Canvas is the fifth mini album released by NU'EST. It was released on August 29, 2016. It peaked 3rd in Gaeon chart in 2016.


The album was made on the concept of 24 hours in a day. The songs are arranged in a timely order so the group suggested people listen to the songs in order throughout the day. The album also represents the group's strong music style as they all participated in producing the tunes and writing lyrics.

According to JR, the first track, Daybreak, is good to listen to at dawn. The second track R.L.T.L. is a morning song. From the intro, the song plays like a bird's chirpings which reminds the listener of morning time. The lead single "Love Paint" harmonizes a future bass sound and R&B with a classical orchestra sound. "Love Paint is our first single and it is best to listen to in the afternoon", said Minhyun. The fourth track, Thank You, delivers the boys' gratitude to the fans and the last song Look has a fast tempo conveying a lively and active feeling of the night.
