RM raps to a squadron of dancing cyborgs in trailer for BTS’s new album Map Of The Soul: Persona

March 27, 2019

We're mere weeks away from Map of the Soul: Persona, the fourth studio album from South Korean boy band sensation BTS. While the lads have kept most details of the new project under tight lock and key, today, they offered the first glimpse of what's to come.

The high octane clip hones in on RM (Kim Nam-joon) in an empty classroom, laying down bars on the status quo. Eventually the camera pans out to reveal RM addressing an oversized hooded avatar and a whole squadron of dancing cyborgs. "Persona, who the hell am I," he raps. "I just wanna go, I just wanna fly." Though the clip plays out like a music video, it's unclear as to whether the whole song was used for the trailer.

Map of the Soul: Persona is out April 12 via Big Hit Entertainment.
