RM wanted ‘Intro: Persona’ and ‘Stay’ on BTS’ upcoming album

On May 20, Big Hit Music shared a new “Proof of Inspiration” teaser on social media. Each “Proof of Inspiration” teaser features a BTS member explaining their thought process behind curating the Proof tracklist.

The “Proof of Inspiration” teaser from May 20 features RM of BTS. In the video, RM shares that he chose his solo song “Intro: Persona” and the sub-unit track “Stay” for Proof. “Stay” is performed by Jin, RM, and Jungkook.

In the “Proof of Inspiration” teaser, RM narrates:

“I thought that it would be great if ‘Intro: Persona’ and ‘Stay’ would go in our anthology album, Proof. ‘Intro: Persona’ starts with ‘Who am I!’ so I’ve been thinking about that a lot while we ran full speed ahead since our debut, and even now. I have many different personas: there’s Kim Namjoon as a human being, there’s Kim Namjoon who is a family member and friend, and then there’s RM who makes music. I have all these different ‘me’s, so sometimes it comes as a heavy burden, and at times I wonder who the real ‘me’ is. But in the end, I found that all of these personas that I’ve been shifting between are all me. And I think the members and our ARMY who ‘Stay’ed by my side no matter which of the ‘me’s I was are my Proof.”
