BTS released their song “Blood Sweat & Tears” in 2016. The music video for “Blood Sweat & Tears” just reached 500 million views on YouTube.

‘Blood Sweat & Tears’ is from BTS’s ‘Wings’ era

“Blood Sweat & Tears” is the lead single from BTS’s Wings era. The era is a favorite among fans. The album and single is nothing short of an artistic masterpiece.

The music video for “Blood Sweat & Tears” is the eighth BTS music video to reach 500 million views on YouTube. Two of their songs, “Fire” and “DNA,” have over 600 million views. “Fake Love,” “Boy With Luv,” “Mic Drop,” “Idol,” and “Dope” also have over 500 million views on YouTube.

BTS fans celebrated the song reaching 500 million views on YouTube

The Wings era is one of BTS fans’ favorite eras. Each member had a solo song on the album. The album also dealt with themes like temptation, growth, and conflict. To celebrate the music video reaching 500 million views, BTS ARMY posted their congratulatory messages on Twitter.

“Someone said my baby BS&T just hit 500 million,, that’s the song that made me an army and introduced me to BTS I’m emotional,” one fan tweeted.

“Happy 500M for the era I miss the most congratulations,” another tweeted.

#BST500M we love this song and we love you boys, congrats on yet another milestone. Keep flying boys, the stars are yours…,” wrote a Twitter user.

#BST500M One of the best Era’s BTS has ever created,” a fan tweeted.

ARMY thinks the ‘Wings’ album was ahead of its time

While BTS is known for selling out tours and breaking records, they are also known for their artistry. The members of the group play a large role in making their own music. In each album, they choose to incorporate different musical genres and tackle complex themes with their lyrics.

BTS released Wings and “Blood Sweat & Tears” in 2016. The music was truly ahead of its time. Fans believe if BTS released the album in 2019, they would be sweeping award shows and receiving more radio play.

“I sometimes think about how different it would’ve been if BTS dropped WINGS Album in 2019? Imagine their solos, those short films, that concept, then a WHOLE Blood Sweat & Tears MV… I wanna re-live that era again,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

“If blood sweat and tears was released now, it would have ABSOLUTELY topped every music chart. That song was ahead of it’s time, and even in 2019, it’s still ahead of the styles of music today,” another wrote on Twitter.

Some BTS fans hope BTS’s next comeback sounds like ‘Blood Sweat & Tears’

Because the Wings era was so ahead of its time, BTS fans hope the group will release another album similar to it. ARMY suspects a BTS album announcement could drop any day. Because fans also expect the next album to have a darker concept, they wonder if it will resemble Wings.

“dude imagine if bts really does comeback on october which is like next month with a concept that is similar to blood sweat & tears but like a darker version type… i’m scared,” one fan tweeted.
