From the moment it begins, you know "Black Swan" is different from anything BTS has done before.

As of January 18 at approximately 9 AM KST, "Black Swan" is #1 on iTunes song charts in the U.S, Canada, Great Britain, Russia, Mexico, India, Argentina, Germany, and more.

As previously promised on the band's detailed "comeback map", Black Swan was released on Friday along with a contemporary music video directed by YongSeok Cho, which the band called an "art film".

Compared to the light-hearted nature of their previous era Persona, which saw BTS discussing finding their true self through love, 7 appears to be about fear. The track has two versions: the first which is used in the music video features string instrumentals with BTS' a capella vocals while the studio version (available on all streaming platforms) features piano and a rolling trap beat. The phenomenal choreography meshed with the orchestral instrumental and lyrics created a truly moving atmosphere to really bring to life the meaning of the track.

On January 17 at 6 p.m. KST, BTS shared their pre-release single "Black Swan" for their upcoming album "Map of the Soul: 7", along with an art film for the song.

Map of the Soul: 7, BTS' fourth studio album, will arrive on February 21.
