Stitch Reviews: BE
Album Title: BE
Release Date: November 20, 2020
Record Label(s): Big Hit & Columbia
First announced as a “self-produced” album in May 2020 with each of BTS’s seven members taking point on a particular aspect of the project, BE explicitly references COVID-19 and the anxieties the pandemic has inspired, most notably in the first half of the album. However, it then experiences a major tone shift after the skit in the fourth track that seeks to boost listeners’ moods.
