'Golden,' out Friday, features collaborations with stars like Jack Harlow, Latto and DJ Snake
Jungkook is feeling golden.
In the music video, which was shot in Budapest, Hungary, Jungkook, 26, breaks into groovy dance numbers with his backup dancers as they turn various locations into a stage.
In the beginning, Jungkook appears to be pursuing a woman before luring her in with his dance moves. By the end of the music video, Jungkook and the mystery woman finally meet eye-to-eye.
In "Standing Next to You," Jungkook showcases his versatility with the infectious track, which is about sticking by someone's side through adversity.
Jungkook — who is known as "Golden Maknae" aka "Golden Youngest" of BTS — is aiming to highlight his trajectory from a band member on BTS to a solo star on his debut album. It also features collaborations with stars like Jack Harlow, Latto and DJ Snake, while producers on the album include Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes.
A press release also states that "through the order of the tracks, Jungkook expresses the flow of emotions that follow the changes in relationships. The first half of the album introduces songs with light-hearted melodies portraying someone falling in love, whereas the latter half lays out songs that feel heavier, dealing with emotions following a breakup."
Before the skies opened up over New York City, forcing an early end to the show, the youngest member BTS performed three songs in front of an audience of devoted fans — many of whom lined up overnight or even camped out for a chance to see the singer in Central Park.
Jungkook performed his single "Seven," his first official solo release; as well as "Euphoria," a fan-favorite Jungkook track off the group's 2018's album Love Yourself: Answer; and BTS's 2020 smash hit "Dynamite."
In an interview with GMA’s Juju Chang that was moved indoors to the show's Times Square studio, Jungkook shared that his fellow BTS members — RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin and V — had heard his new music and gave it a glowing review. "They loved it," he said. The members have already been sharing messages of support for the single on their Instagram accounts.
The group announced last June that they would be pursuing solo projects while continuing some group activities as the members fulfill South Korea's mandatory military service. Jin, j-hope and SUGA are currently enlisted.
