The world of Kpop is always buzzing with news of all the latest comebacks and collabs. But this announcement has been stealing headlines across the globe: BTS’ Suga and IU teaming up for a brand new track!
For those of you who need a little context, IU aka Lee Ji-eun entered the game way back in 2008. From then on, she’s grown and evolved as a musician, finding a comfortable genre to play around with for her latest discography.
Her last album titled, ‘Palette’ emerged in 2017, winning awards in all major music categories, including ‘Album of the Year’. She further went on to star in the hit K Drama ‘Hotel De Luna’, receiving critical acclaim for her performance.
Now, her agency, EDAM Entertainment, has announced that the singer will be making her highly-anticipated return in May.
A representative of the agency stated: “IU will be releasing a digital single on May 6, and she will also be releasing a music video.”
Speaking about her collab with BTS’ resident rapper, EDAM Entertainment stated, “As musicians of the same age, the two singers were able to relate to one another and use that as a foundation for exchanging opinions. They created their own unique synergy, which is reflected in their song.”
The song is also said to be a step away from what she’s crafted before. As per usual, IU has had a hand in every single stage, from putting down the lyrics, to the production process to drawing out the trajectory this single will probably take.
There’s no sight of the song’s teaser nor title just yet, but who knows what other surprises the week will unearth?
