The first Korean artist to send three albums to the top position on the Billboard 200 chart, and the first Korean artist to top the UK album chart, global superstars BTS will be releasing their latest Japanese single‘Lights / Boy With Luv’ digitally on July 3rd, 2019 (Japan time), followed by the physical products on July 5th, 2019 in the U.S.

The latest Japanese single features a new original song, “Lights,” and the Japanese version of their recent mega hits “Boy With Luv” and “IDOL.”

“Lights” conveys the message of hope that one can connect with the others through sounds and see each other’s lights whenever they close their eyes.  The song will also be the first Japan-original song in four years that will be accompanied by a music video.
