BTS will return with a new single in nine months.
The boy band will pre-release a single to be included in the 4th regular album ‘MAP OF THE SOUL: 7’ through the online music site at 6 pm on the 17th.
BTS officially releases the new song as a team, not as a mix tape or an unofficial solo song, about nine months after the release of ‘MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA’ in April last year. In addition to the information of the pre-release single, even the title is unknown. As a result, the attention of music fans in Korea and around the world is set to 7:00 pm on Korean Time.
BTS sang the joy of love and interest in the world in ‘MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA’, the first work of the new ‘Map of the Soul’ series after the ‘Love Your Self’ series. It is not known what story will be included in ‘MAP OF THE SOUL: 7’.
However, as Suga’s comeback trailer ‘Interlude: Shadow’ released on the 10th contained the responsibility and fear of the success of BTS, the upcoming album is expected to capture the depth of anguish that BTS members feel at this leap forward.
‘Seven’ is the number of members and the length of their activities since their debut in 2013, so it is expected that seven members would have drawn organically seven each colors.
BTS’s new song early heralds topping the music charts. At present, ‘Any song’ by ZICO topped the online music charts in Korea. ‘Any song’ is popular through word of mouth, such as dance challenges of stars, but it is inevitable to hide as the comeback of ‘One Top’ BTS is announced.
In addition to the domestic charts, the US Billboard main chart ‘Hot 100’ is noted what grades to set. BTS has already set a record of three consecutive albums in the Billboard Main Album Chart Billboard 200.
The 10th place with ‘FAKE LOVE’ and 11th with ’IDOL’, Boy with Luv’ continued to rise to the 8th, so it is highly expected that the upcoming song has another new history in K-pop and world pop history.
Meanwhile BTS’ new album ‘MAP OF THE SOUL: 7′ exceeded 3.42 million pre-orders for a week. This is the highest pre-order volume of all BTS albums, with sales of more than 700,000 copies compared to the last album.
