Kpop superstars BTS will be releasing a 30-second clip of the title song ON from their highly anticipated new album Map Of The Soul: 7 on popular short-form mobile video site TikTok at 5 am local time on the 21st of February 2020.
Not only will fans be able to enjoy the new song 12 hours ahead from the official release of the entire album, but they will also be able to create exclusive TikTok videos with the music. Big Hit Entertainment, the company that manages BTS, recently released the new album’s full tracklist on their social media platforms sparking much anticipation from their fans.
The album will feature a total of 20 songs, 15 brand new tracks on top of the five that have already debuted in their previous album Map Of The Soul: Persona. One thing that really got fans excited was that BTS are also collaborating with American singer Sia to release a special digital exclusive version of the song ON.
BTS has already made waves when it comes to their mass appeal to the American and international audience, so it’s great to see this continue with more international collaboration. After all, with the success of their previous smash hit Boy With Luv (ft Halsey), I’m sure fans wouldn’t mind seeing more of this.
According to The Korea Herald, the pre-orders for “Map of the Soul: 7” have already reached 4.02 million copies as of Monday, making it the biggest pre-order ever for a South Korean album.
At the beginning this year, BTS have finally announced the Map Of The Soul tour with a schedule set to start in Seoul on April 11. This is the band’s first world tour since their last world tour comeback ended in April 2019.
The group will then head to North America and Europe before ending their tour on the 2nd of September 2020, in Japan.
