This song is part of our “THE SUMMER 97 (1998 x 2023)” playlist. Check out the full list.

Ambitious rising stars in pop often collide to combine their star power, yielding #BigEnergy. Newly solo seventh of K-pop’s biggest band BTS, Jung Kook, and one of the hottest new women in Hip-Hop, Latto, join forces on “Seven,” a sizzling, summer sex romp that is anything but subtle. In true boy-bander-gone-solo fashion, BTS’ youngest proves he’s all grown-up, putting all interested parties on notice: “Night after night, I’ll be fucking you right.” Latto, understanding the assignment, matches his vibe: “Come here baby, let me swallow your pride.” As addictive as, apparently, you-know-what… “Seven” is tailor-made to repeat.
