“Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” by BTS
Earlier in the year, there were rumors in some gossip circles that BTS was washed up and/or on the verge of disbanding. Well based on the lyrics of “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)”, neither appear to be the case. We have yet to see if BTS will be able to replicate the massive success they’ve experienced in recent years. But as relayed, their optimism is as high as ever.
And yes, the Bangtan Boys understand, harping back to their “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” era of the mid-2010s, that ‘their yesterdays’ were blessed. But the way they see it is as the “best is what comes next”. In other words, the vocalist(s) understands that a period of notable success doesn’t mean that he’s reached his pinnacle in life. Instead, as put forth in the third verse, there’s “still… a lot to learn” and “to fulfill”.
Also, even though this piece does have a slight braggadocious slant, BTS keeps it humble. For instance, they imply that “nothing much has changed” since when they first started, due to the fact that their professional pursuits are grounded in a genuine love of music. Indeed, as universally- and historically-successful J-Hope and the rest of the homeys may be, they are verifying that their careers are not about making it big or pleasing others per se.
So putting all of that together, the thesis sentiment revolves around BTS being just as driven now, as global superstars, as they were before achieving this level of celebrity.
Release Date of “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)”
BTS has been around since 2013 and is one of the most-successful acts in the history of the global music industry, so it was only a matter of time before they got around to dropping an anthology album. Said project, which Big Hit Music made public on 10 June 2022, is titled “Proof”. And “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” is not only the project’s lead single but also one of three new tracks that was added to the anthology.
BTS announced the forthcoming of this song about a month before its release.
The subtitle of this song points to a collection of connected BTS works known as “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” series or the “Youth Trilogy”. And they took a creative approach in generating excitement for the music video to “Yet to Come” as a couple of days before its issuance, each of the seven members of the band were given individual video teasers.
As a testament to just how popular BTS has become, the week prior to this dropping they were recently granted the opportunity to visit the White House and interact personally with Joe Biden, a President who, unlike Obama or even Trump to some extent, isn’t known for entertaining musicians.
BTS members RM, Suga and J-Hope co-wrote this song with Dan Gleyzer, Max and Pdogg, with the latter, a musician from South Korea, also producing the track.
