The South Korean boy band have confirmed the tune was written with Ed, after teasing they’d been working together last year.
Ed told Heat in 2018: “I actually wrote a song that I hear they might be messing with. I heard this the other day. I really like BTS though, I think they’re great.”
And in December Suga proved they'd put the plans in motion as he tweeted Ed with a picture of a song they were creating, captioning it: "This is for you."
Following the album's release Ed showed he was listening to the new creation in an Instagram post, writing alongside it: "This is the first K pop song I’ve had the honour of helping write. Check out the rest of the project too. Well done @bts.bighitofficial."
'Make It Right' is described as a “delicate” collaboration, while the overall theme of 'Map Of The Soul: Persona' is said to be a “nod to the band’s past while showcasing their maturity and newfound understanding of love and the ever-widening world around them.”
The description adds: “The tracks have a clear message; Finding joy in love and reaching out to the world.”
