BTS Set to Perform New Song Called 'Fake Love' on 'Ellen'
Korean boy band BTS will release their Love Yourself: Tear album on May 18, and it looks like it will feature a song called “Fake Love,” according to a new report from Variety. On Tuesday (May 1), the outlet reported that BTS will return to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on May 25 to perform "Fake Love."
While there's no official word from Ellen about the upcoming guests, the show's executive producer, Andy Lassner, shared the Variety article on Twitter.
BTS are also set to perform a song from Tear at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20 in Las Vegas, where they're once again nominated for the top social artist award; the K-pop group took home the prize at last year's show.
The group first appeared on Ellen in November, making their U.S. daytime TV debut on the show.
Little information is currently known about BTS’ highly anticipated third LP and the track list has yet to be released. It will be the group’s first Korean album since last year’s Love Yourself: Her EP, which broke into the top 10 of the Billboard 200 when it landed at No. 7 in September.
Update: Billboard has reached out to BTS’ team for a comment regarding the song “Fake Love,” but has been unable to confirm at this time.
"We can only confirm that BTS will be in Ellen Degeneres Show, and we are discussing the details of the upcoming appearance with the show," said Big Hit Entertainment.
