The explosive new music video features the rapper performing the song’s intense choreography with a team of backup dancers. It also includes scenes of BM chained to what seems to be an interrogation table. “Since 2013 I’ve envisioned myself as king / 13IVI (yadayadayaya) / I’ve been unfolding everything according to the vision I drew,” he raps.
‘The First Statement’ also features the sensual deep house-inspired song ‘Body Movin’ and the Korean-language version of his debut single, ‘Broken Me’. The Korean-American artist penned the lyrics of all three tracks, and also participated in the songwriting and composition for each song.
BM made his solo debut with the English-language track ‘Broken Me’ earlier this month on June 9. In a previous interview with Popwrapped, he shared that the song showed a “much more refurbished, different and intimate side of me as an artist.”
The singer also said that the track is about “fighting a war” with oneself. “‘Broken Me’ is a story of being able to overcome those endeavours and fighting through all those wars within [the journey of life],” BM explained
BM made his debut as part of KARD in July 2017 with their EP ‘Hola Hola’. The group have since released four EPs and a handful of singles, including their latest hit single ‘Gunshot’.
Recently, BM also featured in the video for Korean-American singer AleXa’s new single, ‘Xtra’.
