After hitting No. 4 on the Hot 100 chart earlier this week with “ON,” BTS surprised fans today (March 4) with the release of a new music video for “Black Swan,” the first single released off of last month’s Billboard 200 chart-topper Map of the Soul: 7.

A performance-based cinematic rendition of “Black Swan,” the video’s release follows two prior videos associated with the song. One featured a Slovenian dance crew MN Dance Company performing dramatic choreography set to the song, while a second showed a dance practice featuring the BTS members.

The latest version of “Black Swan” is the official music video, and features the septet transforming from white into black swans, with the theatrical setting drawing an allusion to the artistic ruminating featured on throughout the song, during which BTS reflects on what music means to them.

“Black Swan” was originally unveiled in January, and is one of 20 tracks found on BTS’s new album, Map of the Soul: 7, which arrived on Feb. 21 and promptly topped charts and broke records across the world.
