The answer is here: BTS’ Love Yourself: Answer, that is.
Released at 5AM EST, Answer is the third and final part BTS’ record-breaking Love Yourself series that kicked f last September with Love Yourself: Her and was followed by May’s Love Yourself: Tear, which went on to become the first-ever No. 1 album by a Korean act on the Billboard 200.
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 "DNA" and an extended version "Serendipity."
“Idol” was released in two different versions, one with only the seven members BTS and one featuring a rap verse from Nicki Minaj. The latter is only available digitally.
Love Yourself: Answer’s release comes ahead the BTS’ upcoming Love Yourself world tour, which will bring the group to North America at the start next month. They’ll close out the local leg 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.
