“I found you, now I’m lost in euphoria / Lost but I love it, don’t look for me / I’ll go to a place where there is no pain / Even if I get lost, it’s okay with you, yeah,” he sings in the chorus of the trap-tinged song, in Korean and English.

Many sounds that you can experiment with,” he told NME. “I wanted ‘The First Statement’ to be a statement where I let people know that I’m in it for the long run.”
BM first made his debut as part of KARD in July 2017 with their mini-album ‘Hola Hola’. The group have since released four mini-albums and a handful of singles, including their latest hit single ‘Gunshot’.
