“One history in one individual / One star in a single person,” raps RM at one point. “Seven billion different worlds / Shining with seven billion lights.” It’s a stunning, glittering piece of emotional pop that subtly continues the band’s ‘Love Yourself’ message.

Bringing together parts of tropical house and effervescent electro-pop, ‘Save ME’ is deceptively shiny and bouncy – an aural carnival that masks the pleas for assist in the lyrics. “I’m trapped in myself and I’m dead,” Jimin sings in its opening strains. “Don’t wanna be lonely / Just wanna be yours.” It’s unclear if he’s referring to a lover or the ARMY, though we get a potential trace in a while.
