The album, which features artists Jay Park, and fellow KARD bandmate Somin, has left eager fans waiting at the edge of their seats and receive what BM has in store for them.

Despite the excitement, the highly anticipated release experienced some obstacles along the way. On May 2, Korean news outlets reported that KBS had deemed all five songs on BM’s solo album as “unfit for broadcast.”

According to sources, “Nectar” was considered unsuitable due to its extremely sexual lyrics, while “Loyalty’ was unfit since it reportedly mentioned certain brands, which violates Article 46 of the Broadcasting Review Regulations that bans advertising.

Meanwhile, the remaining three songs titled “Motion,” “Embers,” and “Badgirl Badboy,” were all deemed unsuitable for broadcast mainly due to language involving foul language, profanity, certain slang, and vulgar expressions.

Outlets also stated that if an artist is assessed as ineligible for broadcasting in KBS, a re-examination may be considered if the problematic parts were to be either modified or omitted.

If the problematic parts were to be revised and the songs approved, then the release could be broadcast on KBS programs, including mediums such as television and radio. DPS Media also released a brief statement, sharing that the title track “Nectar” will be the only song in the album to be revised.

We plan to request to reconsider the title track ‘Nectar’ in this case,” DSP Media shared.
