Variety mentions that 'Boy With Luv' is a reference to BTS' 2014 song 'Boy in Luv' and the video also pays tribute to Gene Kelly's musical Singin' in the Rain. The single is a part of the band's new album Map of the Soul: Persona and also features a collaboration with Ed Sheeran.

The video shows the band dancing in a diner and against many colourful, brightly-lit backdrops. Halsey also dances alongside RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin, and Jungkook towards the end. In a recent tweet, she admitted that she was nervous because none of her own music videos never featured choreographed dance sequences.

According to Consequence of SoundMap of the Soul: Persona has been described as "a nod to the band’s past while showcasing their maturity and newfound understanding of love and the ever-widening world around them. The tracks have a clear message: finding joy in love and reaching out to the world."
