Jan 21,2020
Boy band BTS’s new track “Black Swan” debuted on Britain’s Official Big Top 40 on Sunday, just two days after its release.

“BTS’ new single ‘Black Swan’ has entered The Official Big Top at number 34, becoming the group’s fourth U.K. hit,” Official Chart said.

“Black Swan” was released as a part of the band’s upcoming “Map of the Soul: 7” album, scheduled to drop on Feb. 21 as its fourth full-length album.

The video for “Black Swan” features Slovenian dance group MN Dance Company, which has applied its dance interpretation to the idea of “facing one’s inner shadows,” according to Big Hit Entertainment.

“Map of the Soul: 7” has sold 3.42 million copies of its album in pre-sales, the highest ever achieved by the group.
