To celebrate the release of their latest Japanese language album, BTS are giving away a special 18×24-inch black and white poster commemorating Map of the Soul: 7 ~The Journey~. The album was released earlier this month to digital and streaming platforms, while a variety of physical editions will be available August 7. Fans can enter for a chance to win the poster here, until the sweepstakes ends on August 3 at 11:50 p.m. PST.
Map of the Soul: 7 ~The Journey~ marks the K-pop superstars’ fourth Japanese-language album. The LP includes Japanese versions of the band’s biggest hits, like “Boy With Luv,” “Dionysus,” “On,” and “Fake Love,” plus four new Japanese songs: “Your Eyes Tell,” “Intro: Calling,” “Outro: The Journey,” and lead single “Stay Gold.”
The album debuted at No.1 in Japan, and broke records for the highest first day of sales in the country – both by a foreign act and a Korean artist. Map of the Soul: 7 ~The Journey~ also stands as Japan’s best-selling album of 2020 to-date.
BTS is also dominating the Billboard World Albums chart, with Map Of The Soul : 7 ~ The Journey ~ currently sitting at the No.4 spot. The South Korean septet has a whopping total of eight releases on the chart, including the original Korean edition of their latest release, Map of the Soul: 7, at No.1, and their 2018 compilation, Love Yourself: Answer at No.2.
Most recently, members of the boy band announced that they’ll be dropping a new, English-language single on August 21. During a V LIVE broadcast, the group also revealed that they are working on a new album. Luckily, fans have plenty of content in the meantime, including Junkook’s dreamy cover of Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber’s “10,000 Hours,” which the BTS member shared yesterday.
