Psst: Jimin Included A Secret Hidden Track On His Album

ARMY, the wait is finally over. Jimin’s first solo album, FACE, is finally here, and I don’t know about you, but it’s already album of the year for me. The music video for the movie-inspired title track, “Like Crazy,” has already amassed over 7 million views and counting on YouTube. I guess you could say the people were hungry for new music, and Jimin delivered. But in addition to the five tracks on FACE, plus the English version of “Like Crazy,” there’s even more new music to get excited about. Yep, I’m talking about Jimin’s hidden track on FACE, “Letter.”

Fans were surprised to learn that on the CD version of FACE, “Like Crazy (English Version)” is 10 minutes long, despite the song not being that long on the digital version. That’s because, as fans realized, after a bit of silence a new song begins at around six minutes and 13 seconds in. The song is called “Letter,” and it’s a CD-only song, meaning that you won’t find it on Spotify or other streaming platforms.

Of course, this didn’t stop fans from posting clips of the song and lyric translations on Twitter, with some even uploading full lyric videos to YouTube.

The lyrics to “Letter” are so sweet, detailing Jimin’s wish to comfort a loved one so they can stay by each other’s side through hard times. It could be, much like Jimin’s bandmate Jin’s “The Astronaut,” a love letter to his fans.

Some ARMYs have noticed parallels between the line in “Letter” that says, “If we are together / Just like we were then / When even the desert could become a sea” (as translated by STUDIO_0613 on Twitter) and a lyric from BTS’ song “Sea” that similarly references a desert: “The scary desert became our ocean with our blood, sweat, and tears.” Another line in “Letter,” “The one who was like a warm spring day to me was you,” is a nod to “Spring Day,” one of BTS’ most beloved and popular songs.

Given that Jimin’s pre-release single for FACE, “Set Me Free Pt. 2,” was named after the Agust D (aka BTS member Suga) track “Set Me Free” and also referenced another BTS song, “ON,” it’s not so surprising that Jimin would pay homage to his group in this hidden song.

Of course, though, if we’re going to talk about BTS, we have to mention the most obvious nod to the group on “Letter”: Jungkook’s background vocals! Fans with sharp hearing immediately recognized his voice on the song, compiling his parts into videos to highlight his contribution. Jungkook even spoiled part of “Letter” for ARMYs when he played part of the song on guitar during a livestream ahead of FACE‘s release, and it’s only now that the song is out that fans have realized he was hinting at his collab with Jimin. Sneaky, sneaky!

FACE now joins J-Hope’s Jack in the Box and RM’s Indigo on the list of BTS solo albums released since their 2022 military enlistment announcement, and so far, all of the members have been releasing hit after hit. With Suga’s solo world tour coming up in April, my money’s on him releasing a project next, but who knows? Jungkook’s background vocals on “Letter” could have just been the warmup for JJK1.

If you want to listen to “Letter” as Jimin intended it, you’ll probably have to purchase the CD version of FACE, which you can buy at Target. Or, of course, you can also scour social media to listen to clips of it and bask in the beauty of Jimin and Jungkook’s vocals together if you just can’t wait. I know I’ll be emotional over these lyrics all day now, and playing it on repeat.
