The number, which received one of the loudest receptions of the night, marked the boy band’s first live performance with the American singer, who recently penned their feature on Time 100.
For all the historical milestones an “underdog” boy group from a small label in South Korea has surpassed in the name of K-pop, it’s an absolute no-brainer that BTS would make it to Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019.
The list — divided into pioneers, artists, leaders, icons and titans — is a collection of essays penned by others associated with those who made the cut, and for BTS’s feature, Time selected Grammy-nominated pop singer Halsey, who collaborated with the group in their latest comeback “Boy With Luv.”
K-Pop powerhouse BTS just made history yet again with their comeback song “Boy With Luv” featuring American pop singer Halsey.
According to the platform, the song’s music video raked in 78 million views within its first 24 hours, beating the previous record of 56.7 million set by fellow K-Pop act BlackPink with “Kill This Love” just a week ago.
