BTS tease brand-new track, “Idol”

It looks like Nicki Minaj might join in on the fun.

BTS, the reigning kings of K-pop, have just released a teaser video for their upcoming single, “Idol”—and from the looks of it, the boys already have another smash on their hands.

There’s not much to take away from the preview, but the 40-second clip spills with color and shows the seven-membered group dressed in traditional Korean garments as they serve swag in a golden, temple-like structure. It’s an instantly eye-catching visual that’ll certainly live up to the hype.

And if the brief taste of the song’s anything to go by, fans of the hallyu supergroup are in for a melodic, mid-tempo track that blends, pop, R&B and even some world music influence into a stunning soundscape.


If that isn’t enough, rap goddess Nicki Minaj might even make a cameo on the track. According to various reports, a Shazam slip-up hinted that “Idol” will feature a guest spot from Chun-Li herself. There’s no official confirmation yet from either party, but we’re definitely down for this collab.
