BTS release new single 'Dream Glow' featuring Charlie XCX ahead of their upcoming game app of the same name
Less than two months after the release of their last album, BTS have decided to bless fans once again with some brand new music - this time in collab with singer Charlie XCX. The much talked about last album 'Map of the Soul: Persona' made them go stratospheric in the American music scene, and the latest single featuring Charlie XCX has three BTS band members - Jin, Jimin and Jungkook - coming together to create the iconic new song 'Dream Glow'.
Even though all the band members aren't appearing on the track, it has still been credited as part of BTS's music. But the song - yet another English speaking pop favorite - is focused on a whole different business venture for the band. The song has been released as part of an original soundtrack for the band's upcoming game of the same name.
The new track still, however, manages to remind listeners of the band's old music, especially songs like 'Boy with Luv,' and comes as a strong addition to the seven-member band's evolving and consistently growing discography.
The actual game which will include the song is to be released on June 26 and is expected to allow fans to become band members within the game.
The game will be released as an app and given the extremely ardent fanbase of the band - the BTS ARMY - there's no way the game will fail to be an immediate hit within the club. It is also commendable how BTS is expanding their discography with iconic female singers of our times, such as Halsey in the past for 'Boy With Luv,' and now the English pop star Charlie XCX for 'Dream Glow.'
Right now 'Boy With Luv' might be down to number 81 on the Hot 100 charts, but despite what looks like a steady fall, it still managed to earn the title of being the fifth-longest-charting K-pop song in the ranking’s history!
As for 'Dream Glow', the track was produced by StarGate, a duo responsible for blessing fans with some of the most popular songs in the recent past, such as Beyoncé's 'Irreplaceable', Rihanna's 'Rude Boy', 'S&M', Wiz Khalifa's 'Black and Yellow', and Katy Perry's 'Firework'.
