We are just one week into the new decade and BTS have decided to bless us with the news of their comeback!
Today the group took to Weverse to announce that ‘Map of the Soul: 7’ will be dropping on Friday, February 21st. At the moment, we’re not sure whether to expect this to be a full album or another EP, but either way – new music from our boys is EXACTLY what we need!
This new project follows on from last year’s EP ‘Map of the Soul: Persona’ and with only one comeback last year, this is will follow the same storyline from the 2019 release.
The announcement follows shortly after a tour being teased on Twitter back last month, where Big Hit tweeted on Christmas Eve to stay tuned for April 2020.

Of course, with this big announcement drop the ARMY has lost all sense of the word “chill” and managed to dominate the worldwide trends on Twitter immediately.
Of course, their reactions were broadcasted through the bird app once more, so we just had to share a few of our favorites…
If this ain’t a mood, we don’t know what is…
HATE when this happens, but catch us researching more for this than any exam in our life.
There was absolutely no need to call us out like that but go off
Some fans decided to try and research more into the significance of the number “7” to try and decode what the release could be about.
so i was doing some research n apparently the n7 is sacred to dionysus for many reasons, one of which being bc he gifted his wife Ariadne the Corona Borealis in their wedding which is a constellation of 7 stars that we also happened to see in the mma dionysus stage…#7IsComing pic.twitter.com/4XrtzlsJ7O— ً ella ♡ (@giggIykoo) January 7, 2020
This one blew our minds a little…
seven members?— ona (@ilsansqueen) January 7, 2020
seven deadly sins?
seven types of ‘ego’?
And other fans even found Easter eggs…
BTS already gave us hint about “7” in MAMA 2019😮😱😳— ❄️ʙᴀɴɢᴛᴀɴ ᴛʀᴀɴs & ᴘɪᴄs❄️ (@leys_ash) January 7, 2020
“The 7 years we have been together, always exists in 7 members of BTS” #7isComing @BTS_twt #BTSisComing#MAPOFTHESOUL7ISCOMING
Even with as little information as just a number can send an entire fandom spiraling but that’s just how it is when you’re a stan, you know?
ANWAY, bottom line is: BTS Comeback next month. AND WE CANNOT WAIT!
Are you ready for the comeback? What theories do you have about the album? Is the number 7 full of deeper meaning than we realize? Let us know what’s on your mind down in the comments below or by tweeting us @TheHoneyPOP
