Alright, it’s a real battle out here. This Friday, artists have been fighting to steal the spotlight. From Megan Thee Stallion’s new number to BLACKPINK’s fiery tune, ‘How You Like That’, to the remix of Trevor Daniel’s track, ‘Past Life’ featuring Selena Gomez – hoo, give us a minute to catch our breath. The day’s been buzzing with these new releases, but now, make way for the charming boys of BTS, because they’re in with the music video for their latest single, ‘Stay Gold’.
Sprinkled between their summery, uplifting chorus, ‘Stay Gold’ also sees a bout of impressive rap verses which ultimately makes the tune well-balanced and rather wholesome. The lyrics to this tune are familiar and warm. Lyrically, BTS isn’t exactly bringing anything new to the table, but their gentle melodies definitely make up for it.
Take a look at one of their syrupy-sweet verses:
Another sleepless night
Playing hide and seek under the moonlight
Dive into your heart, getting closer
Now, coming to the music video, it goes without saying that the sets are impeccable – just like every other BTS music video. We see chipped wallpapers and plants creeping in through windows. We see mattresses floating in water and a room stocked up with towers of books. As expected, the cinematography is stunning. Alright, we’ll stop there, because we’ve already given too much away.
‘Stay Gold’ finds its place on the band’s upcoming Japanese album, ‘Map of the Soul: The Journey’. This one’s set to drop on July 15th, so keep an eye out. But for now, just bask in the glory of their gorgeous music video.
