The Humble Members Of BTS Don’t Mind Living With Cracked Phone Screens…Except One
In the unfortunate circumstance where your phone comes crashing to the ground, there are two types of people: Those who can’t stand having a cracked screen and instantly get it fixed, and those who couldn’t care what it looks like as long as it still works properly!
BTS‘ anthology album Proof will be here in 22 days, ARMY. Are you ready? In the weeks leading up to the album’s release, members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have been getting personal with their fans about their inspirations for the record — which serves as a celebration of the K-pop group’s ninth anniversary — and on Thursday (May 19), it was Jungkook’s turn.
“I added ‘Euphoria’ and ‘Dimple’ to this album. To tell you the truth, I like it best when I get to sing with the other members and connect with ARMY no matter what the songs are. That’s what I’ve been dreaming of. Even now, I love it when I sing and dance, and I’m incredibly happy when I hear the roar from the audience when I perform,” Junkook said in a 51-second snippet, which features photos of the group and its fans.
He continued, “I’m always happy when I’m on stage, and I’m glad there are people who become happy seeing me on stage. Every single day I thankful and I enjoy myself. Me happily making music while watching ARMY and your smile as you watch me, these are my proofs.”
Proof will be released on June 10 in a three-CD set consisting of previously unreleased tracks and demos, their biggest hits and deep cuts from their discography. The set will also include three completely new tracks, including upcoming lead single “Yet to Come.”
Former Wanna One member Ha Sung-woon and BTS‘ Jimin spend a second week at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot Trending Songs chart (dated May 21), powered by Twitter, with their collaboration “With You.” The track holds at the summit with 3 million Twitter mentions in the May 6-12 tracking week, according to Twitter. It’s just the third song to spend multiple weeks at No. 1 since the chart began last October, following BTS’ “Butter” (20 weeks) and SB19’s “Bazinga” (seven)
It’s a notable week on the chart overall for BTS, thanks to Jimin’s duet, “Butter,” other solo hits for the group’s members – and the Hot Trending Songs debut of a BTS song not even released so far, the aptly titled “Yet to Come.”
BTS and its solo members combine to claim the top six spots on Hot Trending Songs for a second week. “Butter” ranks at No. 2, followed by JIN’s “Yours” (No. 3) and “Super Tuna” (No. 4), Jung Kook’s “Stay Alive”(No. 5) and V’s “Christmas Tree” (No. 6).
Plus, BTS scores its sixth entry to-date on the survey, as its unreleased track “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” debuts at No. 14. The group announced May 6 that the song is the lead single from its album Proof, due June 10.
Elsewhere on Hot Trending Songs, Vietnamese singer-songwriter Son Tung M-TP scores his first chart entry with “There’s No One at All” at No. 13, after the track’s official video premiered April 28. The song is his first official English-language release.
