In the lead-up to the drop of his debut studio album Golden, BTS’ Jungkook has been pushing out several releases.

The first was Seven (feat. Latto) (2023), a romantic UK garage pop song for which he teamed up with American rapper Latto. Then, Jungkook sang about passionate love and spending every day with one’s lover.

Next in line was 3D (feat. Jack Harlow) (2023). In this slightly more cheeky track, he tastefully talks about feelings toward an unattainable person from various dimensions.

All that’s left is for him to drop his debut studio album proper.
