When Big Hit Entertainment announced the album’s title is BE (Deluxe Edition), the label sent out a press release saying that all the members were involved in the album’s “overall production: concept, composition, design, etc.”
According to the press release, BE (Deluxe Edition) will contain the members’ “thoughts, emotions and deepest ruminations” resulting in the “most ‘BTS-ish’ music yet.”

“It’s about ‘Life goes on,'” RM said in the video. “We can show that life goes on by showing how we live our everyday lives… We can include studio shots and of us getting on and off the car and going back home after work… Because the song itself says life goes on, no matter what.”
