‘Love Wins’ was the original name of IU’s highly anticipated pre-release single featuring BTS V, but it has now been changed due to controversies around the term.
‘Love Wins’ is a famous slogan in pride parades for s*xual minorities, thus initially, people were worried about the associations with the partnership. Some thought the title was misleading and could have watered down the original intent.
A fresh teaser poster bearing the title “Love Wins All” was quickly released by IU’s label, EDAM Entertainment, in response to the criticism. The label clarified in a statement:
“We decided to change the title to respect and support everyone who loves in their various ways, and we accept the opinions of those who express concerns that precious messages might be blurred due to the title.”
Resolving the sensitivity issues brought up by the original title choice, the amended title seeks to keep the song’s meaning intact. With this move, the label shows its dedication to diversity and inclusion while also protecting the song’s powerful message of love’s eventual victory.
