V received hundreds of congratulations for releasing the track “Blue & Gray” on BTS’s new album.
The kings of K-Pop, BTS, made their long-awaited comeback on November 20, as we reported on Somagnews. Unless you live under a rock, no one can miss the buzz around BTS’s long-awaited album ‘BE’.
The comeback is extraordinary in many ways, as the BTS members themselves have personally shaped this album with a hands-on approach, from a visual direction, from concept curation to production.
The members went through stiff competition to include their proposed songs on the album, but “Blue & Gray” made a special direct entry on the album, which was selected from the long-awaited V mixtape.
The song became the most critically acclaimed song on the album. It made V the only member to have two production credits and songwriting and lyricism (Skit, Blue & gray), making it her fourteenth song credited by Komca.
