Album review: MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 – BTS

In the last year we all know how hard BTS blew up in the world earning the first South Korean artist to become Super Stars in the USA, with various world tours and many interviews. On the 21st of Februari they released their 4th full-length album, MAP OF THE SOUL: 7. This has the hit Boy With Luv and some songs from the album before this one MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA. The first music video of this album came out on the 17th of Januari and BTS has so far blown everyone away with their dance performance at the James Corden show.

BTS has revealed that the MAP OF THE SOUL albums will be more open about their own personal struggles and life. In previous albums they had usually made songs about the general topics people their age faces and each album has become better and better and now with MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA and MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 They want to show they are growing up, showing their true colors and how getting bigger how is changing their life.

“MAP OF THE SOUL : 7” looks back on the past seven years of BTS since their debut as seven members of one team. The journey was not always smooth sailing, and there were special travails that they had to endure in their rise as global superstars. Now, understanding that the scars left by those hardships is a part of their real selves, BTS accepts both “the self I want to show” and the “self I want to scorn” to at last tell their own story of finding their “real and complete selves”. – From BIG HIT ENTERTAINMENT

On this album you can really feel the change of vibe, it has a lot of songs made as solo’s by the groups members which shows their own talent and colors. The album starts with the intro: Persona, a powerful rap by the group’s leader RM. Which sets a playful mood with the samples in the background. Followed by the already well known Boy With Luv (feat. Halsey), whose MV we know as bright and bubbly. Make It Right is a collaboration between Ed Sheeran and BTS, It is a soft ballad with the voices blending well and matching the more hyped Boy With Luv but blending beautiful in the ballad Jamais Vu which sets the right mood before going into the more bop-py Dionysus. Each song flows well into the other and it’s easy to the ear of both fans as new listeners. There’s a lot you can say about BTS but every album is better than the other and again with this one they delivered a banger of a track, slowly releasing MV’s that show how they are also still expanding their choreography each time and this album will probably go far like the previous and even with how short it’s being sold, over two million copies have been sold already. We at Saetori.nl LOVE this album
