SEOUL: The new song by RM, the leader of the famous South Korean band BTS, “Come Back to Me,” has ranked atop the iTunes Top Songs charts in 82 nations around the world, said his agency on Sunday.
The track from his upcoming solo album was released on Friday, two weeks ahead of the release of the new album, “Right Place, Wrong Person.”
According to BigHit Music, the song is at the top of iTunes charts in countries such as Germany, Brazil, France, and Japan.
Yonhap news agency reported that after the release of the new song, RM will release the 11-track album on May 24.
This will be the first release from the BTS leader since “Indigo,” his first solo album, rolled out in December 2022.
The group’s agency termed “Come Back to Me” as a song in the indie pop genre with lyrics that read, “Everything comes back, though not necessarily everything.”
According to the agency, the song talks about the conflicting emotions of RM yearning for new challenges while simultaneously seeking to cling to familiarity.

RM himself wrote the track while Oh Hyuk of the band Hyukoh composed and arranged the song. Kuo of Sunset Rollercoaster played guitar and bass.
Singer-songwriter JNKYRD and San Yawn from Balming Tiger also contributed to the lyrics of the song.
Though RM is currently serving in the South Korean Army, he managed to make music videos for nearly half of the album’s tracks.
