BTS and GOT7 Latest Album

Annyeong everyone~~ In this post, I am going to discuss about BTS’ and GOT7’s latest album as said on the title 😁 Both BTS and GOT7 recently had their comebacks with the album WINGS for BTS and Flight Log : Turbulence for GOT7. I am going to discuss them, hoping that this can help you learn more about their latest album.

In the last posts, “About GOT7” and “About BTS”, if you noticed, I posted “About GOT7” first before “About BTS”. I won’t lie, I know that BTS is a lot more popular than GOT7. The reason as to why I posted GOT7 first before posting BTS, is that you could say I wasn’t confident enough about writing BTS’ biography since I just started liking them only recently. But to be fair, now am I going to discuss about BTS’ newest album first. Even if I wanted to go by alphabetical order, it will still be BTS first.

Before starting, I wanted to remind you that this post is gonna be a hella long one as it discusses the tracks of the album one by one. Anyway, without my further blabbing, here we go..

BTS Latest New Album :

WINGS

This their 2nd Full-length album. The album consists a number of 15 songs, in which 7 of them are solo songs representing each member. The titled song or as you can say track, is Blood, Sweat, Tears (Hangeul : 피땀눈물). If you haven’t watched the MV yet, I recommend you watch it as it is outstandingly remarkable. It is really different from BTS’ previous MVs as it is more superior. The MV has a feeling of elegance and luxury to it. Now to the tracks on the album.

1. Intro : Boy Meets Evil
Starting of with the introduction, Boy Meets Evil. If you look back to their previous MV “Save Me”, you will see that at the end of the MV, the screen turns pitch black and in the middle shows the writing “Boy Meets _” and then the MV suddenly ends, leaving some fans, or ARMYs feel curious. When you realize this now, that is actually a hint or spoiler to BTS’ next album WINGS. This track illustrates their darker side of the album’s overall concept.

2. 피땀눈물 (Blood, Sweat, Tears)
This is the title track of the album. It is really smooth and energizing. It is a pure boyband, love-obsessed track. If you decipher the lyrics, you will realize that it is filled with sweet confessions, such as “Even my blood, sweat and tears, Even my body, heart and soul, I know that it’s all yours.” and “Baby, I don’t care if I get drunk, I’ll drink you in now, Your whiskey, deep into my throat.” These particular lines are poisonous and will melt your heart.

3. Begin
This is the starting of the solo tracks ahead. It is sang by none other than BTS’ golden maknae, Jungkook. It starts off with mellow, steady instrumental as the tempo escalates with the rhythm. You can clearly hear Jungkook’s smooth voice which could make you feel relaxed.

4. Lie
This is the second solo track after “Begin”. It is sang by BTS’ other lead vocal, Jimin. The song begins smoothly as it later becomes high-pitched with the translated lyrics “Caught in a lie, Find me, Who is innocent.” and “Get me out of this hell.” It’s catchy chorus immediately made the track one of the fans’ favourite.

5. Stigma
This is the third solo track after “Lie”. It is sang by BTS’ second youngest, “V” or Taehyung. Although fans often tease him “alien”, his deep voice is incredibly catchy and smooth. One of the lyrics when translated becomes “Are you calling me a sinner?”

6. First Love
Moving on from the vocals’ solo tracks. This is the first track sang by BTS’ rapper, “Suga” or Yoongi. It is an oddly playful rap over a laxed melody. The title “First Love” refers to love for your mother as this track recollects on days of childhood.

7. Reflection
This is the fourth solo track, sang by a rapper  just like “First Love”. This track is indeed another one of Rap Monster’s masterpiece. It starts with an English intro and gradually settles to Korean. As always, he presents us with such great lyrics, such as “I know every life’s a movie, We got different stars and stories, Our scenarios ain’t just boring.”

8. MAMA
This is another one of BTS’ rapper solo track. It is sang by the most lively member, J-Hope. It has a really catchy and addicting chorus “Hey MAMA.” This track is originally presented to his mother.

9. Awake
This is the last solo track, sang by BTS’ oldest member, Jin. This track seems to go down on memory lane as it conveys a deep and emotional story. The lyrics “ I can’t fly like the flower petals over there, Or as though I have wings, Maybe I, I can’t touch the sky, Still, I want to stretch my hand out” is really emotional.

10. Lost
This track is sang by all of BTS’ vocals, both lead and main vocals. Being sang by Jungkook, Jimin, Jin and “V” or Taehyung, it is really nice to hear. You can hear their smooth voices going through your ears. It will really make you fall in love over the song.

11. BTS Cypher Pt. 4
This is an upbeat song sang by the 3 BTS rappers, Suga, J-Hope and Rap Monster. They will “woo” you with their steady beats and rap strength. As for the name “BTS Cypher”, it is quite familiar as it has previous parts (Pt. 1, Pt. 2, Pt. 3)

12. Am I Wrong
The song rides off the previously funky vibe and sassy sound of “MAMA”. It has a real athem-like theme to it and features a lot of shouts and chanting.

