According to RM on the BTS blog, he had always wanted to make a song about bicycles. For him, it has been three years since he released 'Mono.' He is also tired of preparing for the next series without any promises. So, this song is a good excuse for 'Festa.' He decided to make a bicycle song and release it.

About The Mono Mixtape

'Mono' is a mixtape that RM released in October 2018. At the time, on the US Billboard's main album chart, 'Billboard 200', the song came in the 26th position on the ranking. This was also the highest record to be achieved by a K-pop solo artist.

About The Single Called Bicycle

The single was inspired by RM riding his Bicycle from February to March. According to him, he rode his bike frantically and went all over the place.

By adding the melody and lyrics to Heeyoung Hyung's guitar playing, he finally completed the song. This is a significant achievement for him because he wrote the lyrics while riding a bicycle.

How RM Wrote The Song

Also, he has been steadily participating in BTS album work with excellent songwriting and composing skills.

In 2015, he released his first mixtape, 'RM,' and showed his solo artist's capabilities. In addition, he recently participated in writing lyrics for the new English song 'Butter,' which topped the US Billboard's main singles chart 'Hot 100'.
