Malaysian star Yuna thinks it’s time to work with South Korean septet BTS, she revealed in a tweet on Wednesday (Oct. 31).   

“I think it’s time for a collab with @BTS_twt,” the Malaysian singer-songwriter wrote on Twitter. “2019 what do you think??” She added that she’s “Just putting it out there into the universe” and that she’s “Just ready for anything 2019! Let’s do it.”

Within 24 hours of tweeting, Yuna’s post got liked over 30,000 times and shared by over 14,000 accounts.

In the past, Yuna has released songs with Usher, G-Eazy, Pharrell Williams, and many others. It was the first time she expressed interest in working with the chart-topping group.

Active since the mid-2000s as a singer-songwriter, Yuna began releasing internationally-focused albums in 2012 and has seen much success around the world. Her last album Chapters went to No. 16 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart upon its release in 2016, and was recognized as one of the year’s best R&B albums. Last year saw her single "Best Love" go to No. 19 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.

BTS recently returned to South Korea after finishing up the sold-out North American and European legs of their Love Yourself world tour. Last week saw them release the single “Waste It On Me” with Steve Aoki.
