BTS Announce New Album ‘Map of the Soul: Persona’
A new BTS album is coming very soon!
The group—comprised of Jimin, V, RM, J-Hope, Suga, Jungkook, and Jin—officially announced they're releasing a brand new album called Map of the Soul: Persona, which will drop on Friday, April 12th right before their upcoming Love Yourself: Speak Yourself worldwide stadium tour. But not to worry because pre-orders will begin on Wednesday, March 13 for fans who wish to purchase the album ahead of time.
Map of the Soul: Persona is BTS's first release since their last album Love Yourself: Answer, which marked the final chapter in their Love Yourself trilogy. The album debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts and their U.S. tour even outsold big artists like the Rolling Stones, Cardi B, and Korn in its first week! We're anticipating their forthcoming album, as well as their highly-anticipated new singles, will be just as successful.
BTS's ARMY obviously cannot contain their excitement and quickly flooded Twitter with reactions over the news. Some fans are even convinced the group has been planning Map of the Soul: Persona for a while now because of Jin's shirt. Check out the best reactions below:
