It is one of the busiest days of the year for BTS, as the group has just released their new album, Map of the Soul: Persona, earlier today. Along with the album, BTS debuted their collaboration with Halsey, titled “Boy With Luv.”
Instead of being in South Korea for their comeback, the guys are in New York City getting prepared to take the stage tomorrow on Saturday Night Live. After doing rehearsals for their performance yesterday, BTS stopped by the Elvis Duran Show for an interview.
The guys talked about New York City and how much the city means to them. RM said that NYC was where the music, specifically hip hop, all started. Hip hop has been a strong influence on the group’s music since their debut. NYC also where they had their first stadium show in the United States at Citi Field.
