In conjunction with their performance at the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V,and Jungkook sat down for an interview with KIIS FM’s JoJo Wright from Korea and revealed that their upcoming LP is still in progress. “It’s going to be a little different than the single, so stay tuned,” RM admitted of the project, which is scheduled to drop before the year wraps up. It’ll serve as the follow-up to July’s Map of the Soul: 7 – The Journey.
While “Dynamite” exploded at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, the septet admitted that the year hasn’t been entirely positive on their end. “So, 2020 has been quite a rough year for so many people, including us, JoJo, many people,” RM confessed, before admitting that the gloom of the pandemic is what prompted the group to create “Dynamite” in the first place. “We, too, felt desperate, to be honest with you, so we needed a breakthrough from that and focus on what we can do best and it was music and performance. We thought that the world needed some simple, positive energy to vibe, so we put some dynamic on it.”
