Black Mamba was written by Yoo Young Jin. The lyrics introduce the unique world of aespa in a storyline where the Black Mamba is a villain threatening the world and blocking the connection between the aespa members and their “æ” avatars.

The group consists of Korean members Winter and Karina, Chinese member Ningning, and Japanese member Giselle. The name aespa is a combination of the character æ, which represents the phrase “avatar x experience,” and the English word “aspect.”
