"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.

Listen to Stay Gold from BTS Japan Official's tweet below:

What did you think of BTS' Stay Gold? Let us know your views in the comments section below.

Fans surely were confused, however, as to why there was no music video accompanying Stay Gold. However, Stay Gold MV will be shown for the first time in Japan on the TBS' CDTV Live! Live!, a four-hour special broadcast on June 22, 2020.

Moreover, Stay Gold will feature in the upcoming Japanese drama, Spiral Labyrinth: DNA Forensic Investigation OST.

Meanwhile, Map of the Soul: The Journey, which releases on July 15, 2020, will also include INTRO: Calling and OUTRO: The Journey along with Your Eyes Tell, which is a ballad composed by Jungkook.

Anonymous : JK MOST LOVELY STRONG VOICE. You have fun with Jimin, but you are so very much younger than what i saw with you and Tae. There was a deeper meaning in your relationship. It was wonderful to see for many years. I don't understand how different you are with playful Jimin. You both appear to be loving friends on a light, no serious type of relationship. Jimin I doubt has the courage to go against his family wishes. Jimin for the four years I watch never showed any depth in gay matters. He seems to shy away nor confront anything seriously. I have wondered why except it is much safer for him and you not to go any further to learn or find out about choices and what is meaningful. Trust you true nature don't hide yourself behind silliness and would be good to read and enter into another learning not only playing. Read opening of the field. Strong book. Thank you for all your sweet self.

Because I saw the Pied Piper lyrics and I'm taking it to heart. JiKook's harmonization was no joke. It was so good, vocal coaches were shook. I loved Yoongi, Namjoon and Hobi's vocals. They ALL have gotten so good, better and better over the years. Like, just when you think that they can't get any better, BOOM! They drop new song/s on us and leave us shooked. Borahae BTS and ARMY!

The article mentioned all members so no need to be insecure! anyways jikook harmonization is superior and it was definitely beautiful and stood out and Jimin and Jungkook did amazingly though out the whole song. Great article!

Of course they have individual achievements as well but as for their group song ...Sorry to say if u think that jikook harmonization made stay gold a winner!!!! That's a joke

Singularity 3. Friends (he did this with Jimin, but its good) If you like Jin's voice, then listen to: 1. Moon 2. Epiphany 3. Mama . I guarantee you won't regret it!

Don't waste your time on commenting on how bad Jungkook - or any of them - is if you can't love them all. Heck, just leave the fandom if you can't appreciate their voices.

Vocal ability across the board again proves they are simply THE best. The bar has again been raised, the mic dropped. Thank you BTS for again lifting my spirits into the heavens. No choice but to continue to stan HARD and for life. Borahae ARMYs, stay safe and healthy. Cannot wait to belt STAY GOLD with our Bangtan boys and my fellow ARMYs Soon!

Jungkook hugs jimin, jimin talks about jungkook. Like seriously bruh? I respect the ship but please give equal importance to other members as well. im not jin biased but i thought jin's high notes were to be highly appreciated.
