“Filter” is a solo track from BTS’s fourth full-length album, “Map of the Soul: 7”, which was released on February 21st 2020. Jimin is the one who came up with its concept. “I came up with this song ‘Filter’,” he explained, in an interview with Spotify.
“Filters can be the things within a camera application, or social media, but it can also mean people’s perspective or prejudice. I took these various meanings and expressed it into the song of how I want to present myself to the world in many different ways. I think I’ll be able to show a new side of me that’s very different from my previous tracks, “Serendipity” and “Lie”.”
