The 3 Best Songs On BTS Map Of The Soul: Persona Album

BTS Map Of The Soul: Persona Album

It's been a week since the much anticipated BTS Map Of The Soul: Persona album was released. The album was incredibly hyped and rightly so. BTS is HUGE nowadays. But did the album really live up to the hype? I think so. During my first listen I was a bit sceptical. However, I've now had a good chance to listen to each and every track in full, multiple times in fact. Many of the tracks have really, really grown on me. I can hand on heart say that I am really enjoying Map Of The Soul: Persona. Therefore, I feel like now is a good time to share some love for my three favourite tracks on the Korean boyband's sixth extended play. 

Now many of you might be shocked to see that the much talked about Dionysus hasn't made it on to my little list. Honestly? It's a banging track. However, I've just found myself wanting to listen to the other tracks mentioned below that little bit more. But that doesn't mean to say that I don't really like Dionysus, because I do. Anyway, without further ado, here are the 3 best songs on the album, according to me of course.

Boy With Luv (feat. Halsey)

The first of the 3 best songs on BTS Map Of The Soul: Persona for sure has to be the title track Boy With Luv. This track is super upbeat and has a kinda disco vibe which is sure to make you want to have a little dance. It kind of reminds me of TXT's Crown in some ways. The track is super happy and will for sure get stuck in your head, even after just one listen. Boy With Luv also features US female singer Halsey. I'm always a bit sceptical about collaborations but Halsey's vocals work surprisingly well on the track. For me, the highlights of the song have to be Jimin's angelic vocals and Suga's unbelievably deep rap.

Make It Right

The second of the 3 best songs on BTS Map Of The Soul: Persona would have to be Make It Right. This is a track that was co-written by Ed Sheeran. However, oddly I don't think it has that signature Ed Sheeran sound to it. However, in my opinion, I'd say that's a good thing as BTS really have put their own stamp on the track. Make it right is an R&B pop track that features a prominent synth trumpet which I'd usually find highly annoying but it adds another satisfying layer to Make It Right. 

For me, the highlight of the song is definitely Jungkook’s falsetto. I also really like V's vocals on the track. That's not to say I don't enjoy all the other member's parts, because I really do. I just feel like Jungkook & V stand out on Make It Right. I feel like Make It Right is definitely an underrated track that deserves more love as it really is great quality.


The third of the 3 best songs on BTS Map Of The Soul: Persona would without a doubt have to be Mikrokosmos. Out of all the songs on the album, I'd have to say that I personally find Mikrokosmos the most beautiful track. The song features trap drums and rock guitars throughout. It contains some of the most beautiful lyrics and I feel like it really showcases the group's vocals. This is fairly different from your typical K-Pop track and I like it a lot. Perhaps this is the direction BTS will be heading in the future? Who knows. One thing is for certain, Mikrokosmos is an absolute tune and one I've had on repeat. 

So there you have it, my favourite 3 tracks from Map Of The Soul: Persona. What do you think of the album? How do you think it compared to the likes of Love Yourself: Answer? Do you think Boy With Luv is just as good as BTS's previous title track Idol? Which member do you think really shines on the new album? Although I enjoy each and every member, I feel like Jimin, Jin, Jungkook and V have really stood out on this album. The vocals just seem to be incredibly strong. That's not to say the rap line hasn't been good because it's been epic. It's just I feel like the vocalists have grown so much and that's really shown throughout this extended play.
