The eight-track album ushers in a more mature direction for BTS, both in terms of sound and subject matter, with the group’s trademark K-pop beats and passionate vocals intermixed with elements of rock, funk and hip-hop. The summer smash, “Dynamite,” meantime, is a breezy, disco-lite track, while the official lead single, “Life Goes On,” has been dubbed “alternative hip-hop,” thanks to its quiet acoustic strumming and laid-back rap flow.
BTS get more personal on the new album as well, with all seven members earning songwriting and producer credits on the record. The lyrics echo the fear and confusion many people felt in 2020, without losing a hopeful message of love and resilience. It’s something BTS has always promoted — positivity and optimism — and the new album continues those themes, as the guys sing about finding joy and unity in the midst of difficult times. Similarly, a press release explains that the album title, BE, stands for “to be” or “existence” and does not abide by any form.
