This news comes just after the leader of BTS, RM broke the news of his first-ever solo album, Indigo, which will be released on December 2, 2022. Another fellow member, Jin, also recently released his latest solo track, ‘The Astronaut’ in collaboration with Coldplay—the track is currently ranking No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100. Earlier this year, Jungkook collaborated with Charlie Puth for their hit single, ‘Left and Right’ and then later went on to work with Benny Blanco and Snoop Dogg along with his members, Jimin, Jin and V for the song, ‘Bad Decisions’.
Hosted by Qatar, the 2022 FIFA World Cup will have 32 countries competing against each other and then on December 18, the winning team will be given the title of world champion. If this wasn’t already the most-awaited event of the year, this news definitely pushed it over the edge.
