I don’t know if I should be afraid or impressed, but BTS fans have managed to momentarily crash TikTok. How, and I genuinely mean this, do you crash that cursed app?
So here’s what happened: BTS rolled out a 30-second preview of their latest single exclusively on TikTok on Thursday. The tune, On is from their shiny new album Map Of The Soul : 7. The K-pop group also told fans to get involved with the ON Challenge on TikTok as well, which is pretty much a dance challenge to their new track. All very standard areas.
And well, TikTok broke. TikTok, the Content App, momentarily broke.

Not to mention, BTS will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 24 for a special episode. And by special I mean an extended interview on the subway, a performance of a new tune, and a casual tour to New York hot spots including Grand Central Terminal. Fallon will ask questions sent in from fans, so expect some goodies. AND, BTS’ Carpool Karaoke episode with James Corden will air the next day.Image: Getty Images / Noam Galai
