Korean Boy Band BTS Just Collaborated With Openly Gay Artist MNEK
While we’re still holding out hope on that collaboration project between Korean boy band BTS and singer Troye Sivan, we’re happy to find out that the group has already worked with another gay singer.
BTS’s latest album Love Yourself: Tear is out and many were delightfully surprised to find out that a song from their album was created with the help of singer/songwriter MNEK.
Though, if you’re a fan or at least aware of MNEK’s work, you wouldn’t be totally surprised. Before he went off to make music for himself, MNEK had written songs for famous singers like Madonna and Beyoncé.
It was music producer lophiile that confirmed the collaboration on Twitter. In his tweet, lophiile said, “Me & the homie MNEK did a tune for BTS.”
MNEK then shared his thoughts on the collaboration on Twitter by saying, “The BTS fans [nicknamed ARMYs] have been so fucking nice! Thank yooooou. Look fwd to you all hearing the song we wrote.”
While Kpop has steadily become a sensation online in the past few decades, it was boy band BTS that first broke into the American music industry. Last year, the band was invited to several awards shows and concerts such as the New Years Eve event in New York City.
Now, their latest album has already reached number one on the US music charts.
If you want to list to the song titled “Paradise” or “낙원,” you can do so down below.
