BTS’ record label Big Hit Entertainment surprised fans today with the announcement that Nicki Minaj is featured on the digital version of the group’s “Idol.” The Idol digital version is the last track of BTS’ new repackaged album, Love Yourself: Answer, which is available today.
The label added that the song is not included in the physical copy of the album. Nicki Minaj’s signature rapping style reimagines “Idol” in an interesting way, it said.
