This year, BTS notched their first ever Number One hit single on the Billboard charts in the United States with "Dynamite", which is also among the eight tracks on the new album.
Group leader and rapper RM said the group's next goal is to be nominated for a Grammy award. Nominations will be announced on Nov. 24.
"We are nervous, but looking forward to the nomination," RM told a news conference.
Jin, one of the lead singers, said the album 'BE' reflected a year that has been both tragic and fortunate for the band, describing the success of 'Dynamite" in the United States as "beyond our expectations".
SUGA, another rapper in the band, was unable to attend the press conference as he recently had shoulder surgery.
Management company Big Hit Entertainment said it was uncertain whether the BTS performance of “Life Goes On" for the American Music Awards would be live or pre-recorded.
