theirs, before all gets into trouble). The music video, however, draws hip hop influences.

"Indah"[edit]

Penned by Indonesian pop singer-songwriter, Melly Goeslaw, "Indah" (English: Lovely) is an R&B/urban-influenced pop song. Released as the second single, the protagonist of the song demands her lover to give his love and convinces him that he will not regret loving her. The music video for "Indah" is influenced by hip hop dance and culture.

"Cinta Mati"[edit]

"Cinta Mati" (English: Love to Death) was released as the third single. The song was written and features Indonesian pop rock record producer and singer-songwriter Ahmad Dhani. In the song, the protagonists of the song tell how big their love is, as they sing Cintaku sedalam samudra/setinggi langit di angkasa/kepadamu/cintaku sebesar dunia/seluas jagad raya ini/kepadamu (My love is as deep as ocean/as high as the sky in the space/for you/My love is as big as the world/as large as this universe/for you). The music video for the song features both artists singing with Agnes singing in the coldness and Ahmad Dhani singing and playing piano surrounded by fire.
