It’s officially February 1st in South Korea which means we are only a few weeks away from the release of BTS’ ‘BE (Essential Edition)’. The new edition of their latest album will have new content releases as the days pass by. Kicking off with B-side track ‘Telepathy’, BTS unveiled Suga’s Notes from it.
In a 23-second clip, Suga is recording a demo version of the track as you see instruments like piano and guitar in the background. The funky rhythm focused track, Korean title ”잠시’ means ‘for a moment’. It tells the story of BTS and ARMY and how they couldn’t meet the fans amid the pandemic and how the members are the happiest whenever they meet ARMY. The lyrics reflect the emotions, “In the days that feel the same / I’m the happiest when I meet you / In my everyday life that is different every day / the person that is you is the most special to me.”
It seems like BTS might release individual notes on how ‘BE’ was created during the pandemic. The self-produced album has a contribution from each member and actively participated in the creative process.

On January 25, BTS announced ‘BE (Essential Edition)’ will release on Friday, February 19. The statement read, “During 2020, BTS was able to experience the heartfelt and enduring care and affection of fans and the world, even as we all faced a year of new normality. No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, a nomination for the 2021 Grammy Awards—at every milestone were the resonance and passion of the fans of BTS for the thoughts, feelings and inner reflections contained in their music.”
The statement further read, “With ‘BE (Essential Edition)’, we hope to show the deepest of appreciation to all fans who have stood by BTS in the making of history. We hope that BTS together with all fans will continue on their remarkable journey in 2021. We ask for your continued love and interest for ‘BE (Essential Edition)’.”
‘BE (Deluxe Edition)’ dropped on November 20, 2020,. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 2020 with their title track ‘Life Goes On’ earning No. 1 spot on Hot 100 on Billboard charts. They earned their third No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart (following ‘Dynamite’ and Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s ‘Savage Love – Laxed – Siren Beat’) and first with a Korean song. The title track became the first Korean song to ever top the chart. With record-breaking track ‘Dynamite’, BTS earned their first group nomination at Grammys 2021 in the Pop Duo/Group category.
In ‘BE’, BTS opens themselves up to express their mixed feelings about this situation—fear and anxiety mingled with the determination to overcome all this. The album contains the band’s emotions and ruminations they had throughout this year, and the story of “us” continuing the existential journey. That is also the reasoning behind the album’s title, BE, which stands for “to be” or “existence” and does not abide by any form.
