‘The best moment will come now’: BTS releases new album 'Proof'
"Yeah! The past was honestly the best, but my best is what comes next."
In the title song "Yet To Come" of the new album "Proof" released by the group BTS on the afternoon of the 10th the members sang about their past, present, and future.
On this day, BTS released an anthology album "Proof" that summarizes their nine years of activities. The album contains a total of 48 songs and consists of 3 CDs.
The title song has a bright medium-tempo and alternative hip-hop melody with lyrics about looking back on the past and looking forward to the future. The members expressed their deepest feelings through lyrics such as "Not sure since when, but they say we're the best. Full of these unfamiliar names. Now they just feel heavy, we just loved music. We're just running forward. Promise that we'll keep on coming back for more."
The music video for the title song "Yet To Come" surpassed 10 million views as of 3 PM on the 10th on YouTube. That is within two hours of its release.
"Yet To Come" took first place on domestic music sites such as Melon and Bugs. New songs such as "Run BTS" and "For Youth" are also entering the charts one after another.
The second new song "Run BTS" is an up-tempo song where you can feel the spirit of BTS, who has been running since they were trainees. The last new song "For Youth" contains a message that BTS members want to convey to their fans, ARMYs.
In addition, the title song, unit song, and solo song of the previous album were included in this album.
Among the b-side songs, "Run BTS" and "Born Singer" were judged "unsuitable" as a result of the KBS music review. This is because of its lyrics that use profanity and vulgar language. "For Youth" was judged as "on hold" for not attaching the lyrics to the 30-second concert hall sound effect inserted at the beginning of the song to the deliberation document.
Member Jungkook said, "It feels like writing a very thick book and finishing it."
"Proof" could be the last album before BTS goes to the military in turn. Jin, who was born in 1992 and is the eldest of BTS, will have to enlist in the military by the end of this year unless the current military service law is amended.
Meanwhile, BTS will unveil the stage performance of "Yet To Come" for the first time on the official YouTube channel "BANGTANTV" on the 13th. After that, The HYBE boy group plans to perform on music programs such as Mnet, KBS, and SBS.
