'Come Back to Me' leads RM's new album, showcasing a raw and personal side during their military break.

Pop Culture & Art May 24, 2024

BTS leader RM has launched his second solo album, 'Right Place, Wrong Person,' an evocative collection that arrived on May 24. 

The album, which includes 11 tracks, marks a significant artistic evolution for RM, known offstage as Kim Namjoon, during a period when BTS members are fulfilling their military duties in South Korea.

The lead single, "Come Back to Me," sets the tone for an album filled with alternative-based songs such as "Nuts," "Groin," "Heaven," "LOST!" and others. 

BigHit Music describes the album as a "raw and honest presentation of RM’s distinctive sensibility, aesthetics, and beliefs." 

This release follows his acclaimed 2022 debut, 'Indigo,' which climbed to No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

In anticipation of the album, RM released a series of concept photos that portray him as an "ordinary individual in relatable, everyday settings, enjoying moments of freedom." 

This artistic choice signifies a departure from his high-profile stage persona and directly mirrors the themes of 'Right Place, Wrong Person,' which explores feelings of alienation and not fitting in.

RM, along with his BTS bandmates Jin, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook, is currently serving in the South Korean military, a commitment that requires all able-bodied men to enlist by age 28. 

Despite their ongoing service, several members, including RM, have continued to pursue solo projects. 

BTS is expected to regroup for band activities in 2025, following the conclusion of their military obligations.
