BTS’ Love Yourself: Answer, is out and ready to break records.
Released at 5AM EST, Answer is the third and final part of BTS’ record-breaking Love Yourself series that kicked off last September with Love Yourself: Her and was followed by May’s Love Yourself: Tear,.
The new album is a compilation, or repackage as its known in South Korea, that is fronted by the single “Idol” and features more than two dozen tracks. Some are new songs, while other were originally featured on prior Love Yourself albums, including past singles "DNA" and "Fake Love." The album also contains several alternative versions, including a "Pedal 2 LA" remix of "DNA" and an extended version of "Serendipity."
“Idol” was released in two different versions, one with only the seven members of BTS and one featuring a rap verse from Nicki Minaj. The latter is only available digitally.
Love Yourself: Answer’s release comes ahead of the BTS’ upcoming Love Yourselfworld tour, which will bring the group to North America at the start of next month. They’ll close out the local leg of the tour with a historic, sold-out show at New York City’s Citi Field, the first-ever stadium-size Stateside show by a Korean act.
