Jimin dropped the pre-release track to his debut album March 17, 2023. The track is titled ‘Set Me Free Pt. 2’ and is currently doing phenomenally well in terms of popularity and sales. The song has also received a significantly positive response from the listeners. ‘Set Me Free Pt. 2’ has now made it to Billboard’s Hot 100. The song has made its Billboard Hot 100 debut at no. 30! The aforementioned entry marks BTS’ 14th solo entry to Billboard’s Hot 100. Jimin himself made his BIllboard’s Hot 100 debut with his collaborative single ‘Vibe’ alongside BIGBANG member Taeyang. 

‘Set Me Free Pt. 2’ 

‘Set Me Free Pt. 2’ currently has a whopping stream count of over 40 million Spotify. Its official music video onYouTube on the other hand has around 39 million views within just 11 days of its release. The song has an excellent composition that effortlessly blends with Jimin’s emotive vocals. While the song has an evident euphonious appeal, the music video for the song isn’t lacking in any department either. With its essentially grey-black tones, the video brilliantly depicts the ever-haunting feeling of wanting to be set free. The choreography of the song is coordinated to a point that it looks unreal. Watching the official music video of ‘Set Me Free Pt. 2’ is an experience in itself.
