“Fire” by BTS
On May 2nd, 2016, BTS released the group’s brand new album The Most Beautiful Moment In Life: Young Forever, and “Fire” as the lead single of the album. “Fire” is an intense song. The beginning of the song starts with the strong chant of “Fire” and backed up by an energetic instrumental.
The repetition of the word “Fire” in the chorus of the song is easy enough to grasp. However, the pumped-up track is also full of uplifting lines. BTS leader RM and member Suga, have co-written the lyrics encouraging the “scared” and “miserable” to lift up their fists and go wild and crazy.
In the four years after its release, the music video of “Fire” has been watched more than 650 million times on YouTube, with 6.9 million likes, and over 580 thousand comments.
