The stage of BTS V’s “Singularity” was selected as the best “legendary solo performance” by K-POP artists in China.
On March 20, China’s “Sina News” announced through Weibo, the most popular social networking site in China, that V’s solo song, “Singularity,” performed during BTS’s world tour “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” topped the “Legendary Solo Performances by K-POP artists.”
V became No.1 with a total of 727,754 votes. Considering the fact that BTS were never active in China, this is a remarkable achievement to guess V’s significant influence in China.
“Singularity” is an R&B song based on neo-soul sounds, which is quite different from existing BTS songs, combined with the attractive voice of V. Since the song was released as the intro song of LOVE YOURSELF: Tear back in May 2018, it has consistently received enthusiastic responses from music critics and leading media around the world.
Created by world-renowned choreographer Keone Madrid, “Singularity” is a work in which his talent for choreography using props blossomed after meeting V’s expressive ability. Previously, MTV described V’s stage that “even the most subtle movements — a caress here, a glance there — were met with awe and fervent screams.”
“Singularity,” which sublimated the challenge of the slow-tempo neo-soul genre into a musical-like artistic stage through restrained choreography, is likely to be remembered as a “legendary solo stage” in fans’ memories.
