Just TODAY, BigHit Entertainment officially announced that on Friday 18 (yes, tomorrow), BTS will release a Make it Right Remix, featuring Lauv.
With only one day of notice, will BTS and Lauv collaboration be a hit? Well, I can assure you that ARMYs, BTS’ fandom, will give all their support to the collaboration and do anything to make this song #1 in the charts.
About Make It Right
Make it Right is the fourth song from BTS’ last album Map of the Soul: Persona. The album was released on April 11 this year and has already sold 4 million copies worldwide.
Even though all the album is a masterpiece, Make it Right also had a great outcome in the Billboard charts. The song entered the Hot 100 charts at #95, making it the only side track of this album to enter the charts.
How did this BTS x Lauv became a reality?
So, if you don’t know much about Lauv, he is an American songwriter, singer and producer. He debuted in 2015 with his EP Lost in the Light. His most famous songs are I Llike Me Better, The Other and his collaboration with Troye Sivan I’m So Tired…..
About the collaboration, ater the official release, Lauv has been speaking a bit about how this collaboration began.
During a radio interview, Lauv explained how his relationship with BTS started. Before they met in the flesh, BTS had done covers of his songs and shared on Twitter that they liked Lauv’s songs.
Lauv got the chance to finally meet BTS at the Wembley Stadium in London, where BTS’ concert took place. There the group suggested that they should collaborate on a song and BTS’ idea was a remix of Make It Right.
He also said: “I got to rewrite some lyrics in English, and it was a cool process.” So, we will also have new lyrics for this version of Make It Right?
Wait, is this the remix the only thing we will get tomorrow?
So, for those of you who are wondering if we will only have this one song, I have great news. The song will also come with an animated music video.
According to Korean media, the video for Make it Right will also have a compilation of Make It Right stage performances from BTS Speak Yourself tour. This is a moment when they become one with their fans, and carries a lot of emotions for both ARMY and BTS.
Will BTS Make it Right?
One of the things most ARMYs know is BTS struggle to get more radio airplay. But why is radio so important for them in the digital era? Everyone will be able to listen to the new song in every music platform, but still radio airplay is important.
Why is that? Well, because of one of the most important Billboard charts, THE HOT 100 charts, and the one that BTS couldn’t reach the top for now.
The HOT 100 chart criteria focuses mainly on radio airplay, besides sales and streaming. ARMY have covered both sales and streaming, but they cannot control airplay. This is the main reason why BTS has reached #1 at Billboard 200 charts, but not THE HOT 100 chart.
With their last album, BTS reached #8 with Boy With Luv. Maybe this remix will get BTS a higher position. Is this possible? Well, as time passes by, we will know. But for sure all BTS fans will stream the song and request it to radio stations.
Is the new album release getting closer?
After 6 months since the release of Map of the Soul: Persona, fans have been wondering when will BTS new album come out. In the past, BTS usually released at least two mini albums per year.
As the end of the year gets closer, it seems like we will have to wait until 2020 for BTS new album, possibly called Shadow or Ego. But there is still a slight possibility that the album comes out in the upcoming months.
Why is that? Because BTS are going to perform at this year’s iHeart Radio’s Jingle Ball Tour in Los Angeles on December 6 and they may be promoting their new album. But nothing has been confirmed yet, so all of these are just my speculations.
In addition, the only promotion information we had about the song (see Tweet above) has caught many fans attentions and theories started coming up about the connection with their next album and the Jung’s Map of the Soul archetypes. If you are interested in learning more about what this theory is about, check it down below:
