B.I Releases His Half Album ‘COSMOS’

Multihyphenate B.I has released his first solo half album, COSMOS along with the music video for the title track of the same name which has skyrocketed to over 1 million views in just a few hours. Listen to COSMOS here.

B.I participated in all the writing and composing for the album. He shares, “COSMOS, the title of this half album, is the name of a flower but it also means “universe.” I have always liked the word “unchanged” more than the word “forever,” because I once believed that things didn’t last forever.” He elaborates; “Your love, which is impossible to put into words, was what kept me alive even during the hard times. So now I want to love you forever. What is your cosmos? You are my cosmos.”

Consisting of 7 tracks, the half album explores the kind of love that makes you dream about eternity and allows you to give everything without anything in return. What was the love that gave birth to new cosmos in your life? Who was it that made your heart race to the point of bursting? This is the story about the times when unadulterated love filled the universe, and of different forms of love-fueled passions. B.I drew inspiration for the lyrics for “Alive” from German Philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, who once said “A ship sailing far away cannot go quietly without encountering wind waves. Wind waves are always the friends of the advancing one’s. There is rather life’s joy in hardship. What a monotonous voyage without a wind wave! The more hardships I suffer, the more my heart beats.” Ranging from HipHop/Rap to R&B; the title track “COSMOS,” a song about eternal love, brings a harder rock sound.
