BTS is kicking off the weekend on a high note.

The Korean pop group dropped its new single "Idol" from its highly anticipated album Love Yourself: Answer on Friday. But that's not all. The artists also revealed a surprise collaboration with Nicki Minaj

That's right! The "Super Bass" rapper appears on a digital version of the K-pop stars' new hit. However, according to Billboard, she does not appear on the group's physical album.

Minja shared the big news on Twitter. 

"Uh!!! What's Good KOREA?!" she tweeted along with a picture of the new track.

It certainly has been a busy time for Minaj. Earlier this month, she dropped her new album, Queen. She also attended the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on Monday and took home the trophy for Best Hip Hop. In addition, she's getting ready to go on tour with Future for their NickiHndrxx show. However, fans may have to wait a little longer considering she just postponed the tour.

BTS has been busy, as well. In addition to releasing new music, the group is about to begin their world tour.
