BTS's new album 'Proof' to drop June 10
Boy band BTS will drop its highly-anticipated album “Proof” on June 10 at 1 p.m., midnight in Eastern Standard Time in the United States, according to industry insiders on Monday.
The anthology album encompassing the K-pop sensation’s nine-year career consists of three CDs. The album features 48 tracks in total, including three new songs: “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment),” in which members RM, Suga and J-Hope participated in writing, “Run BTS” and “For Youth.”
Overall, the album aims to tell a story about BTS’s past, present and future as a veteran K-pop idol.
“This year, BTS celebrates the ninth anniversary of its debut and is about to open a new chapter — their 10th year as artists,” said the boy band’s agency BigHit Music. “This album aims to look back on BTS’s activities over the years and ruminate over their meaning.”
After the album drops, BTS will star on Korean television channels’ music shows such as Mnet’s “M Countdown,” KBS’s “Music Bank” and SBS’s “Inkigayo” to perform its new songs. This is the boy band’s first appearance on domestic music shows since March 2020.
After the record-breaking commercial success of “Butter” (2021), which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks total, anticipations are mounting for “Proof.”
