BTS is in a giving mood. After releasing their album BE (Deluxe Edition) ahead of the holidays on Nov. 20, the K-pop supergroup are dropping another release. BE (Essential Edition) will be arriving Feb. 19, the global superstars announced Sunday (Jan. 24).
According to the press release, the latest offering “encapsulates BTS’ deepest appreciation towards their fans who have stood by every milestone.” The album will feature eight tracks that were on the deluxe edition: “Life Goes On,” “Fly to My Room,” “Blue & Grey,” “Skit,” “Telepathy,” “Dis-Ease,” “Stay,” and their massive hit “Dynamite.” Per the announcement, BE (Essential Edition) will also feature some things that are different from the Deluxe version.

BTS received a Grammy nomination in November for best pop duo/group performance for “Dynamite,” their first English language single. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August, making BTS, the first South Korean group to top the chart. “Dynamite” is also the first song to top both the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. and Billboard Global 200 charts simultaneously.
BE earned the group their fifth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in late November. Earlier in the year, their release Map of the Soul: 7 debuted atop the March 7 chart.
