In a recent interview by BTS’s V, fans were able to understand a bit more about his song “Blue & Grey”, which was included in the group’s latest album, BE.


The track was written during some of V’s hardest moments and was a song he hoped would console others to let them know that they are not alone.

“Please love ‘Blue & Grey’. It’s a song that I wrote!”

Composer and artist NIve, who is a good friend of V, participated in the making of this track. In a previous video, NIve reveals how he received the opportunity to work with V for their album.
