Probably this song will be a full English. So, we are going to hear Namjoon, Hoseok, and Yoongi rap in English!!! Again, there's a BIG possibility that our rapline will rap in English! THEY WILL PROBABLY RAP IN ENGLIIIIIISH! pic.twitter.com/CLSUKC3byq
This isn’t the first time Aoki has worked with BTS. The DJ remixed BTS’s song “Mic Drop” in 2017 which was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, the first time a Korean music group received such recognition, according to Billboard.
BTS is the first K-pop group to reach the top 10 of the Billboard 200 Chart. The group sold out its first U.S. stadium show at New York’s Citi Field within minutes with over 5 million subscribers on its official YouTube channel BANGTANTV.
“Waste It On Me” will be featured on Aoki’s new album Neon Future III, which drops on Nov. 9.
