It was posted just one hour before the scheduled release. Anticipation was high as the minutes counted down and fans definitely weren’t let down. The song, titled “Always”, has an entrancing instrumental and shows off Rap Monster’s distinctly raspy voice, with heart-wrenching lyrics.
The song is already so popular that fans began tweeting “#Always_love_you_남준” (Namjoon) to show their appreciation and the hashtag trended number 1 worldwide!
