BTS cranked up the Festa 2020 party on Thursday (June 4) with Jungkook’s first solo release, the ethereal, jazzy ballad “Still With You.” Eagle-eyed fans had already anticipated there was something major coming today, which marks one year to the day that the K-pop group’s Jin dropped his solo ballad, “Tonight.”
Over tinkling synths and gently strummed guitars and brushed drums, Jungkook croons, “When will it be?/ If I face you again/ I will look into your eyes/ And say I missed you/ In a rapturous memory/ It’s raining when I dance alone,” before sliding into the sweet chorus. “We may not be on the same page/ But I want to walk this path with you/ Still with you.” (Translation courtesy of Genius).
Besides a new song from one of their members, BTS expressed solidarity this week with the Black Lives Matter movement. They said in their rare political statement Wednesday that they “stand against racial discrimination” and “condemn violence.”
