BTS Jungkook released his new solo single titled Seven on Friday, 14 July 2023 at 13.00 Korean . The youngest member of BTS will show fans a new side that has never been shown before.
“When I started my solo career with the release of Seven, I was able to show you a new side of Jungkook that I had never shown before,” said Jungkook in a promotional video shared by Big Hit Music a few hours before the song was released, as quoted by The Korea EconomicDaily.
The agency said that Seven is a summer song with an addictive and energetic melody. This song is combined with warm-sounding acoustic guitar and UK garage rhythms or electronic dance music genres that originated in England in the 90s. “With the rhythm of electronic music and the feel of summer, this is a song that I want to enjoy with many people this summer,” said Jungkook.
According to Jungkook, Seven’s song is considered a passionate serenade with lyrics about wanting to be with the person you love at all times. “This is an addictive song that everyone can enjoy easily and comfortably,” said Jungkook.
The 25-year-old singer admits that he immediately fell in love with Seven’s song from the first time he heard it. This made him even more excited to perform Seven’s song live in front of fans.
“There aren’t many songs that captivate me as soon as I hear them, but this one is really good. I can already picture myself performing it on stage,” he said.
Bts Jungkook collaboration with Latto on Song Seven.
On the song Seven, Jungkook took American rapper Latto as his collaborator. Latto himself has reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with Big Energy. “I think the charm of this song has increased a little because of the combination with Latto’s good vocal color. I also thought about how to enjoy it with more people while recording,” Jungkook said.
Besides Latto, Jungkook also works with Grammy Award-winning music producer and composer Andrew Watt and Cirkut. The two of them produced and wrote the song. Scooter Braun, CEO of Hybe America, who is known as Justin Bieber’s manager, is also actively involved in the process of song production and Jungkook’s solo projects as a whole.
“Although solo itself was my first time, Seven was the first genre I tried. The process of working on it was also fresh. There were a lot of things I could learn during recording. I think I could improve, and I also came with a musical goal that I wanted to digest more perfect,” Jungkook said.
