BTS will release a song for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar


As if there wasn’t enough anticipation for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, groundbreaking K-pop group BTS would be releasing a brand new song for the event.

The group – made up of members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM (formerly Rap Monster), Jimin, V, RM and Jungkook – are ambassadors for World Cup sponsor Hyundai, will release the song as part of the company’s global “Goal Of The Century” campaign.

On September 20, Hyundai released a teaser for the song on their Instagram page.

“Warm up, stretch your legs and get ready to dance along with BTS and their new edition of ‘Yet To Come’. Stay tuned!” writes the company.

Football World Cup too announcement a gift in collaboration with the K-pop boy bandswhere fans can have a chance to win a trip to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

So is BTS producing the official 2022 World Cup anthem?

While a BTS-World Cup collaboration is newsworthy, it’s not the official anthem for the highly anticipated event.

With a month of sports and action drama, music has always been a big part of the festivities. The World Cup brings together dozens of nations and cultures, so it would make sense for music to be at the center of this melting pot.


This year, the anthem is Hayya Hayya (Better Together) performed by Trinidad Cardona, Davido and AISHA.
