BTS Confirms Collaboration With Nicki Minaj on ‘Love Yourself: Answer’

BTS’ agency, Big Hit Entertainment, has officially confirmed a collaboration between BTS and Nicki Minaj just hours before the group is expected to make their comeback.

According to the agency, the rapper will feature on a special release of the group’s new single, “IDOL,” that will only be included in the digital version of BTS’ Love Yourself: Answer album. Big Hit Entertainment also revealed the track will sound slightly different than the original version, as it includes a rap from Minaj.

Rumors about the team-up began two days ago after BTS fans ran a teaser of the group’s upcoming single through the Shazam app and saw that the track came up as “BTS feat. Nicki Minaj.”

The rapper then added to the rumors once she began liking tweets from fans who speculated a collaboration between her and the group.

Earlier this month, BTS and Nicki Minal also sparked rumors about a potential collaboration when the two began interacting with each other on Twitter. After Minaj released her album, Queen, a BTS member went online and tweeted, “love Nicki’s new album,” leading the rapper to tweet back, “Love you guys. Thank you.” Check out their tweets below.

BTS will drop their new album, Love Yourself: Answer, later today on August 24th.
