As alternative rockers Fall Out Boy get ready to release their upcoming seventh full-length Mania , the group is doing everything they can to drum up excitement about their new music and potentially score a hit.

BTS member RM (formerly known as Rap Monster) has put his spin on recent single “Champion,” which now sounds completely different. In addition to the K-pop star lending both his name and his talents to the track, the music has changed, and it’s gone from rocking anthem to something of an electronic-pop burner. The attention this new version will receive might be enough to make it the hit that’s been missing from this era of Fall Out Boy’s career, and it would be wonderful to see RM score another hit in the U.S.

At the moment, only a snippet of the newly-remixed tune is available in America via Apple Music, but the full version is slated to drop at midnight. Fans of both Fall Out Boy and BTS in Korea have already been playing the collaboration since it’s past midnight over there, and people seem to be excited about the partnership.

Fall Out Boy rose to the forefront of emo pop in the mid-2000s, selling more than four million albums thanks to the band’s tabloid-grabbing bassist, able-voiced frontman, and handful of Top 40 hits. The group’s four members first came together in Wilmette, a bedroom community 14 miles north of Chicago, around 2001. Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley, and guitarist Joe Trohman had all taken part in various bands connected to Chicago’s underground hardcore scene. Most notably, Hurley drummed for Racetraitor, the furiously political metalcore outfit whose brief output was both a rallying point and sticking point within the hardcore community. As Fall Out Boy, the quartet used the unbridled intensity of hardcore as a foundation for melody-drenched pop-punk, with a heavy debt to the emo scene. They debuted with a self-released demo in 2001, following it up in May 2002 with a split LP (issued on the Uprising label) that also featured Project Rocket, for which Hurley also drummed. The band remained with the label for the release of a mini-LP, Fall Out Boy’s Evening Out with Your Girl, but a bidding war of sorts was already in full swing. Fall Out Boy eventually signed a deal with Fueled by Ramen, the Florida-based label co-owned by Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello, but also received an advance from Island Records to record a proper debut album. The advance came with a right of first refusal for Island on Fall Out Boy’s next album, but it also financed the recording of Take This to Your Grave, which occurred at Butch Vig’s Smart Studios compound in Madison, Wisconsin, with producer Sean O’Keefe (Lucky Boys Confusion, Motion City Soundtrack) at the helm. Take This to Your Grave appeared in May 2003, and Fall Out Boy earned positive reviews for subsequent gigs at South by Southwest and various tour appearances. Their breakout album, the ambitious From Under the Cork Tree, followed in spring 2005, quickly reaching the Top Ten of Billboard’s album chart and spawning two Top Ten hits with “Sugar We’re Going Down” and the furiously upbeat “Dance, Dance.” The album went double platinum and earned the musicians a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. Fall Out Boy’s underground star status — driven by the especially extroverted Wentz, who also gained exposure with his clothing line, his Decaydance record label (an imprint of Fueled by Ramen), and eventually a celebrity relationship with Ashlee Simpson — had boiled over into the mainstream. They toured extensively, supporting the album with international tours, arena shows, TRL visits, late-night television gigs, and music award shows. Without taking a break, the guys then hunkered down to work on their follow-up record with From Under the Cork Tree producer Neil Avron (and, somewhat surprisingly, Babyface). Infinity on High, whose title was taken from a line in one of Van Gogh’s personal letters, appeared in early February 2007, spearheaded by the hit single “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race.” The album continued Fall Out Boy’s streak, debuting at number one on the Billboard charts and going platinum one month later. Released in early 2008, the CD/DVD package Live in Phoenix documented the band’s strength as a flashy live act, while the full-length studio effort Folie a Deux followed later that year. Recording sessions for Folie a Deux were tough, prompting the band to take an open-ended hiatus soon after the album’s release. Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley joined a new band, Damned Things, during the interim, while Wentz teamed up with a new vocalist, Bebe Rexha, to form Black Cards. Stump took the opportunity to launch a solo career, ditching his band’s emo pop music in favor of a more electronic, R&B-influenced; sound. Stump released his debut solo album Soul Punk in 2011 and, despite some positive reviews, the album didn’t catch fire. Pete Wentz spent time with a new band called Black Cards, but that also didn’t really go anywhere, and it wasn’t long before rumors of a Fall Out Boy reunion began to swirl. In February 2013, the band confirmed that the rumors were true: they had reunited for a new album called Save Rock and Roll and an accompanying tour. Preceded by the single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up),” Save Rock and Roll was released in April of 2013 and promptly debuted at number one on the U.S. charts. The band kept busy as well during the subsequent year, creating a video for each song on the album, recording the punk-inspired EP Pax-Am Days (with production from Ryan Adams), and headlining tours that reached America, Europe, and Australia. In late 2014, Fall Out Boy premiered a new single, “Centuries,” the first glimpse of their sixth album, American Beauty/American Psycho. Produced in part by J.R. Rotem and SebastiAn, it combined Fall Out Boy’s core punk-pop sound with elements of electronica, R&B;, and hip-hop. The album debuted at number one when it was released the following January and it stayed on the charts thanks to the Munsters-sampling single “Uma Thurman,” which was certified platinum. Fall Out Boy released a remix version of the album called Make America Psycho Again in October 2015. In April 2017, the band revealed that their forthcoming seventh album, Mania, would be released later that year. The announcement was accompanied by the album’s first single, “Young and Menace.” ~ Johnny Loftus & Corey Apar

