K-pop boy band BTS has an enormous global following that some suggest exceeds the popularity of a band like One Direction at its highpoint! The band has made notable appearances in the US at the 2020 Grammys and the 2020 New Year's Rockin' Eve at Times Square.
BTS performed their new single, "Black Swan," on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in January. The band's huge fanbase - which is especially vocal on Twitter and social media - speculated that BTS would participate on the show's well-known "Carpool Karaoke" segment. They did not.
But host James Corden has now announced that BTS will return for the segment next week.

BTS will release new album before Carpool Karaoke
BTS's new album Map of the Soul: 7 comes out on February 21. The band will appear in the segment on The Late Late Show on February 25, so it's possible the band will perform new songs from the album with Corden.
The seven-member band debuted in 2013 with their album 2 Cool 4 Skool.
