BTS Makes Rolling Stone’s “The 50 Best Albums Of 2020” List
BTS was the only Korean artist to make Rolling Stone’s year-end roundup of “The 50 Best Albums of 2020”!
On December 4 local time, the American magazine published its annual list of its picks for the 50 best albums of the year, and BTS’s “Map of the Soul: 7” came in at No. 16.
Rob Sheffield wrote, “The South Korean pop kings didn’t water down their style (or language) to conquer America—they just won the audience on their own terms.” Describing “Map of the Soul: 7” as BTS’s “most complex and personal album yet,” he praised the group for continuing to pursue “their loftiest creative ambitions.”
Sheffield added, “‘Map of the Soul: 7’ lives up to its title with heartfelt individual confessions like Suga‘s rap-star space fantasy ‘Interlude: Shadow.’ But the high point is ‘Moon,’ Jin‘s wonderstruck love song to the audience, where he pledges his devotion over jangling guitars.”
Congratulations to BTS!
