K-Pop Kings BTS Announce New Album ‘Love Yourself (Her)’
K-Pop titans BTS broke the internet today (August 23) by announcing their new album Love Yourself ‘Her.’ The opus drops on September 18, but you can pre-order it from August 25. The 7-member group, who recently won Choice International Artist at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, is clearly thinking outside the box with promotion. They have been teasing the project with a series of abstract, emotional videos (watch a highlight reel below) and are planning to release four different versions of the album.
It goes without saying that expectations are sky high for the project. Last year, BTS made chart history when their sophomore album Wings debuted at number 26 on the Billboard 200. It become the highest-charting K-Pop album to date and racked up sales of more than one million copies worldwide. Since then, their profile has grown even bigger with an appearance at the Billboard Music Awards and a sold out North American arena tour. (You can read our review here). At this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Love Yourself ‘Her’ cracks the top 10.
