A deeper dive into RM’s ‘Indigo’ and the talented artists featured on the album

It is clear that these days and as 2022 comes to an end, BTS (방탄소년단) and RM (아르엠) don’t need much of an introduction due to numerous headlines and interviews upon each milestone and impressive records they have broken. This post digs a little deeper into Kim Namjoon (RM) and his most recently released body of work ‘Indigo,’ including a look into the artists that are featured on this album. 

In November 2017, RM would announce the change of the meaning of his stage name would currently stand for ‘Real Me’ as he felt like the past meaning of his stage name no longer connected to who he is now as a person. Afterward, he would release his first single with Wale titled ‘Changed’ before being featured on Fall Out Boy’s ‘Champion’ remix on December 15th of that same year. 

RM would later go on to release multiple singles and albums after that. He would later release the 7 track ‘Mono’ on October 23rd, 2018, ‘Bicycle’ on June 7th, 2021. Before being featured on the track ‘SEXY NUKIM’ on September 1st, 2022. Afterward, Indigo would be the debut studio album of RM and his first full-length body of work since Mono in 2018.
