BTS drops teaser for ‘Boy with Luv’

Apr 09,2019


On Monday, K-pop superstars BTS released a teaser video for “Boy with Luv,” the main track of the band’s upcoming album “Map of the Soul: Persona,” featuring American singer and songwriter Halsey.

The 46-second video begins with an image of Halsey in a ticket box. She hastily closes the box office and leaves the movie theater before briefly encountering BTS in front of the theater. The scene is replaced by another image, in which the seven BTS members face backwards on a dark stage lighted with a colorful screen with a neon sign with the word “Love.”

The 24-year-old American singer is the latest high-profile pop star BTS has chosen to work with after the boy band collaborated with American D.J. Steve Aoki for a remix version of “MIC Drop” and Nicki Minaj for a remix version of “Idol,” the main track of “Love Yourself: Answer.”

Having debuted in 2015, Halsey topped the Billboard 200 album chart with her second full-length album, “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom,” in 2017.

She previously shared a photo of her meeting with BTS in Seoul last August while she was in the country for a performance.

The teaser came ahead of BTS’s release of “Map of the Soul: Persona” on Friday, which the band will world premiere live on the American variety show “Saturday Night Live.”
