BTS has achieved a worldwide collaboration with rapper and songwriter Nicki Minaj.
Nicki Minaj is featured on the last track, “IDOL”, of BTS’s repackage album LOVE YOURSELF 結 ‘Answer,’ which is set to be released on the 24th at 6pm.
According to their company, BTS had finished working on their repackage album when they suggested that Nicki Minaj’s rap would suit the song, and Nicki Minaj happily accepted the offer. The song that Nicki Minaj featured in, IDOL, will not be included in the physical album but will be a digital special track. IDOL will showcase Nicki Minaj’s iconic rap style.
With the upcoming release of the finale of the 2 and a half year long LOVE YOURSELF series, LOVE YOURSELF 結 ‘Answer,’ the announcement of the collaboration with Nicki Minaj has increased anticipation for the album. Member RM had stated that this album was “made with only the desire the have fun with fans” and that “the festival is about to begin..everyone enjoy it with us,” and we expect that it will be a festival with their fans, just as RM said.
“Rap queen” Nicki Minaj debuted with her single “Massive Attack” in 2010, and that year became the first female singer to get 7 songs on the Billboard ‘Hot 100’.
BTS will have their comeback on the 24th, and, on the 25th and 26th , will hold their concert at Seoul’s Jamsil stadium, where they will perform their new song on stage for the first time.
