Internationally renowned K-pop boy band BTS has teamed up with the American musician, DJ and music producer Steve Aoki on his latest song.
Aoki, 40, revealed news of the collaboration in a Tweet on Wednesday, saying that the seven-member band had performed on the song, Waste It On Me, which was released on Thursday.
The song will be included in Aoki’s album “Neon Future III”.
The partnership comes after two earlier collaborations between Aoki and BTS, which is enjoying huge global success after topping the US Billboard album chart twice this year.
The group returned to South Korea this week after a series of sell-out concerts in North America and Europe, and in November will perform concerts in Japan.
Last November, the band and Aoki worked on a remixed version of the group's hit MIC Drop.
This remained on the Billboard main single “Hot 100” chart for 10 weeks.
Aoki also worked with the group in May on the song The Truth Untold from the album “LOVE YOURSELF: Tear”.
Waste It On Me will be the group’s first song since the release of RM’s solo track Mono on Monday and the group's Billboard 200 chart topping compilation album, “LOVE YOURSELF: Answer”.
