BTS’s Jimin Explains The Meaning Behind His Solo Song “Filter”
BTS‘s new album, MAP OF THE SOUL: 7, includes 6 new solo songs: Jungkook‘s “My Time”, Suga‘s “Interlude: Shadow”, V‘s “Inner Child”, Jin‘s “Moon”, J-Hope‘s “Outro: Ego”, and Jimin‘s “Filter”.
Each of these tracks tells a meaningful story about the members’ thoughts, perspectives, and life experiences. Although Jimin is not credited with writing his solo (“Filter” was co-written by 10 artists, including Bang Si Hyuk), Jimin is the one who came up with its concept.
“I came up with this song ‘Filter’,” he explained, in an interview with Spotify. “Filters can be the things within a camera application, or social media, but it can also mean people’s perspective or prejudice.”
“I took these various meanings and expressed it into the song of how I want to present myself to the world in many different ways.”
“I think I’ll be able to show a new side of me that’s very different from my previous tracks, “Serendipity” and “Lie”.”
“Please, look forward to it,” he concluded. “Filter.”
