BTS’ RM Drops Sneak Peek Of Future Mixtape, Army Went Crazy
BTS' RM knows how to quench his fans' thirst since they have been missing him for about a month now after his surgery last month. BTS Army went crazy after RM gave them a glimpse of his next mixtape.
The BTS leader has released a snippet of a song with the caption, "will be in RM 2 someday," on the official Twitter account of the group. The tweet features a multi-track layer workplace where several audio layers of RM's next mixture are playing. The snippet lasts for only 25 seconds.
The tweet and the "RM 2" have been trending worldwide on Twitter since. The tease also marked the third year anniversary of RM's first solo mixtape, titled RM. Since releasing his debut mixtape in March 2015, the BTS leader worked on the group's music and his solo projects including his collaborations with Wale and Fall Out Boy.
BTS's RM, also known as Kim Nam-Joon, has undergone nasal surgery early last month. The K-pop idol's representative Big Hit Entertainment confirmed that he has been recovering at home. RM had a deviated nasal septum which is a condition of the nose that involves the displacement of the bone and cartilage in the nose that separates the nasal cavity in the nostrils. The condition causes breathing difficulties and requires treatment.
BTS Next Album
Aside from RM's next mixtape, BTS fans are also preparing for the K-pop band's third Japanese album, titled Face Yourself. It is set to be released on April 4. The upcoming LP includes the Japanese version of the band's hit songs like "Mic Drop," "DNA," and "Spring Day."
There were also reports that the album will also include three never-before-heard tracks. One of the songs, titled "Don't Leave Me," was leaked online last week. The song is said to be the official soundtrack of a Japanese drama, Signal.
"This is our first time singing a drama theme song, and we are honored to participate in the theme song for a drama that was successful in Korea. We completed a perfect track," RM said in a statement (via Soompi.)
In February, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook made another history. Both of their songs - "Mic Drop Remix" and "DNA" - were certified Gold record by the Recording Industry Association of America. This makes the K-pop group the first ever Korean act and the only K-pop artist to receive two certifications. "MIC Drop" and "DNA" have sold over 500,000 copies in the US alone that secures the Gold certification from RIAA.