[Verse 1: RM]
Yo, should I be a star? Baby, I think I already are
Not a saint, not that great, feel like I was born a car
In ’94, the world started me and I’ve been driving
Sometimes a man just can’t open his car, and
Ain’t gotta be somebody, be anybody
Rather be anybody than live in a dead body
If you can’t see me then find a helicopter
In the night sky, shine like a star

[Verse 2: Patrick]
And I’m back with a madness
I’m a champion of the people who don’t believe in champions
I got nothing but dreams inside
I got nothing but dreams

[Pre-Chorus: Patrick]
I’m just young enough to still believe, still believe
But young enough not to know what to believe in
Young enough not to know what to believe in

[Chorus: Patrick]
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything

[Refrain]
Champion, champion
Champion, champion

[Verse 3: Patrick]
I got rage every day, on the inside
The only thing I do is sit around and kill time
I’m trying to blow out the pilot light, I’m trying to blow out the light

[Pre-Chorus: Patrick]
I’m just young enough to still believe, still believe
But young enough not to know what to believe in
Young enough not to know what to believe

[Chorus: Patrick]
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything

[Verse 4: RM]
Have you ever felt how hard it is to be an anybody
To be living, to be breathing, not choosing a dead body
Remember, the man told me that this life is a party
Yeah, all the glory’s so short you should put away the garbages
Normal ain’t normal, ordinary is a luxury
People say “woo, pessimism” why do you all on me?
If you wanna understand, you stand under
This shit is vital, respect to the mothers and fathers
What’s wrong with the life of a passenger
If somebody gotta be then I’mma be the messenger
I’m just too young don’t know what to believe in
But too young, you know, not to be living
I will stay, I will wait and I’ll fall like a king
Even though I can forever ever be a king
I will marry this goddamn world by my own
And put my self on the goddamn ring

[Chorus: Patrick]
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything
I can do anything I can
Do anything, anything, yeah
If I can live through this
If I can live through, live through this

[Extended Chorus]
If I can live through this (If I can live through this)
If I can live through this (If I can live through)
If I can live through this (If I can live through this)
I can do anything
(I can do anything)
If I can live through this
(I can do anything)
If I can live through this
(I can do anything)
If I can live through this
I can do anything

Champion, champion

The song will be available in your respective timezones on the 15th and I will update the post with proper streaming links then (i.e tomorrow).

