In the first day since its release, BTS’s comeback trailer featuring V was viewed an amazing number of times!

On May 7 at midnight KST, BTS shared the comeback trailer titled “Singularity” for their upcoming return with the full album “Love Yourself: Tear.”

The group often begins the teasers for new releases with a comeback trailer that showcases one of the members, and it was V’s turn this time with his haunting and mesmerizing solo song “Singularity.” British composer Charlie J. Perry took part in creating the track, with lyrics by BTS’s leader RM. “Singularity” reached 10 million views only 15 hours after its release.

24 hours later at midnight KST on May 8, the comeback trailer had reached over 12.4 million views.

This is an incredible number of views on a trailer in the first day, but it would be impressive even if “Singularity” had been a comeback music video. To put it in perspective, the K-pop group MV that holds the record for most views in 24 hours is currently BTS’s “DNA” from last September, with 21 million views in the first day.

Following “DNA” is BTS’s “MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix)” MV with 14 million views in the first 24 hours. The next highest is BLACKPINK’s “As If It’s Your Last” MV with 13.3 million views, followed by TWICE’s “What Is Love?” MV with 12.6 million views and TWICE’s “Heart Shaker” with 11 million views.

BTS’s third full album “Love Yourself: Tear” is due out on May 18, and the album has already set a new record for stock pre-orders. BTS will be performing their new song for the first time at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20, where they’re also nominated for the Top Social Artist award after winning last year.
