SINGAPORE - American singer Alicia Keys' soulful piano rendition of K-pop group BTS song Life Goes On has earned the praise of both the band and fans alike.

In a video that she tweeted on Thursday (Nov 26), Keys says, "I bet you all didn't think I would play this one .... tell me if you know it" before launching into a 50-second English cover of the chorus of the superstar group's latest single.

The group's official Twitter handle retweeted her video with the caption "Thank you ... such a big honour".
