The MV immediately trended worldwide and garnered 2 Million views, only 1 hour after its release.
Set Me Free Pt. 2 is the pre-release track of Jimin’s upcoming debut solo album “FACE,” which is releasing next week, March 24.
The singer previously released the tracklist for ‘FACE,’ revealing that the record will feature bandmate RM as a contributor. RM is credited as a lyricist on two of the songs from the album “Face Off” and “Like Crazy” which are produced by long-time BTS collaborators Pdogg, EVAN and GHSTLOOP.
According to the statement released about the record, “through FACE, Jimin will present his own musicality with distinct timbre and impeccable dance performance.” They added that the album will find the singer exploring his “story of fronting his true self and making a new leap forward as an artist.”
Ahead of the MV release, Jimin also released tracks “Christmas Love” and “Promise” to music platforms.
The K-pop superstar is the 4th member of BTS to release a solo album, after Jin, RM, and J-hope.
