A Kpop star shared his love of a song from Love, Simon and the internet was better for it.
Korean boyband BTS (or Bangtan Boys) had a fantastic 2017. The group gained international success and performed on American talk shows, awards ceremonies like the American Music Awards, and even the “New Year’s Rocking Eve 2018” program. All of that hype and excitement earned the group the title of the most tweeted celebrity in 2017, and it looks like that title is holding strong.
BTS’s leader and main rapper RM (born Kim Namjoon) tweeted out a song recommendation on Monday (April 15).
RM shared a screenshot of Troye Sivan’s “Strawberries and Cigarettes” from the soundtrack to Love, Simon. While RM’s“It’s great” caption was simple and short, his fans soon swarmed the tweet with joy and excitement.
As GayStarNews reports, the tweet has earned a large response. At the time of this article’s posting, the tweet has about 493,000 likes, 181.9 thousand retweets, and 211,000 comments.
On top of that, a collaboration between BTS and Troye Sivan might be one step closer to happening.
BTS has already collaborated with Desiigner, Steve Aoki, and Fall Out Boy, so why not Sivan? Plus, Sivan has already expressed interest in creating a song with the boyband. Earlier this year, he said, “That would be so fun.”
“I fell way down watching all their music videos,’ he said. ‘They’ve been so nice to me since day one, so I just want to meet them and say thank you. It’s a world I’ve yet to fully delve into and understand, so I’m just completely curious about the whole thing.”
With Sivan showing interest in a collaboration and now RM showing interest in Sivan’s music, we just need their record companies to connect the dots. Our fingers are crossed.
