There’s plenty to be excited this April as the K-pop world readies a lineup of exciting comebacks for fans around the world. Amongst the list of idol acts is the highly-anticipated return of global sensation BTS with their upcoming EP, Map of the Soul: Persona.
Having just dropped their comeback trailer two weeks ago, the septet is back with another surprise teaser for ‘Boy With Luv’, which is created in collaboration with American pop singer Halsey. Dubbed by BTS stans as the collaboration of the century, this project has been a long time coming since both parties first met at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, where they showed us exactly what was it like to be #FriendshipGoals.

Although this long-awaited collaboration took two whole years to happen, fans have finally been rewarded for their patience with this partnership becoming a reality. Despite getting just about 46 seconds of visuals and just a hint of a tune, it’s more than enough for ARMYs to blow up social media in anticipation for the full music video release on 12 April, 7pm.
HALSEY AND BTS? PINK CONCPECT? BOY WITH LOVE? PERSONA? JUNGKOOK’S VOICE? A MOVIE THEATRE? AHHHHHH

From Steve Aoki to Nicki Minaj to now Halsey, the boys have shown that Korean pop music isn’t just limited to Asia anymore. Together with the rapidly-growing size of the BTS ARMY, we’re pretty sure that the list of would-be collaborators will also continue to increase, ideally bringing the K-pop idol group closer to realising their Grammy dream.
In case you’ve missed it, here’s the first teaser video for BTS’ new track ‘Boy With Luv’ in collaboration with Halsey.
