“You know I’ve been a boss for my whole career / I’m ’bout to Jet in the Lear,” Nicki Minaj raps, boasting about her place in rap’s upper echelon. “And put more than my hands in the air / Hands in the air, put your hands in the air / If you getting money, rubber bands in the air.”
The original “IDOL” video racked up the strongest 24-hour YouTube debut in history, so expect this one to go viral and hit the trending charts very, very soon.

The previous version of “IDOL” serves as the lead single in support of BTS’ Love Yourself: Answer album, which captured the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, making BTS the very first Korean group to claim the coveted No. 1 slot.
