In a statement released by the seven-member group, they explained the origin and meaning of the new track. "DNA' is about the expression of a younger generation's sweet and passionate heart of love. The song has a fresh sound which is still BTS-like but encompasses an addictive whistle, acoustic guitars and some electro-pop sounds," read the statement.
The K-Pop idols also dished about their collaboration with American production duo, The Chainsmokers. According to them, the opportunity motivated them to dream high and expand their reach in the music industry.
"I never imagined working together with The Chainsmokers before our debut. Before our debut, my goal was to perform at the Olympic Stadium, but we're receiving offers that would have been impossible to even imagine. We also want to see how far we can go, and if we make it into the Hot 100, we'd like to go as far as possible to leave many milestones in (music) history," team leader Rap Monster said.
