On Friday 24th August, British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran left a small message on his Instagram story for BTS. Under details for a competition that he is running, he tagged Big Hit Entertainment, stating “Congrats to BTS who are about to have an incredible week. Cool album.”
The message followed BTS’s release of the music video for IDOL as well as their repackaged album Love Yourself: Answer which has since reached #1 on the UK iTunes Chart.
Ed Sheeran is not the only artist to congratulate the K-Pop group on their success, with Halsey tweeting that she “can’t sleep” because she was too busy analysing the music video to “IDOL”.
