While many musicians remain weary of releasing new music during the pandemic, BTS continues to buck the trend by dropping BE, their second project of the year.
Presented to the public in at a tidy eight track package, the newest LP addition to the boy band’s collection is significantly smaller than their earlier album Map of the Soul: 7 (that featured 20 selections). Their new project speaks directly to the pandemic and its consequences as BE sports “Dynamite,” a peak achievement in pure fun that’s already topped the Billboard Hot 100.
Listen to the fifth BTS full length.
In addition to full length, the Korean kids released a visual for “Life Goes On.” that has garnered over 86,000,000 views within 24 hours (following their record-breaking “Dynamite,” with the highest ever YouTube 24-hour debut, reaching 101.1 million views in the first day.)
