Being the first Korean artist to have three albums on the top position on the Billboard 200 chart, and the first Korean artist to top the UK album chart, global superstars BTS will be releasing their latest Japanese single ‘Lights/Boy With Luv’ on July 3.
The latest Japanese single features a new original song, “Lights” and the Japanese version of their recent mega hits “Boy With Luv” and “IDOL”. “Lights” will also be the first Japan-original song in four years that will be accompanied by a music video.
“Lights” conveys the message of hope that one can connect with the others through sounds and see each other’s lights whenever they close their eyes.
MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA reached No. 1 in 86 regions immediately after the album’s digital release, topping both the Billboard 200 (on 27 April 2019) and U.K.’s Official Albums Chart 100 (on 19 April 2019). The group gave their first performance on Saturday Night Live on April 13. From the album “Boy With Luv” feat. Halsey ranked at No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart (on April 27 2019) – the highest record ever by a Korean group – and earned three Guinness certifications as the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours, most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours, and most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a K-Pop group.
