BTS has a new song charting right now called "Idol" featuring Nicki Minaj that hit the 11th spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The band then celebrated by releasing a new music video with a new version of the song.

The video was an instant hit, with over 7.8 million views in its first day on YouTube. It was also a huge favorite, with 1.9 million likes compared to a small 26,000 dislikes.

Expect the numbers to rise even more. The original video for "Idol" was the biggest YouTube debut video of all time, breaking the original record of 45 million views for Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do." It was also the fastest to 100 million views in 2018 so far.

The new version of BTS's "Idol" has Nicki Minaj popping up at about the 3:30 mark of the video, sprawled out on a couch with luxury items surrounding her. The other major difference between the two videos is that there are scenes of fans at the end taking the "Idol" dance challenge.

"Idol" is the first song to hit from the new album Love Yourself: Answer, which went on sale on Aug. 24. This was the second album in 2018 alone by BTS to hit number one on the Billboard 200.
