  4. Big Hit Entertainment has released an official statement addressing their announced collaboration with AKB48’s executive producer Yasushi Akimoto. On September 13, it was reported by Japanese outlets such as Billboard Japan and Nikkan Sports that BTS would be working with Yasushi Akimoto for their upcoming Japanese single.

The YouTube website states the following: “To verify that views are real and accurate, YouTube may temporarily slow down, freeze, or adjust the view count, as well as discard low-quality playbacks.” BTS opened their “Love Yourself” world tour over the weekend with two concerts in Seoul. They will be promoting “IDOL” on music shows for a week before heading around the globe to perform at sold-out shows, including their first ever solo stadium concert in the United States. via Soompi

  21. BTS has revealed new information about their highly-anticipated repackaged album, “Love Yourself: Answer”! Ahead of the album’s release on August 24 at 6 p.m. KST, the group has shared some exciting details about the new songs that fans can look forward to. In addition to Jin‘s solo track “Epiphany,” which was featured in BTS’s comeback trailer earlier this month, the upcoming album will also include three solo songs by the group’s rap line. J-Hope‘s “Trivia : Just Dance” will express the youthful feelings of falling in love by comparing them to dancing, while the lyrics of RM‘s “Trivia : Love” will discuss love in a blunt, more direct manner. As for Suga‘s solo track, “Trivia : Seesaw,” the song will not only feature his skillful rapping, but will also give the rapper a chance to showcase his vocal talents as well. Meanwhile, fans who have been following the group since their “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” days are in for a treat—BTS’s new song “I’m Fine” will hark back to the group’s popular 2016 track “Save Me.” The new track will cleverly turn “Save Me” on its head by using the song’s lyrics to create an entirely different meaning—a concept that BTS has been playing with since 2017, when they first released their posters for the “Love Yourself” series. (Several of the posters featured writing that could be read as either “Save me” or “I’m fine” when turned upside down.) The album will also feature the title track “IDOL,” for which BTS released a colorful and striking music video teaser on August 23.
