Alicia Keys surprised BTS fans this morning (26/11) with a gorgeous version of 'Life Goes On'.
The American singer-songwriter took to Twitter to post a snippet of an acoustic cover of BE's title track, ‘Life Goes On’.
Like an old friend, BTS' BE brings comfort in the simplest way: through music and encouraging words – album review
Before starting, she said playfully, “I bet y’all didn’t think I would play this one. Tell me if you know it.” She then dives right into covering the chorus of the hit song, whilst playing the piano soulfully.

Fans were evidently overjoyed to see the interaction and have Alicia Keys cover the song, especially when Keys made a conscious effort to translate it. There were also tons of fan theories, with many hoping for a potential remix or collaboration between the two stars.

All the respect to Alicia Keys for not only listening to LGO and loving it to the point of wanting to cover it but for also taking the time to read the lyrics and translate them the way they are meant to be sang in Korean. Some people should take notes.— ᴮᴱAhlem⁷ (@hopefulmyg) November 26, 2020
