BTS Drops Second Comeback Trailer “Outro Ego”
Watch the second comeback trailer for Map of the Soul: 7 in the form of “Outro: Ego”
The wait is finally over as BTS has finally dropped the second comeback trailer for Map of the Soul: 7 in the form of “Outro: Ego” today (February 3, 2020). BTS second comeback trailer features rapper and dance leader J-Hope. You can watch it on Big Hit’s YouTube channel.
The latest song released through a music video begins by referencing the intro track and debut trailer for BTS’ very first album, 2013’s 2 Cool 4 Skool, and features J-Hope ruminating on the choices that, while not always easy, have led him to where he is now as a member of BTS, seven years since the act’s debut on June 13, 2013.
“I go back every day / To me of yesterday / To the life of giving up / I let myself go away / But in this world, you know / There are truths unchanged / Time rushes ever forward / There’s no ifs, buts, or maybes,” he raps, referencing his own journey with BTS.
“Life not of J-Hope but Jeong Ho-Seok flashes by / It must have been full of regret with no hope till I die / My dancing was chasing ghosts / Blaming my dream, asking why I live and breathe,” the translation of the official lyrics reads.
J-Hope acknowledges the ups and downs in the road, ultimately accepting his “fate” as a symbol of hope. “Seven years of anguish come out finally / Oppressions all resolved / Into my heart come answers from my most trusted / Only one hope, only one soul,” he sings.
Notably, Ego is the third release off BTS’s upcoming studio album, Map of the Soul: 7 after Interlude: Shadow and Black Swan.
Speaking about the album, RM had earlier told James Corden, “It’s been seven years since our debut and we have seven members here.”
“Seven is a really special number for us and we’ve practiced so hard for these tracks and the dance routines. So please stay tuned for the album,” he added.