13. 21 세기 소녀 (21st Century Girls)
This song also rides off the funky vibe and sassy sound. Just like “Am I Wrong”, it also features a lot of shouts and chanting. If you search for the category “21st Century Girls”, then you can find that it refers to girls being born from the year 2001 to 2100.

14. 둘! 셋! (그래도 좋은 날이 다 많기를) – Two! Three! (Still, there will be better days)
This song tries to remain optimistic, both in sound and lyrics. BTS tries to keep their realistic image through lines like “Let’s only walk on flower trails, I can’t say that. Let’s only see good things from now on, I can’t say that either, Saying that there will only be good things from now on, Saying that you won’t get hurt, I can’t say that, I can’t lie like that.” This song is particularly saying that everyday may not be good, but there is something good everyday and BTS wants you to experience that with them.

15. Interlude : Wings
This track ends the album as it is the last song in the album. It has an upbeat tempo and is good to listen to. Yet again, BTS boast some sweet high notes, inspirational word and an enjoyable beat.


GOT7’s latest album :

FLIGHT LOG : TURBULENCE

This album is the continuation of GOT7’s album “FLIGHT LOG : DEPARTURE”. The album consists a number of 13 tracks. All of the members participated in the composing and songwriting of most of the songs in this album. This album has a manly and slightly dark feeling to it. The titled song or track is Hard Carry (Hangeul : 하드캐리). The MV no longer begins with a whisper of “JYP”. The MV has a totally different feeling from other previous MVs. It begins with showing Jinyoung upside down in a car. You could say I also recommend you to watch it. Now to the tracks.

1. Skyway
This is the first track from the album. It is a great opening to the album. As said above, all the members participated in the composing and songwriting most of the songs in this album. For this track, Defsoul (JB’s pen name) participated in both the songwriting and composing.

2. 하드캐리 (Hard Carry)
This is the hard-hitting titled track of the album. It is really aggressive and fierce. It also energetic and upbeat. The tune is amazing with tons of layered sounds. With the chorus of “하드카리해” (“Hard Carry Hey”) repeatedly, it will struck to your mind as it is addicting to hear.

3. Boom 3x
This is the third track of the album. In this track, there is again a variety of sounds. This song is somewhat playful and has Jackson written all over it, as he actually participated in both the songwriting and composing.

4. Prove It
This is the fourth track of the album. This song is undeniably smooth. And along with skyway, Defsoul (JB’s pen name) also participated in both the songwriting and composing. As the one who created this song, JB’s voice really fits the song perfectly.

5. 노잼 (No Jam)
This is the fifth track of the album. It is a song played for laughs and showcases their playful style with a beautiful realized party tune. The title means “No Fun”. Mark, Jackson, BamBam and participated in the songwriting while Yugyeom participated in both the songwriting and composing.

6. HEY
This is the sixth track of the album. It is another fun-loving and snappy tune that shows off the main vocal, Youngjae’s sweet voice and style. This is the first song on the list which Ars (Youngjae’s pen name) participated in both the songwriting and composing.

7. Mayday
This is the seventh track of the album. The chorus will take you to a new height as it is quite attractive. This is the first song on the album in which Jinyoung participated in both the songwriting and composing.

8. My Home
“My Home” is the eighth track of the album. It has sweet and catchy lyrics such as “Your my one and only home girl” and “I’ll be your one and only home boy”. Mark participated in both songwriting and composing the song.

9. Who’s That
“Who’s That” is the ninth track of the album. It has catchy tune in the beginning and begins with BamBam’s part. Sadly, no member participated in creating this song as Jam Factory participated in the songwriting.

10. 만약에 (If)
“If” is the fourth last track, being the tenth track of the album. It is quite catchy like the other tracks of the album. Both Mark and BamBam participated in the songwriting.

11. 아파 (Sick)
This is the third last track, being the eleventh track of the album. This song has a slow tempo at the beginning and begins with JB’s part saying “Yeah, uhh baby”. Ars (Youngjae’s pen name) participated in the songwriting while both Mark and Jackson participated in the composing.

12. 니꿈꿔 (Dreamin’)
This is the second last track, being the twelfth track of the album. The tune is quite catchy just like the name of the song “Dreamin”. BamBam participated in songwriting and Defsoul (JB’s pen name) participated in both the songwriting and composing of the song.

13. Let Me
This is the last track of the album. It has a slow tune and begins with JB’s part as his smooth voice calms you. The chorus “Let me hold your hand” is catchy and addicting to hear. Mark participated in both the songwriting and composing of the song.

I am finally done in discussing both BTS’ and GOT7’s latest album. I hope that my post will be a bit of help for those who wants to know or learn more about their latest album. As both an ARMY and an IGOT7, I recommend you to listen to the whole album, without leaving a single song behind.

And so, I will now end this post. See you on my next post, annyeong everyone~~ 😁
