    BTS tends to be front-loaded artist in the US. They fail to have longevity. As fans, this is something we need to work on.

    That was the case before but Dynamite is holding so well. See I feel like this is catch 22. You said Columbia is not interested to push BTS because they don’t have staying power past week 1 but they also never had that before because they didn’t get industry support . They got some with Dynamite and look at it. Stable queen , nr 5 in week 8 . I realise that is also because it’s in english but the radio play is helping as well as all the performances.

    There is little we can do when Columbia drops BTS like a rock in week 2 with their korean releases and gives it no radio or playlisting.

    i’m not really sure what route they’ll take, but it saddens me that after all this time and everything bts has given to columbia (not one but two #1 songs this year) we still have to worry they’ll be done dirty with promotions. i get they just have a distribution deal, but bts already proved they’re a force to be reckoned with and are more than worth the investment. it’s just frustrating that even then, we have to plan assuming we’ll be on our own. by the way, when do y’all think the standard version preorders will be released? i feel like army is getting on edge with only a $50 deluxe version available.

    I believe somebody wrote to weverse customer service and asked about the standard version and they replied and pretty much confirmed that it will be coming. I’m hoping they release it this week.

    And about that first part I agree :((((

    I hate that we have to plan with no industry support again. And I really want us to do well with BE and do good numbers to show BTS that we appreciate their sincerity and lyrics and message above all. Especially that nr 1 with a korea track written by them. It’s the goal I want them to achieve with BE the most and a grammy nom for something they contributed too but I am getting ahead of myself

    The one thing I can say, people who have relied on bundles will see a difference in debuts and those fandoms who didn’t have to work hard to support, will be scrambling and not adapt quickly enough. Army as a fandom has continued to innovate and work harder when faced with any barrier, we understand our weaknesses, the charts, and the grind. Every win we are grateful for, just like the guys who have faced countless pushback from the industries in the east and west. BTS has no limits on what they can accomplish, the world is their oyster, and the beauty of their music taste blends into each album.  I do think we need to continue spreading goals on multiple platforms since not everyone is on Twitter. I am happy to see many new fans each yr, that growth is tremendous. Also, BTS knows how to play the game well, they know how the industry works and who to avoid or confront. All of them are smart and you can’t go wrong with Yoongi or Joon.   From a guess maybe we’ll get jazz, lo-fi, R&B, or rock? Either way, they will always surprise us.  Also, I have a feeling that we’ll get some big collabs coming soon within the next 6 – 8 months.

    I’ve fallen down the theorists rabbit hole over the last couple of hours concerning BE. So many interesting theories, so many plausible. Hey, it’s part of the fun of a Bangtan CB! I read somewhere that Adele’s release date is the week following BE. That should allow us that initial chart topping success. I agree that our challenge will be getting radio to play a possible all Korean single. Even w/ the support behind Dynamite we have had to be relentless with radio requests & now millions of Shazams to get decent play no matter their playlisting placement. The early metrics on Dynamite show how reluctant radio was to give it any real airtime. We seem to have moved past that now with many stations showing enthusiastic support. HOWEVER, an all Korean single? We better be ready to gear up for battle with that one. ARMYs have made some solid in roads though, we’ll see. I believe the album overall will be a huge success. Lacking of longevity hopefully is a part of our past now. We’ve learned A LOT promoting Dynamite while taking cues from BH as always and this time CR as well, ARMY is ready. I’m hoping standard release pre sale will go live by week’s end.

    I can’t do theorist rabbit holes. I’ll end up looking too much like a clown and I’m already halfway there….#aritan.

    Jimin has earrings with flowers in the concept photo and Ariana has flower earrings in the leaked cover for her album so they must be collabing right? Aritan is confirmed. 🤣🤣 /s

    I do hope it’s real even tho tbh I don’t think I’d want it as the title track for BE . but it would be a shame and waste of potential if it wasn’t promoted as a single

    LMAO! Hey, it’s an ARMY necessity to keep the clown gear handy. However, should you be curious how BE might tie into the MOTS or Bangtan Universe it’s intriguing to say the least. There are ALOT of clues.

    As for ARITAN, will believe it when I see it. The clues, JK at her show, their pic together, her having that pic as her phone screen saver, the pics of Ari & Bangtan together (sans Yoongi) in LA, them liking her Twitter account last week. Still…I’M NOT CONVINCED. I think there will be a collab on the album, but likely someone completely unexpected.

    Dynamite less then 300k away from 500m on YT.

    And we just crossed that 500M threshold. 59 days, the new record for a musical group on the YT platform, 11th highest across the entire platform, all categories.
    Edited to add: They now have 10 music videos past the 500M threshold. Boy w/ Luv 8M away from the 1Billion mark.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>

    Honestly I hope this comeback has nothing to do with BU. BU is not a BTS creation and the boys seem to have moved past it already which is why Bighit has been doing everything to continue the story in alternative forms and profit of it without the boys involvement (book, webtoon, game, drama). I’d much prefer if the boys got free reign concept wise since this is a the most BTS-esque album and I hope it shows us real BTS members, not the fictional version of them. And I think the story has already been well explored and developed enough that we can go for something new.</p>

    But I’m excited for aritan possibilities. Saw someone on reddit theorizing the collab might be in her album and festure 1/2 of the members (JK for sure). Still waiting for the Grammy Bangtan Bomb to see them interacting with her

    Ariana’s album is about sex. No way BTS is on it.

    Any theory connection drawn to BU was thin, mostly tied to color similarities, room layouts, the similar piano to the one in Fake Love, the use of windows in the concept photo & their similarities to the rooms in the Fake Love & Epiphany mvs. See? Thin. A little stronger to the MOTS. I simply mentioned them, I don’t subscribe to these theories.  I will draw my own, or not, when the album is released and I have listened to it a dozen times on the first day.

    BE will be different, it will be personal, it may be melancholy. I CAN’T WAIT.

    As for BS&T part two, right there w/ ya Jelly, YES PLEASE.
