Jung Kook knows exactly how he wants to see you, or so he claims on “3D,” his second solo single with Jack Harlow. The BTS member debuted the song, in whose hook he sings “I want to see it in motion, in 3D,” on Friday with a video that presents it in all known dimensions.
In a message to Jung Kook’s fans on WeVerse, his label Big Hit Music wrote: “as a pop-R&B track with clever expressions of feelings towards an unattainable person from the perspective of the first, second and third dimensions.” It also promised “one more “more mature side” of the pop star and that Harlow would “bring oomph” to the song.
In July, Jung Kook released “Seven,” which featured Latto and introduced him as a solo artist outside of BTS. The album was an instant hit, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
When a South Korean news outlet, Ten Asia, claimed that the song had enough significant similarities to Fin.KL’s song “Time of Mask”, Big Hit dismissed the plagiarism allegations. “‘Seven’ is a song created in collaboration with five foreign composers,” the company said. “It is a creation that has absolutely nothing to do with a song that was included on a Korean album released 24 years ago. We would like to emphasize that the one-sided claim is without merit as it does not meet any of the elements for a copyright infringement claim, such as material similarity, independent conception, etc.”
“Seven” was featured in his set at the Global Citizen Festival this past weekend. He also performed BTS’s “Euphoria” and a medley of the group’s “Permission to Dance,” “Dynamite” and “Butter.” The set also included his first-ever performance of “Still With You,” a solo single he released in 2020. Latto made an unannounced appearance at the festival to sing her verse on the track. He ended the performance with a teaser of “3D.”
