Can we expect a Alicia Keys x BTS collaboration in the near future?
ARMYs are certainly keeping their fingers crossed, especially after hearing Alicia’s beautiful piano cover of the mega K-pop group’s track, “Life Goes On”.
The multi-talented Grammy winner took to Twitter this morning (Thursday, 26th November) to surprise fans with a snippet of the “BE” title track, “Life Goes On”. “I bet y’all didn’t think I would play this one. Tell me if you know it,” she said, before delving straight into the melodic chorus of the hit song.
Music lovers were pleasantly surprised to hear the 39-year-old singer-songwriter lending her soulful vocals to a K-pop track. They were also impressed with her effort in translating the lyrics in “Life Goes On” to English.

Here’s the English translation:
“Like an echo in the forest
The day will come back around
As if nothing ever happen
아무 일도 없단 듯이
Yeah, life goes on (Oh, woah)
Like an arrow in the blue sky
또 하루 더 날아가지 (날아가지)
On my pillow, on my table
Yeah, life goes on
Like this again”
Could this be a doorway to a potential remix or collaboration between the two powerhouse artists? Fans are certainly campaigning for this to happen. It helps that the BTS members have also been a fan of Alicia.

Just last week, V uploaded a video of himself singing along to Alicia’s “Love Looks Better”. The singer noticed the adorable shoutout and responded, “Big love!!! Good morning… Y’all ready for BE?!?”
