South Korean super group BTS has a special collaboration with rapper Nicki Minaj in their latest album, and fandoms of the two acts are going crazy over it.
The album “Love Yourself: Answer,” released by the popular K-pop boy band on Friday, includes a digital version of the song “Idol” featuring the rap queen.
Nicki Minaj has been accused of cultural appropriation for her performance of “Chun-Li,” her latest single, on Saturday Night Live.
Keeping up with the song’s concept, the Trinidadian-born American rapper kicked off her performance with a Kimono-inspired coat and backup dancers on an Asian-style pavilion.
Nicki Minaj’s newest single “Chun-Li” may have meant to deliver an entirely different message, but it still birthed a meme that many have criticized for promoting a stereotypical image of Asian culture.
The popular track, which is named after a popular female character from the video game franchise “Street Fighter,” has inspired the “Chun Li Challenge,” a new viral video trend that immediately caught traction online.
