K-pop group BTS (Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook) is gearing up to release their third Japanese-language album on April 4! Face Yourself will include Japanese versions of hits like “MIC Drop, “DNA” and “Spring Day,” as well as three never-before-heard tracks. One of them is called “Don’t Leave Me,” and a snippet of the track surfaced today, March 16! Listen to it below.
Amazingly, the unreleased track is already charting on the Billboard Japan Hot 100 at #25! How can this happen, you may be asking? Well, the Japan Hot 100 doesn’t just count radio airplay and sales — it also takes artist and song tweet mentions into consideration, as it’s explained here.

Obviously, fans are obsessed with the snippet, which is also meant to be the theme song of a Japanese drama called Signal and will appear on the show’s soundtrack. “This is our first time singing a drama theme song, and we are honored to participate in the theme song for a drama that was successful in Korea. We completed a perfect track,” RM said in a statement, via Soompi. “I hope people can focus more on the drama while listening to our theme song,” Jungkook put in, and J-Hope added, “We hope people watching the drama will enjoy this song.”
