BTS member V, also known as Kim Taehyung, has finally made his solo debut with his album ‘Layover’ on September 8, 2023. The album consists of six songs, each showing a unique side to the BTS member, known for his deep and unique vocals. The album also features a special cameo by his pet dog Yeontan in the music video for the focus track ‘Slow Dancing’.

About the Album

‘Layover’ is the result of V’s three-year journey of exploring different genres and styles of music, as well as his own identity as an artist. The album title reflects V’s philosophy of life, which is to enjoy the journey rather than rushing to the destination. He said, “Instead of taking a direct route, you could stop somewhere and stay for a while, or take a transfer, or do a layover. I just felt that my life, wherever it’s headed, would not follow a direct path.”

The album showcases V’s versatility and creativity as a singer-songwriter, as he experiments with various sounds and moods. The album is designed to be listened to in order from 1 through 5, and each song has its own music video.

The songs are:

  • Rainy Days: A jazz-inspired song that expresses V’s nostalgia and longing for someone on a rainy day.
  • Blue: A ballad that conveys V’s sadness and loneliness after losing someone he loved.
  • Love Me Again: A pop-rock song that depicts V’s hope and desire to rekindle a broken relationship.
  • Slow Dancing: A 1970s romantic soul style song that exudes a laid-back and free-spirited feeling. This is the focus track of the album and also has a piano version as a bonus track.
  • For Us: A folk-pop song that celebrates V’s gratitude and love for his fans and friends.

BTS V “Layover” Album Lyrics in English

[Verse 1]

It’s about time we get it straight

Gimme a minute if it ain’t too late

It sounds about right

This can’t be forced, babe

It shouldn’t feel like this

Hurts too much already

Stay with me ’til the end of the day


Maybe we

Could be

Slow dancing

Until the morning

We could be romancing

The night away

[Verse 2]

Turnin’ me up and back off like this

What do you want? Do you not like it?

Stop teasin’ me, girl

Now, you made me leave my heart out here

Step on me and I’ll lift you up

Find someone new again (Got it on, did you?)

We were so much alike

Now we’re just distant neighbors


Maybe we

Could be

Slow dancing

Until the morning

We could be romancing

The night away
