BTS Star RM Taps Badu, .Paak + Mahalia For Debut Solo LP

For his debut solo full length, ‘Indigo,’ BTS-member RM (born Kim Nam-joon) recruited the assistance of international superstars Erykah Badu, Anderson .Paak and Mahalia.

Arriving 12.02, the 28-year-old Korean rapper has unveiled the impressive list of collaborators on the eagerly-awaited 10-tune album. The legendary Badu appears on the first track, ‘Yun’, followed by Silk Sonic-member .Paakon ‘Still Life’, while R’n’B British-Jamaican star Mahalia is joined by K Hip Hop star Paul Blanco on ‘Closer’.

In a statement about his debut LP, RM recently said “I had fun working on music, I think it will be completely different from ‘Mono.” “If ‘Mono’ recorded my 2016 to ’18, then I think this new album serves as my diary and archive for 2019 to ’22.”

RM most recently collab’d with fellow Korean act Balming Tiger on ‘Sexy Nukim, and his BTS band mate Jin just broke a record with his hit ‘The Astronaut’ becoming the fastest single by a solo artist to reach a million sales.

After the K-Pop boy band collaborated with Chris Martin’s team mates on the ‘My Universe’ mega-hit from Coldplay’s 2021 LP ‘Music of the Spheres’, the 29-year-old star teamed up with the ‘Yellow’ hitmakers to write his latest track that’s enjoyed massive success.
