Steve Aoki and BTS have worked together before
Aoki and BTS have worked together on three different songs. In October 2018, Aoki released the EDM track, “Waste It on Me.” The song features RM, Jimin, and Jungkook of BTS. While “Waste It on Me” is Aoki’s song that features BTS, it deviates from BTS’s normal music and is sung entirely in English.
BTS released Love Yourself: Tear in May 2018. The song “The Truth Untold” is a piano ballad that features BTS’s vocal line, Jungkook, Jimin, V, and Jin. The song is also a collaboration with Aoki.
The most popular collaboration between Aoki and BTS is “Mic Drop.” BTS released the original version of the song with their album Love Yourself: Her in September 2017. Aoki produced a remix of the song featuring Desiigner which reached the No.1 spot on the U.S. iTunes chart.
“Mic Drop” became BTS’s first song to debut on the U.S. Billboard Top 40 at No. 28. BTS became the first Korean group to reach the No.1 spot on the U.S. iTunes chart. The song was also certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
