The #AhlamxBTS hashtag topped Twitter’s trending list after Emirati songstress Ahlam confirmed that there will be a collaboration between her and the famous K-Pop band BTS.
After Ahlam’s response, #AhlamxBTS hashtag broke Twitter, while followers shared conflicting comments.
While the artist’s followers expressed their enthusiasm for this collaboration asking her to reveal more details, wondering whether it will be a single song or a concert, there were some negative and cynical comments too.
Some felt there could be a clash in a collaboration between the Emirati singer and the Korean band, due to the differences in their art forms.
Meanwhile, others questioned the credibility there being a collaboration at all despite Ahlam’s response saying it might all just be a big joke.
BTS is a South Korean pop band made up of 7 young male members. They are very popular in the Arabian Gulf in general and in Saudi Arabia in particular, and the band was able to form a large fan base around the world despite their young age, leading them to perform in numerous concerts globally.
