Fans of South Korean music group BTS were surprised when they came across what appeared to be an unreleased song on the official Spotify profile of Suga, the rapper and songwriter of the global music sensation.

The surprise of the users was even greater when, when playing the song, they came across a version of an Indian chant known as Bhojpuri bhajan, in honor of the deity Shiva. Everything indicates that Suga’s profile on the streaming platform was hacked and, considering the type of song published, fans believe that the attack comes from India.
