Prepare for the collab of the century, you guys! Yep, that’s right, we’re talking about BTS and Charli XCX. It appears the artists are teaming up for a new song called “Glow,” and lucky for you guys, we’ve got all the deets.
According to Metro, the song has been registered to BMI (an electronic database that artists use to get paid for their tunes) and lists the K-pop band and the “Boom Clap” singer as the songwriters and composers. It’s unfortunately still unclear whether Charli will be performing on the new track with BTS or if she’s just contributed to the songwriting.
Naturally, as soon as the news hit the web, the internet quickly went wild.
“It’s gonna be a bop,” one fan wrote, while another added, “I’m here for this.”

“I can’t wait for it, it’s going to be amazing for sure,” a third fan gushed.

Fans have certainly been waiting a long time for this moment since the two artists have been friends for almost two years now! Back in August 2017, the 26-year-old posted a picture hanging out with the boys, sending the both fanbases into a frenzy.
“First day as the newest member of @BTS_twt,” she wrote on Twitter. “Love you guys.”

As fans know, the band dropped their new album, Map of the Soul: Persona, on April 12, and it was full of bops. Not to mention that it also contained two epic collaborations. One was a song they cowrote with Ed Sheeran, called “Make It Right,” and the other was a duet with Halsey, called “Boy With Luv.” So the fact that they’re already hard on work on some more new music is truly a blessing!
There’s unfortunately no release date for “Glow” yet, but we’re hoping they announce something soon! We cannot wait to hear it.
