Throughout her career, Madonna has remained an icon in her own right.
When she took to Twitter to release her tribute to fellow icon Michael Jackson, she did so with some guests that had fans freaking out.
Madonna enlisted the Korean boy band that’s taken the world by storm: BTS.
As i wait to finish my new record and think about the future, i can’t help thinking about the past and the amazing humans that came into my life………♥️ if we knew then what we know now. #history #gratitude #wisdom #hindsight pic.twitter.com/9BLV2kVQTv

The video shows Madonna and Jackson rushing out of an awards show as they are badgered by the press. Over it plays BTS and Steve Aoki’s new single “Waste it on Me.”
BTS—sometimes known as the Bangtan Boys—made Madonna’s tribute to the late pop legend Michael Jackson even more touching.
Fans of BTS and Madonna alike were living for it.
I can't believe madonna, michael jackson and bts really just breathed in the same tweet

While BTS has been in the game since before 2013, the band’s status skyrocketed to international stardom in 2017.
It looks like that’s only going to grow.

Now if Madonna’s use of the band in her tribute could only lead to a collab…
