In the poll, published Friday (June 19) on Billboard, music fans voted for the previously unreleased big-beat ballad as their favorite new release from the past week. “Stay Gold” brought in 84% of the vote.
The track was included as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of the K-pop supergroup’s recent album, Map of the Soul: 7.
Even the clock hands/ Will stop moving/ Uh let it glow,” V sings in the pre-chorus before Jungkook, Jimin and Jin blend their voices for the soaring chorus (lyric translation courtesy of Genius). “Stay gold Even in a dream/ Stay gold/ I’ll find you/ Stay gold, gold/ I want to see you/ Stay gold/ You are everything/ Stay gold/ For everyone.”
