BTS release 'Boy With Luv' music video featuring Halsey
UPDATE: The full music video for “Boy With Luv” — which you can watch above — was released Friday morning. You can also listen to the band’s new album, Map of the Soul: Persona.
EARLIER: As its release date draws nearer, BTS are still dropping tidbits from their new EP Map of the Soul: Persona. Following a new music video that doubled as an album trailer, the K-pop boy band has released a teaser for another music video, this time featuring Halsey.
Most of the 45-second teaser is silent, with Halsey stepping out of a ticket booth (at a theater with a neon sign reading “Persona”) to find the members of BTS sitting outside. But you can hear a very brief snippet of the song, called “Boy With Luv” in English, at the end of the video. Based on that title and that snippet, it seems to be a much more poppy and romantic track than the intense rap solo featured in the album trailer.
The full music video will drop April 12, the same day Map of the Soul: Persona is scheduled for release.
