Halsey says dancing with BTS in ‘Boy With Luv’ music video was “very intimidating”

Because they're "so incredible"

Halsey has spoken about her experience making the viral music video for her hit collaboration with BTS‘Boy With Luv’.

The American pop star appeared in a video broadcasted as part of the K-pop group’s global press conference about their new record, ‘Map Of The Soul: Persona’.

“Being on set with BTS is very intimidating because they are all so incredible,” Halsey said in the clip, before adding that the boys made her “feel really calm and at home”.


“When it came to making this video I decided that I wanted to do choreography with them. I’ve never done
choreography in a dance video before so it was something new for me but they were so nice and encouraging and they made me feel like I could really do it,” she added.

Elsewhere in the video the ‘Bad At Love’ singer said that she thinks ‘Boy With Luv’ is a strong crossover of American and South Korean pop music.

“It was really cool for us to come together and do something that reflects all of us, I think. It’s a really special marriage of music in America and music in Korea that’s our music for the world and I think that’s really, really amazing.”

Yesterday (April 16) BTS and Halsey smashed the record for the most viewed music video debut in YouTube history with ‘Boy With Luv’, only a day after it was set by Blackpink.


The video for their collaboration, which landed on Sunday (April 14) amassed a staggering 74.6 million views in its first 24 hours. It’s almost twenty million more views than Blackpink’s ‘Kill This Love’, which scored some 56.7 million only a day previous.
