BTS' RM Debuts at No. 23 on Spotify Global Chart with Solo Single

RM, the leader of K-pop sensation BTS, has made a strong solo debut with his new single "Come Back to Me." Released on May 10, 2024, the song entered Spotify's Top 50 Global chart at No. 23, showcasing RM's international appeal and artistic prowess.

"Come Back to Me" is the lead single from RM's upcoming second solo album, "Right Place, Wrong Person," set for release on May 24, 2024. The indie-pop track explores RM's conflicting emotions of yearning for new challenges while wanting to cling to familiarity. RM wrote the song's lyrics, which read, "Everything comes back, though not necessarily everything."

The single's global success extends beyond Spotify, with "Come Back to Me" topping iTunes Top Songs charts in 82 countries worldwide, including Germany, Brazil, France, and Japan, according to BigHit Music.

"Come Back to Me" showcases RM's collaborative spirit, with Oh Hyuk of Hyukoh composing and arranging the track, Kuo of Sunset Rollercoaster playing guitar and bass, and contributions from singer-songwriter JNKYRD and San Yawn of Balming Tiger.

The single's accompanying music video, written and directed by Emmy-winning South Korean-American director Lee Sung-jin, known for his work on the TV series "Beef" (2023), has garnered over 7.4 million views since its release. Despite an injury during filming that required hospitalization and stitches, RM's dedication to his craft shone through as he returned to complete the shoot.

RM's solo endeavors come amidst BTS' temporary hiatus as the group members fulfill their mandatory military service in South Korea. RM, whose real name is Kim Nam-joon, is currently serving in the South Korean army alongside his fellow BTS members, with the group set to reunite in 2025.

"Right Place, Wrong Person" marks RM's first solo release since his debut solo album "Indigo" in December 2022. With RM's global popularity and artistic vision, anticipation is high for the 11-track album that promises to showcase his growth as a solo artist and storyteller.
