South Korean boy band BTS on Friday marked the start of a new era of their musical recordings with the release of an extended play (EP). It is the opening album in BTS' new "Map of the Soul" series following their two-year-long "Love Yourself" album trilogy that won two No. 1s on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Some are saying it could reach up to 60 million. "Make It Right" is another hotly-awaited collabo track featuring Ed Sheeran.
Sheeran first revealed that he wrote a song for BTS in an interview with Heat back in November 2018. The "ST" could mean "suggested title" since the song talked about someone rough past.
Coinciding with the release of the group's new album "Map Of The Soul: Persona", the appearance is predictably generating a lot of buzz.
To hear the whole album, listen to the track list here. "Mikrokosmos" is an examination of one person's small but vast universe. Not only do they have a casual 17 million subscribers on YouTube, but their fans, united under the moniker #BTSArmy, have produced levels of fandom that have been compared to Beatlemania.
The sixth track "Jamais Vu" is a joint work by the BTS' subunit of three members - J-Hope, Jin and Jung-kook - while the final track "Dionysus" is a hip-hop number featuring Jin's rocking vocals, according to Big Hit. It's a new record for BTS who previously held the record of over 1.5 million pre-orders.
