BTS’ Comments About Lizzo Are So Powerful That Fans Are Begging For a Collaboration Right Now
BTS fans are still reeling from the magical “Make It Right” collaboration with Lauv. But, it seems ARMY won’t get a chance to rest anytime soon. On Friday, Oct. 18, the seven members — including RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook — gushed over their current favorite artists during their radio interview circuit. To everyone’s delight, BTS mentioned the legendary Lizzo and even hinted they would be up to collaborate. So naturally, fans went online to express just how much they’re dying to make the BTS x Lizzo collab happen.
BTS says they would be down to collaborate with Lizzo
When speaking with Syke & MJ In The Morning on Oct. 18, BTS delved into their favorite music artists. And the K-pop group expressed their love for a variety of artists, such as Summer Walker, Chance the Rapper, Billie Marten, and Lizzo.
Following the mentions, the Long Island radio host admitted they are pushing for a BTS x Lizzo collaboration in 2020. “Do you think that maybe we can pull that off?” the host asked.
And it seems like there is a possibility in the future. “Of course, c’mon,” RM replied.
RM gushes over the ‘Cuz I Love You’ album
Now, BTS’ statements about Lizzo didn’t stop there. RM also gushed about his admiration for Lizzo’s music when speaking with iHeartRadio.
“I’m into Lizzo so much and her album is so amazing,” RM said.
Meanwhile, during an interview with Radio.com, the host asked the band about their favorite Lizzo song. And to no one’s surprise, RM jumped right in.
“Of course, ‘Truth Hurts,'” the BTS leader said.
RM also revealed Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You” album gives the group “power and energy” when they work out. And quite frankly, we don’t think we’ve related to the BTS members more than this moment.
“We listen to her whole album while [exercizing],” RM revealed. “It’s one of the best albums for fitness. We get power and energy. Please try it while you’re on the treadmill — listen to the album ‘Cuz I Love You,’ and you could do it for an hour.” Love it.
Lizzo also wants to collab with BTS
Back in August, the “Juice” singer had the best reaction to “Boy With Luv” during an interview with CBC Music, where she called the song “beyond a jam.” Lizzo also revealed she would like to collaborate with the K-pop group.
“If I could collaborate with BTS, I mean, that sounds fun. I don’t know if I could make it through the studio session without having sex with all of them,” she joked. But, she quickly added, “I’m just kidding. That was a terrible thing to say, I’m sorry mom.”
Then on Oct. 7, Lizzo confirmed her eagerness to work with BTS. When a fan asked if she would collab with the band, Lizzo simply replied, “Yes please.”
Now, after all the radio interviews flooded the internet, the “Tempo” songstress also thanked the seven members for their mentions. “OMG [BTS] WORKS OUT TO MY ALBUM,” she wrote on Twitter. “ILY #BTS S/O #BTSARMY FOR YALL SUPPORT.”
Both artists will perform in Los Angeles for the 2019 Jingle Ball and fans are demanding a collab
In case you don’t remember, the stars aligned for both BTS and Lizzo to perform at the 2019 Jingle Ball in Los Angeles on Dec. 6. And now, with both artists confirming their wishes to work together, it seems fans are dying to see a collaboration in the near future.
“Hear me out,” a fan wrote to Lizzo on Twitter. “Do a track with them, or a remix with rm, and link up at jingle ball. Sounds good?”
Meanwhile, other fans speculated the concept for the potential collaboration, given both artists are known for being outspoken about self-love.
“BTS and LIZZO need to know that they are this generation’s representative artists. And what a representation,” a fan shared. “Can’t wait to witness how y’all will change the world!”
In all honesty, Lizzo’s persona is the epitome of BTS’ Love Yourself concept. So of course, fans are itching to see a potential collaboration between the two artists. Who knows? They could potentially get the ball rolling once Jingle Ball rolls around in December. So stay tuned.
