Seoul: A week after BTS announced its seventh studio album titled Map of the Soul: 7, the Korean pop boy-band has dropped the first single, ‘Black Swan,’ from their upcoming album.
The new song Black Swan is already breaking records. Reportedly, the Korean boy band’s latest track has topped both, domestic real-time music charts and iTunes charts in numerous countries around the world.
The band released the song on January 17 and the song made its way to some of the world’s top music charts by January 18.
BTS broke their own record for stock pre-orders with Map of the Soul: 7 and is now breaking some worldwide records. The song has hit No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs charts in at least 93 countries, including United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, India and Russia. This marks their highest number to date. About 9 months after dropping their third consecutive Billboard No. 1 album, Map of the Soul: Persona, in April last year, BTS is scheduled to release Map of the Soul: 7 on February 21.
The video of ‘Black Swan’ does not feature any members of the group. Instead, the song is accompanied by an intricate dance performance, executed by seven members of Slovenia’s MN Dance Company.
