V Said He Would ‘Of Course’ Collaborate With Jimin Again, Following the Success of BTS’ ‘Friends’
There are few friends quite like that of the K-pop idols V and Jimin. These two grew up together and although they fight like brothers, they’re family. Would V and Jimin ever collaborate on another song? Here’s what these BTS singers said about their subunit and the Map of the Soul: 7 song, “Friends.”
Jimin and V released a song together for ‘Map of the Soul: 7,’ titled ‘Friends’
Although there are seven members in BTS, there’s only one kind and sweet Jimin and hilarious and unique V. These two are singers in the K-pop group, who eventually joined forces for the album Map of the Soul: 7. There, they performed the song titled “Friends,” forming a subunit named the “95s.”
This song mentioned the journey of these two idols, from when they went to school together to when they had an argument about dumplings, to the close, soulmate-like relationship they have today.
“I liked it because it wasn’t predictable, it was so original,” V said. The two further elaborated on their stylistic choices during one video for BTS’ YouTube Channel, even sharing their thoughts on future collaborations as the “95s” subunit.
Would V and Jimin release a song together again?
Although nothing has been confirmed by this K-pop group, Jimin and V both mentioned collaborating in the future. It’s totally a possibility, especially due to the success of “Friends.” However, V still rated it a 30, even though the other BTS subunits rated their respective songs 100 on a scale of 100.
“For us, we must say that ‘even a song like this is worth 30 points’ so when we release more songs they’ll be better than this one,” V said jokingly. Jimin clapped as a response, but he took V’s answer one step further.
“Does that mean you’ll collaborate with me again,” Jimin asked, to which V responded, “of course.” Jimin continued, saying, “Do it. Collaborate. You always say you will, but you never do.”
“I’ll try my best,” V said, solidifying his score of 30.
V and Jimin both have solo songs on other BTS albums
The idol, V, has been considerably busy, though. Some believe V’s first mixtape is on the way, although he’s already released a few songs as a solo artist.
That includes “Winter Bear,” a song written and performed entirely in English, his second language. Aside from their duet on “Friends,” both V and Jimin have their own solo songs with BTS. For V, that includes “Singularity” off of Love Yourself: Answer.
For Jimin that means “Serendipity” off of Love Yourself: Answer. Music by BTS, including the single “Stay Gold” and Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
