Rap Monster’s Girlfriend
Right now Rap Monster doesn’t have a girlfriend because he is too busy with his career and doesn’t have time to date. Rap Monster had a girlfriend when he was in high school but they eventually broke up because the girl seemed too friendly with other boys. While he was dating her, this girl was too friendly with other boys and eventually, they broke up.
Rap Monster was recently interviewed by Billboard magazine regarding the new BTS album titled “Love Yourself: Her” which was released on September 18th. The album contains nine tracks and two hidden tracks (CD only); BTS presents many interesting stories in this mini album.
In his interview, the BTS leader, Rap Monster revealed how each song was created, the source of inspiration, the collaboration process with the EDM The Chainsmokers duo for one of the songs entitled “Best of Me.”
But fans paid more attention to Rap Monster’s answer to the song ‘Outro: Her’ which became the last track in this mini album. “‘Outro: Her’ really talked to me. It’s like reading a diary,” said the interviewer.
Rap Monster explained, “I think it’s the fastest work I’ve done for this album. I wrote the lyrics in just 20 minutes. It just came, very honest from the bottom of my heart. I think this is the right outro song for this album because of the wide range of emotions.”
“I said that I met this person I love, this person is the love of my life right now. I said that I was confused and was looking for love and this world was complicated. But I think you made it, I call you ‘her’ because you are my tears. I think you are the beginning and the end for me, You are my question, but you are also my answer.” That statement made fans suspect that Rap Monster was in love and talked about his lover while creating this song and writing those romantic lyrics.
But not a few also said if he only explained the meaning of the song’s lyrics. Meanwhile, ‘Outro: Her’ does have lyrics that are full of the meaning of love. “Love is not just about happiness, joy, and pleasure. If you want to love someone, you must know that there are tears and even hatred in them. I think love really covers all that. That’s what I want to say. This is complicated,” he concluded.
