Map of the Soul: Persona has to be the most anticipated record since, well, the last BTS release. The stadium filling K-pop supergroup’s new album, which is scheduled to come out on April 12, has already sent their fandom totally hysterical as they wait for it to be released. According to the online store Ktown4u, Map of the Soul: Persona has already sold almost 100,000 copies on pre-order.

And now the wait has become a bit more bearable thanks to the release of Persona, a track that, as is customary from previous BTS releases, works like a trailer for the imminent comeback of the group. Persona features RM, dressed in Louis Vuitton, rapping about the trials and tribulations of being yourself in a classroom while a giant version of himself, very symbolically, watches down from above, wearing a pink robe.
