Album contains eight songs from Deluxe Edition
BTS will release BE (Essential Edition) on February 19th via Big Hit Entertainment featuring eight tracks that were available on the Deluxe Edition released last year. However, several of the tracks will differ from their predecessors, with the K-Pop group surprising fans one by one through the album’s release date.
The essential edition encapsulates BTS’ deepest appreciation towards their fans who have stood by every milestone, including becoming the first Korean pop act to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart when “Dynamite” — its first-ever English language track — debuted at No. 1 last summer. They kept the top spot for two consecutive weeks before reclaiming the spot after dropping to second for a week. The group did it again with “Life Goes On,” and marking the first duo or group in history to have two No. 1 Hot 100 debut songs, and breaks the tie with Megan Thee Stallion for most weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales in 2020.
BTS was also named TIME’s 2020 Entertainer of the Year and earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, marking them the first Korean Pop act to get such a nod. The track also came in at No. 2 on The New York Times prestigious Best Songs of 2020 list.
“Dynamite” was the lead single Be (Deluxe Edition) that also topped the Billboard 200 chart, earning the superstars its fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
