BTS' ARMY Can't Get Enough of 'Map of the Soul: Persona' EP
Their first release since last year’s Billboard 200 chart-topper Love Yourself: Answer came out in August and became the group’s second No. 1 album of 2018, Map of the Soul: Persona has been highly-anticipated by BTS’ fan ARMY across the globe. With seven new songs, including the Ed Sheeran-penned “Make It Right,” the album came out to much fanfare and multiple hashtags and terms trended worldwide on Twitter as old fans and new listeners alike took part in celebrating the album and single’s releases.
Take a look at some of the reactions below, including Halsey’s suggestion for fans to take a listen to the album for a special different version of the single:

jamais vu: please give me a remedy— A #BOYWITHLUV TODAY... (@track11sea) April 12, 2019
dionysus, immediately after: SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS EVERYBODY
jamais vu is everbody's song. the way it relates to the reality of this world, the reality of imperfection & how it affects everyone. asking for remedy & help, & making yourself believe that its okay & ure okay but its actually the absolute opposite. #MAP_OF_THE_SOUL_PERSONA pic.twitter.com/wOaDWFuc6Q— alex is a bangwool.

yoongi referencing "big house, big cars, and big rings" that he wrote in 'no more dream', talking about how he wanted those things. but in 'HOME', he now has all of those things yet still feels a little empty. there's the realisation that maybe he doesn't really need them at all.— rach ʷᶦᵗʰ ˡᵘᵛ ᵇʳᵒ (@ggukreum) April 12, 2019
