On Monday, April 27, EDAM Entertainment confirmed that IU’s upcoming single comes with a music video. 

“IU will be releasing a digital single on May 6, and she will also be releasing a music video along with her music,” a representative from EDAM Entertainment said in a statement. 

In the same statement, EDAM Entertainment revealed that IU, dubbed Nation’s Little Sister in South Korea, collaborated on the track with Suga — one of the members of K-Pop group BTS. 

“As musicians of the same age, the two singers were able to relate to one another and use that as a foundation for exchanging opinions. They created their own unique synergy, which is reflected in their song.”

The said announcement sent fans into a frenzy — calling the alliance of the two artists “Collaboration of the Year.” 

Several others threw in their early predictions, saying the song will surely make it to the top of the charts as soon as it comes out. 

The song is said to hold a special significance to IU as Soompi reported that she personally participated in the entire production process of the song.
