The digital-only version of “ON” featuring Sia came out when BTS reached out to Sia to work together on one of the tracks from their album “Map Of The Soul: 7”. Fans are super excited as BTS is also collaborating with a few other amazing artists.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, The BTS boys were asked about how do they feel working with Sia, what was the experience like collaborating with her? To which, J-Hope replied:
Every time we do these collaborations, we are always amazed. We are able to work with these great artists.

And all you, I got shocked. This song just got to go to like billboard #1, I tweeted about that.
On | About The Track
BTS x Sia’s ON is also the album’s title track. Whose 30 seconds audio preview was first released on early Friday morning through a worldwide video platform “TikTok”. The preview temporarily crashed the app, and that was expected because it’s BTS.
The Sia collaboration of “ON” is only a special digital-only release. It will not be available on the physical copies of the Album “Map Of The Soul: 7.”
“ON” is basically a proof of BTS’s loyalty. The band members are working together for seven years. Moreover, this track is about becoming stronger by dealing with one’s shadows. The title of the song is also a reference to BTS’s 2013 track, N.O. It highlights the ups and downs the band had to face during the past 7 years of their musical journey.
