K-Album Review: ‘Map Of The Soul: 7’ by BTS

This year, on June 13th, the world-famous K-pop band, BTS will celebrate its 7th anniversary. The group, consists of 7 members; RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook; released their much-awaited album ‘Map of the Soul: 7′ on 21st February, 2020. This album holds special meaning for all the group members as it reflects their journey of seven years with each song depicting their own personal stories and thoughts. The songs of the album include revisiting previous themes to show the contrast from members’ initial days in comparison to where they are today. Each member gets their turn to tell their story individually as well as with sub-units songs which in my opinion has more impact. Map of the Soul:7, with a track list of 20 songs, is followed by its previous album Map of the Soul: Persona, with 5 of the original tracks being included from the Persona album; and is one of the group’s most ambitious album ever.
