Explicit version of Seven meaning

With the release of explicit version of Seven feat. American rapper Latto, Jungkook made total departure from his usual style. For who don’t know, a minimal demography indeed, Seven is a love song that celebrates the intensity of physical intimacy. The lyrics stresses upon the idea that each day of the week offers an unique opportunity to experience love with someone special.

You lovе when I jump right in
All of me I’m offering
Show you what devotion is
Deeper than the ocean is
Wind it back I’ll take it slow
Leave you with that afterglow
Show you what devotion is
Deeper than the ocean is – verse: Jungkook

The two versions were released, One was BTS Jungkook’s basic version where he accepted to love his girl everyday of the week and second was the explicit version with the American rapper Latto where the semantics shift closer to American hip-hop norms, with the term loving replaced by a more explicit word ‘fu*king’.

The whole song is sexy, but the lyrics of Latto’s rap make it a little more overtly sexual. That’s typical with a guest rap. But were you good with her taking it just a little more direct or extreme than you did? – Variety
