Japanese-American singer-songwriter Umi is back with a new single, this time featuring BTS‘ V. Released today (December 30, PH time), the track, titled “wherever u r” comes as “a gift from Umi and Tae to you.”

Marking the pair’s first official collaboration, Umi and V — who is also known as Kim Taehyung — had been teasing the single’s release throughout the last couple of weeks, unveiling snippets of the soulful track online. The two artists have also frequently shared their admiration for the other’s music, with Umi even sharing her renditions of V’s “Love Me Again” and “Slow Dancing”.

This comes as Umi’s latest single following “why dont we go” and “happy im”. In 2023, the R&B singer embarked on her first tour around Asia, which saw stops in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Seoul, in support of her album Forest In The City. Umi also recently performed in Manila as part of Insignia’s Concert Series.

V most recently made his solo debut with his EP, Layover which comprises the tracks “Love Me Again”, “Rainy Days”, and more. The singer is currently fulfilling his mandatory military service, enlisting earlier this December alongside fellow BTS members RM, Jungkook, and Jimin.
