Conan Gray and BTS are working on something huge.
Dating back to the earliest days of TikTok, Conan Gray has been one of the platform’s most visible influencers—and he’s only getting more popular by collaborating with K-pop sensation BTS.
The two collaborated during Conan’s guest appearance on the season premiere of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and now they’re teaming up again to release an entire album together!
The record, titled ConSoul: Heart & Soul, features songs written by both artists as well as some covers of classics like Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” and Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain.” Conan Gray is a TikTok star, and BTS is a K-pop group.
The two have been hanging out in South Korea this week, and we’re guessing Conan is working on something big while he’s there.
Conan Gray has thousands of followers on TikTok (the app that lets you create short videos to share with friends). The platform has become popular thanks to its ease of use—you can create clips using just your phone—and its culture of sharing fun and silly content. Conan is known for his comedy sketches, like this one where he sings about his crush.
Conan Gray Get Fans Excited
But Conan isn’t the only big name on TikTok right now: BTS recently shared a clip with their own take on the “Frozen” song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” That video went viral earlier this summer after it was first posted. It had over 4 million views at the time of writing! BTS will be the first-ever K-pop group to perform on Conan’s late night show and we’re so excited to watch it happen!
The band members are currently overseas in South Korea filming a documentary with Jimmy Fallon, but they’ll be flying into New York City for the appearance on Wednesday, May 7th. That means you won’t have long to wait until you can see them perform their hit songs live—so if you’re living in or traveling to the Big Apple anytime soon, make sure you tune into TBS at 11:00 p.m.
The best part of all? Conan is going to be there too! So maybe he’ll get up onstage himself for some fun footage of this once-in-a-lifetime moment (fingers crossed).
