Stay Gold: Jimin and Jungkook's harmonisation is a winner as BTS' latest single will calm your troubled minds
"In a world where you feel cold, stay gold," croons Jungkook, in the beginning two lines of Stay Gold, which is the lead single from BTS' fourth Japanese album, Map of the Soul: The Journey. For the unversed, after the rousing success of Map of the Soul: 7, which released on February 21, 2020, BTS announced the Japanese version of the album, which would include 13 tracks. Out of the 13 songs, four of them will be original singles including Stay Gold.
As an early treat for ARMY, Stay Gold was released earlier today, i.e. June 19, 2020, and after listening to the song close to 10 times already, we can guarantee the song as a staple in your playlist. The hopeful lyrics with the calmness, i.e. the talented vocal line of BTS (Jin, Jimin, V and Jungkook), you're transported to your inner dreamland. It's inspirational in today's troubling times and that's what makes Stay Gold such a relevant, terrific track. Moreover, ARMY couldn't get over ChimChim and Kookie's gorgeous harmonisation towards the end of the song while Jin and TaeTae were termed 'angels' for their mesmerising vocals.
But, the rap line of BTS (RM, Suga, J-Hope) is not far behind as their verses had a sing-song element to it. ARMY is always eager to hear the vocal side of the rap line and Stay Gold is a primary example of why.