Kolaborasi dengan musisi dari Amerika Serikat kali ini bukan menjadi yang pertama kali bagi RM. Sebelumnya, rapper sekaligus produser dan pencipta lagu tersebut juga sudah pernah merilis lagu kolaborasi spesial dengan Wale. Sedangkan BTS sebelumnya baru saja meluncurkan single kolaborasi dengan Desiigner, Mic Drop remix yang digarap oleh DJ Steve Aoki.

The 2000s are alive and well in the new Fall Out Boy and BTS remix for “Champion,” a cross-generational team-up from two of the last decade’s biggest bands. The song a set to be released on Friday, Dec. 15 a is a revamped take of Fall Out Boy’s June single of the same name , which was the second song to come from their upcoming seventh album, Mania . It’s currently unavailable in American markets, but thanks to a few exuberant international fans, leaked clips can be found online. From the sounds of it, the track keeps Fall Out Boy’s pop rock melodies intact, but weaves in some hip-hop flair with a guest verse from RM, BTS’ main rapper .

It’s an unexpected pairing, but one that oddly makes sense. Fall Out Boy came of age in the Myspace era , launching from suburban Illinois to mainstream stardom with the release of their 2005 major label breakthrough, From Under The Cork Tree . At the height of their success, they were nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy ; landed a No. 1 album with their best-selling third effort, Infinity On High ; and released hit singles like “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down,” “Dance, Dance,” “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race,” and “Thnks fr th Mmrs.” By the late aughts, their fame began to wane, and they took a five-year hiatus after 2008’s Folie A Deux before returning in 2013 with Save Rock and Roll . They’ve yet to return to the same recognition they enjoyed in the beginnings of their career, but have steadily been putting out music, and for many that grew up in the early aughts, they remain a nostalgic staple.

Now, BTS are the boy band au courant . It would be a stretch to say Fall Out Boy paved the way for them , but indirectly, they’ve passed up the torch a save for a few changes of hands in between (looking at you, One Direction). The K-pop seven-piece have been mega-popular in their home country of South Korea for several years, but only recently found international recognition, in part because of collaborations with U.S. artists like The Chainsmokers and Desiigner. Like Fall Out Boy, BTS are internet famous, though they’ve been propelled by more modern networks like Twitter. In 2016, Forbes listed them as the most retweeted artist on the entire platform; in 2017, they broke Guinness World Record for most Twitter engagements for a music group; and the same year, Time magazine named them one of the 25 most influential people on the internet.

NAMJOON I’M SO PROUD OF YOU OMG dddd @BTS_twt. NAMJOON GOT FEATURED ON CHAMPION (REMIX) by @falloutboy

Stylistically, BTS and Fall Out Boy couldn’t be more different, but they’ve shared similar trajectories, and in a year as left of field as 2017, it’s not surprising that they collaborated. Music has seen some of its most eclectic couplings yet, including Hot 100 singles like Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Spanish pop phenomenon “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, and “Let Me Go,” a genre-clashing mash-up by pop star Hailee Steinfeld, electro producer Alesso, rock songwriter Andrew Watt, and country duo Florida Georgia Line.

And even if their sound is different, the two groups definitely have one thing in common a loyal fanbases. Based on the reactions to the “Champions” remix before it’s even dropped in the U.S., fans across the globe are already so pumped. Seriously, they seem to be bringing together generations.

I still cant believe @falloutboy and @BTS_twt RM collaborated… my high school memories from teenage and my 30s right now are collaborating too dod>>dod>>dod>>dod1/2dod?dod1/4 #RMxFallOutBoy

BTS’ Namjoon is collaborating with Fallout Boy. My heart is so happy for his recognition! d$?dd #ChampionRemix #RMxFalloutboy dY=

If this collab teaches people anything, it’s that music really can bridge the gap and bring people together. And if you’re a U.S. fan who’s eager to hear more than just a snippet of the song, you only have to wait a little longer. It’s dropping at midnight Friday, so grab that eyeliner and prepare accordingly.
