The previously unreleased song that was included as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of their recent Map of the Soul: 7 album-hit streaming on Friday (June 19) and immediately gained chart-busting popularity as expected of the super septet.

Providing comfort while still having a blast, vocalist, V croons, “Even the clock hands / Will stop moving / Uh let it glow” in the pre-chorus, before the remaining vocal line– Jungkook, Jimin and Jin– join to deliver a seamlessly blended chorus singing “Stay gold Even in a dream / Stay gold / I’ll find you / Stay gold, gold / I want to see you / Stay gold/ You are everything/ Stay gold/ For everyone.” The septet – aka RM, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook– who have jointly created the dynamic offering, remind us to take a moment for ourselves in our relentless busy lives to soak in some much-needed positive energy.

A dance track with precise beats and an ear worm melody encompassed in soft vocals, “Stay Gold” is an offering that is soothing, uplifting, and relatable all at once, keeping listeners engaged from the first note to the last.
