BTS’ Jungkook has once again made a splash in the music world with the release of his latest solo single, “3D,” featuring American rapper Jack Harlow. This highly anticipated release was officially announced during Jungkook’s electrifying performance at the Global Citizen Festival 2023. Prior to the song’s release, BTS teased fans with the unveiling of ‘3D’ Hero Film 1 and ‘3D’ Hero Film 2 on their social media platforms.
Dimensions of “3D”
In “3D,” JKtakes listeners on a captivating journey through the intricate theme of unrequited love, seen from three distinct dimensions. The song begins with Jungkook expressing his inability to reach the object of his affection, as they exist in two dimensions, but his desire is to experience everything in the richness of three dimensions. The accompanying music video, directed by Drew Kirsch (known for collaborations with artists like Taylor Swift and the golden maknae himself in “Left and Right” with Charlie Puth), adds visual depth with dynamic camera movements, creating a sensation of viewing from multiple dimensions. Jack Harlow joins in with his rap verse, and the video showcases the two artists engaged in a game of chess.
