Exo-CBX (Korean엑소-첸백시 Exo-Chen-Baek-Xi; stylized as EXO-CBX) is the first official sub-unit of South Korean-Chinese boy group Exo. Formed by SM Entertainment in 2016, the group is composed of three Exo members: Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin. Their debut extended play Hey Mama! was released on October 31, 2016.

History[edit]

2016: Formation, debut and Hey Mama![edit]

On July 29, 2016, Chen, Baekhyun and Xiumin appeared in a video titled "Reservoir Idols" during Exo's concert tour Exo Planet 3 – The Exo'rdium. They then released an original soundtrack titled "For You" for the SBS television drama series Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo on August 23, 2016. As a result, it was speculated that they would form Exo's first sub-unit. This was confirmed by SM Entertainment on October 5.[2] On October 23, they performed "For You" for the first time as a unit at the 2016 Busan One Asia Festival.[3] On October 24, the unit's name was announced to be Exo-CBX (shortened from ChenBaekXi), after the first letter of the members' stage names.[4]

On October 31, Exo-CBX released their debut extended play Hey Mama!, which contains five tracks with a variety of genres including electronic dance, R&B ballad and retro pop,[5] along with the music video for the title track.[6] The group made their debut performance on M Countdown on November 3.[7] On November 6, the "Reservoir Idols" video was officially released as a music video for "The One", one of the tracks from the album. Hey Mama! topped the Billboard World Albums chart[4][8] and South Korean's Gaon album chart. Later in November, Exo-CBX recorded a remake of the original soundtrack "Crush U" for the game Blade & Soul. They performed the song on November 18 at the N-Pop Showcase concert, part of the 2016 Blade & Soul world championship tournament.[9] On December 25, "Crush U" music video was released.[10]

2018–present: First Japan arena tour, Blooming Days and Magic[edit]

In January 2018, via an online program on LINE, they announced that they have prepared for their first Japan arena tour called "Magical Circus" in May and June.[11] The tour had eight shows with four cities in Japan, including: Yokohama, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Osaka.[11][12] On April, the group released their second Korean mini album Blooming Days.[13] CBX's first Japanese studio album, Magic, was released on May 9.[14][15]

In February 2019, it was announced that the group would have Special Edition concerts of their Japanese tour "Magical Circus" in April.[16][17]
