BTS just made history – well, RM did. The leader of the group, who also speaks fluent English, just collaborated with Fall Out Boy on the remix of their hit song "Champion." While the BTS boys are seasoned veterans when it comes to the actual singing, they have just started to break into and see what the mainstream American music culture is like. Until now, the boys have yet to sing in English, which makes RM the first one to do so. It's groundbreaking, really. It's not only a huge accomplishment for RM but an amazing thing for individuals in the BTS Army who only speak English. It will for sure help catapult him and the group into further connecting with their English only speaking fans.
While this might be the first collaboration that has happened in English, BTS has worked with other big-name talents in the past several months. Some of these artists have included, Steve Aoki, Desiigner, Wale and The Chainsmokers. Now, Fall Out Boy has been added to the list. The band posted a tweet that read, "RM of @BTS_twt dropping some ? with this remix of Champion, out everywhere today."

The official BTS Twitter account posted the same photo with the message, "so great to work with @falloutboy ?⭐️?✨⚡️." We have a feeling this song is going to absolutely blow up. The remix has a total hip-hop feel and RM raps like a total pro. I'd be lying if I said this hasn't been on repeat all day. Of course, we'd love to see the rest of BTS put out a song in English, but we're not totally sure when and if that will happen. RM is usually the one that translates for the rest of the boys during American interviews and has even credited the show Friends for the reason why he's as fluent as he is.
Regardless of when and if a full-on English speaking track will be released by the boys, we've got RM's incredible vocals in "Champion" to lean on until then. BTS isn't going anywhere and hey, we're still listening to their songs all the time. With this new song, and RM showing off what he really is capable of, they are just getting started.
