Watch: Alicia Keys sings cover of 'Life Goes On'; BTS says 'honoured'
South Korean boy band BTS recently made a comeback with their album BE. The track ‘Life Goes On’ from the album has received a lot of love from people all around the world as it portrays the effect of the pandemic in everyone’s life and how life goes on despite the new changes.
Apart from fans, the song has also managed to warm the heart of Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys. Sharing her love for the track, the American singer posted her rendition of the single. Taking to Twitter, the ‘If I Ain't Got You’ singer wrote, “Can ya’ll guess this??” in the caption and shared her cover of the BTS track.
Fans were understandably going gaga over the uplifting cover. Soon, BTS also responded to the rendition and said: “Thank you.. such a big honor”.
This exchange comes after BTS member V was seen singing along Alicia Keys’ 2020 release ‘Love looks Better’ in a car last month. The video showed V jamming to the track and has managed to rack up over 9.4 million views on Twitter.
Alicia also re-tweeted the clip and promoted the Korean group’s upcoming album in her post. She wrote, “Big love!!! Good morning. Ya’ll ready for BE?!?”
BTS released their album BE just a few ago with a total of eight tracks, including their summer hit Dynamite and the lead single Life goes On. The K-pop band has tried to “express their mixed feelings about this situation—fear and anxiety mingled with the determination to overcome all this”.
