BTS and Charli XCX have teamed up for “Dream Glow,” a promotional song from the soundtrack of the K-pop group’s upcoming mobile game, BTS World.

Featuring vocals from Jimin, Jungkook, Jin and Charli herself, the track is a lush EDM-pop offering that was produced by StarGate. The song is a rework of Charli’s “Glow,” a 2016 demo that was originally intended for her forthcoming third studio album.

Having worked with the likes of Halsey and Nicki Minaj, BTS are no strangers to collaborating with Western pop artists. Maybe we should have seen this collab coming when Charli jokingly tweeted in 2017 declaring herself the newest member of BTS.

“Dream Glow” follows the release of another Charli XCX collaboration, “Blame It on Your Love,” featuring Lizzo.
