BTS star RM has signed Erykah Badu, Anderson .Paak and Mahalia for his debut solo album ‘Indigo’.
The 28-year-old rapper has revealed the star roster of collaborators on the highly anticipated 10-track LP, which arrives December 2.
Legendary Erykah appears on opening track “Yun,” followed by hip-hop star Anderson on “Still Life,” while R’n’B British-Jamaican star Mahalia is joined by K Hip-hop star Paul Blanco on “Closer.”
RM’s music will continue to serve as his diary entries.
He recently explained: “I enjoyed working on music, I think it will be completely different from ‘Mono’.
“If ‘Mono’ recorded my 2016 to ’18, then I think this new album serves as my diary and archive for 2019 to ’22.”
He released two mixtapes, 2015’s ‘RM’ and 2018’s ‘Mono’.
RM recently joined forces with fellow Korean outfit Balming Tiger on the song “Sexy Nukim.”
Meanwhile, his bandmate Jin recently broke a record with his hit “The Astronaut” becoming the fastest single by a solo artist to reach one million sales.
After the K-Pop boy band collaborated with Chris Martin and co on the mega-hit ‘My Universe’ on the band’s 2021 LP ‘Music of the Spheres’, the 29-year-old star teamed up with the ‘Yellow’ hitmakers to pen his latest issue, and it has had astronomical success.
As of November 12, more than 1,024,382 copies of “The Astronaut” have shifted, according to The Korea Economic Daily.
In addition to adding to the lyrics, Coldplay performs on the track and Chris plays a news presenter in the accompanying music video.
