Love Yourself: Tear tracklist is here and the theories continue


Big Hit released the tracklist for BTS’ upcoming album Love Yourself: Tear.

There’s a lot of speculation about the meaning of some of the songs. First with song 3 titled ‘Sincerity that couldn’t be delivered’ which has been tied to an instagram (there’s also a twitter account with the same name) with a picture with the same phrase. The smeraldo flower has been tied to be BTS before Love Yourself: Her. It was also used in their PUMA promotions.

In the trailer ‘Singularity’ V is also seen with the flower.Many are still wondering and figuring out how this flower is connected and what it actually means within the BU (BTS Universe).

The next song that has risen more questions is song 4 titled ‘134340’ as ARMYs are thinking is related to Pluto after it was demoted from being a planet to just being the number ‘134340’. It has been connected to that due to the way Big Hit released the teaser picture for each version. Instead of releasing it in order ‘YOUR’, the teaser pictures were released as ‘ORYU’ which is related to Neptune.

Not only that but it has also being speculated that it could be related to their song ‘Whalien 52’ that talks about being lonely and not being heard when needing help from the people around you.

And that’s not the end of these complex theories. Another song that has ARMYs scrambling for clues is song 7 ‘Magic Shop’ It was revealed to be co-written and mixed by DJ Swivel (best known for working with Beyonce as her personal recording engineer) which had been hinted in their performance of Outro: Her.

The song has also been connected to the book ‘The Magic Shop’. This book is about a boy who grew up poor with a troubled family and one day wonder into a magic shop and is later became as neurosurgeon. It’s really curious how this will be incorporated into the theme of the song.

Anpanman is another song which has being speculated to have multiple meanings. ARMYs aren’t sure if it’s a reference to the Japanese anime character or the name of an asteroid which was found in 1997. Fans aren’t sure if it will be about the government, something like ‘Whalien 52’ and the speculations about ‘134340’ or something completely different.

Is really fun to see ARMYs coming up with all these different theories and connections. We can’t wait to finally be able to get some answers once BTS unveils the whole ‘Love Yourself: Tear’ album on May the 18th. So what do you guys think? Are there any theories you agree with?
