BTS Release Epic Music Video For "On," Drop New Album 'Map Of The Soul: 7'
It's a big day for BTS and the global ARMY. Today (Feb. 21), the South Korean boyband and pop superstars dropped their brand-new album, Map Of The Soul: 7. And as an added bonus, they've just released an epic music video for the lead single, "On."
Dubbed the Kinetic Manifesto Film: Come Prima, the visual for "On" is less of a music video and more of a short film. The clip shows all seven BTS members delivering powerful choreography in an empty bridge channel, as the group is surrounded by a cast of dozens of dancers and a post-apocalyptic marching band. In the middle of the song's breakdown, BTS bust into a dramatic dance performance that'll leave you jaw-dropped.
"On" will receive an official music video next week (Feb. 28). The new album also features an alternate version of "On," featuring nine-time GRAMMY nominee Sia.
Map Of The Soul: 7, the group's fourth studio album, is the latest development in a busy year for BTS. At the 62nd GRAMMY Awards last month, they joined Lil Nas X in a star-studded performance of "Old Town Road" that also featured Billy Ray Cyrus, Diplo and Mason Ramsey.
Map Of The Soul: 7 marks BTS' first full-length project since their 2018 album, Love Yourself: Tear, which topped the Billboard 200 chart and solidified the group as the first Korean act to accomplish that record-setting feat. It's also the second installment in BTS' ongoing Map Of The Soul series, which launched with the chart-topping Map Of The Soul: Persona EP last April.
