When Does BTS’s “Proof” Come Out?

BTS' "Proof" is slated to hit streaming services globally on June 10 at midnight EST. The physical album, consisting of three CDs, will ship on the same day. However, it hasn't been disclosed if BTS will release any lead single prior to the album release. Considering that the group scored seven nominations at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, set to take place on May 15, fans are speculating that BTS might surprise drop a single off their new album with a performance during the awards show. We're crossing our fingers, manifesting a brand-new track from the global superstars sooner rather than later.

BTS's "Proof": What Is an Anthology Album?

The textbook definition of "anthology" is a published collection of songs or musical compositions issued in one album. "Proof" is an anthology album because, as Big Hit revealed in its announcement, the album "embodies the history of BTS . . . as they begin a new chapter as an artist that has been active for nine years to look back on their past endeavours."

The anthology album consists of three CDs that will include tracks from "Skool Luv Affair," "Wings," "Map of the Soul," and "Be," as well as three all-new tracks. The anthology will "reflect the thoughts and ideas of the members on the past, present, and future of BTS."

BTS's "Proof" Lead Single

The lead single off of BTS's "Proof" will be an original song called "Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)." The song title seemingly calls back to BTS's "HYYH: The Most Beautiful Moment in Life/Youth" era, a trilogy of albums they released from April 2015 to September 2016. The single artwork is a blue and white gradient with white lines of different sizes that create a wispy, cloud-like version of BTS's shield logo.

Are There Any Collaborations On BTS’s “Proof”?

Snoop Dogg confirmed earlier this year that he joined forces with BTS for a collaborative track, though we don't yet know whose album it'll appear on. Since we do already know that a track with Snoop Dog's contribution is in the works, we can't help but wonder if this anticipated single will land on "Proof"'s official tracklist, but there's also a possibility it'll end up on one of the member's solo releases.
