Once again BTS has broken another record, with their first single pre-released “Black Swan” from their upcoming album ‘Map of the Soul: 7’. It hit platforms earlier at 6PM KST, and it sky rocketed to #1 in 90 countries around the world, and #1 in iTunes UK becoming the FIRST Korean song in history to do so. The song is itself, is a different side to BTS, co-written by RM, describing how they fear that the more they do music, the less it excites them. At the beginning of the music video, a quote reads “A dancer dies twice-once when they stop dancing, and this first death is more painful,” by Martha Graham. BTS shows us with this, the fear they would feel when they are not standing on stage as artist anymore.
The song is incredibly deep, and much fear in it; but the track is definitely worth it. The music video is something that will go on to be iconic. It is amazingly performed by MN Dance Company.
