Jimin is sending 2018 off in a big way: the BTS vocalist released his new song “Promise” just after midnight in Seoul on Dec. 31.
A mellow pop ballad, “Promise” is fronted by Jimin’s evocative singing accompanied only by an acoustic guitar and some gentle vocal layering. The tender lyrics expressively feature the artist singing about wanting to "be your light" and end with a promise to be there through pain.
"Everyone, you've waited a long time, right?" wrote Jimin on Twitter shortly after sharing a link to “Promise.” "I finally shared my own song with the public. This is a song for me, as it is a song for you. It's the first time and it is still premature but please enjoy it. Thank you for waiting, ARMY.”
