BTS has finally dropped their highly-anticipated album Map of the Soul: Persona along with visuals to their Halsey-assisted track, “Boy With Luv.”

Aiming to be a summer banger, the single’s visuals see both BTS and Halsey dressed in bubble gum pinks and pastel tones as they dance around equally vibrant set-pieces. For fans that noticed, the track’s title is a callback to a previous BTS song from their 2014 album Skool Luv Affair.

On the collaborative project Halsey shared on Twitter, “I’m so glad to see everyone excited + talking about #BoyWithLuv! All your ???s will be answered when it’s here! ARMY thank you for embracing this collab + remember your boys love you + always want to make you happy. And as for my crew I can’t wait for you to see this side of me! This has been a historic opportunity and we’ve had a blast.”

Check out “Boy With Luv” above and stream the 7-track EP Map of the Soul: Persona below which includes a guest appearance from Ed Sheeran on “Make It Right.”

BTS will be taking on musical guest duties during this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live with Emma Stone as host.
