Earlier on February 21, BTS fans waited patiently until the hit K-pop group released their follow-up to their 2019 EP, Map Of The Soul: Persona. Hours before the new album’s launch, BTS even dropped a teaser for “ON”, which is their lead single.
Now, we get to hear the highly-anticipated album in its full glory as BTS dropped Map Of The Soul: 7 at 5:00 p.m. (PST) on February 21.
Apart from the album’s release, BTS also dropped a new music video for the lead single “On.” An alternate version of the song featuring Sia is also included in the album, but it appears as a digital bonus track.
BTS also collaborated with Australian singer-songwriter Troye Sivan on the song “Louder Than Bombs” which is the 10th track of the new album.
Map Of The Soul:7 also features the song “Black Swan”, which was released as a music video on January 17. Unlike past BTS music video releases that featured members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, the video is raw and stripped down featuring Slovenia-based group, MN Dance Company.
