BTS have returned with their new single “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey and basically broke the internet.
The video was released barely 4 hours ago and already has more than 9.7 million views on YouTube, and BTS-related hashtags are the only things trending worldwide on Twitter.
“Boy With Luv,” also known as “A Poem for the Small Things,” in Korean, appears on the group’s 7-track EP Map of the Soul: Persona, which also features the Ed Sheeran collab “Make It Right.” It is BTS’ first album of 2019, and follows last year’s Billboard200 chart-topping duo of Love Yourself: Tear and Love Yourself: Answer. The group will perform “Boy With Luv” on Saturday Night Live tomorrow (April 13), and later bring their performances Stateside during the May dates of their upcoming Love Yourself: Speak Yourself stadium tour.
The 2014 song was about young love and this new song is about how true strength and love come from finding joy in the smallest things in life.
