BTS Releases First Look at Halsey Collaboration 'Boy With Luv'
BTS is teaming up with Halsey!
On Sunday, BTS' parent company dropped the first look at "Boy With Luv," the sure-to-be incredible collab between the boy band and "Without Me" singer.
In the 45 second teaser, an orange-and-pink haired Halsey is chilling in a movie theater ticket window while sucking a lollipop. She quickly closes up shop and dashes across the street in a light pink shorts, crop top and sheer cardigan ensemble when she spots the BTS boys who are all sporting pink suits.
As Halsey leaves the boys behind and the frame zooms out, fans will see that the theater sign says "Persona," a likely reference to the band's upcoming album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which will drop on April 12 along with the Halsey collab.
The collab likely isn't a surprise to fans, as BTS and Halsey have been friends since meeting in 2017. Last August, Halsey took to Instagram to share a group shot of herself with the band in Seoul, South Korea, writing that she was "HELLA proud" of them.
Halsey has certainly accomplished a lot in the last few years. On Saturday, the "Bad at Love" singer was honored at Ending Youth Homelessness, a benefit for L.A.-based nonprofit and homeless youth center My Friend’s Place. During her speech, Halsey opened up about her life when she was homeless as a teen, and revealed she once considered prostitution.
"When I was living in New York, I was a teenager. My friends were picking out decorations for their dorms and I was debating on whether or not I should let a stranger inside of me so I could pay for my next meal," she said.
"It wasn’t because I did something bad. It wasn’t because something was wrong with me and it wasn’t because my parents didn’t love me, because they did very much," she continued. "But a series of unfortunate circumstances lead me to be in that position and it can happen to absolutely anyone."
As for BTS, their upcoming release comes less than a year after the group -- which is made up of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook -- dropped Love Yourself ‘Answer’, the final in their chart-topping storied Love Yourself series.
The guys updated ET on their new music during an exclusive interview at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards in February.
"We stayed up all night to work for our next album," RM shared. "Right before the flight, we stayed up all night."
