Steve Aoki Joins K-Pop Sensation BTS On Third Collab ‘Waste It On Me’

Steve Aoki and K-pop superstars BTS have released their third collaboration following their acclaimed remix of the K-pop group’s ‘Mic Drop’ which also features rapper Desiigner, and an Aoki-produced ballad on their chart-topping ‘Love Yourself: Tear’.

The track ‘Waste It On Me’ combines the signature Aoki electronic music with the boyband’s disarming vocals.

With lyrics penned by Aoki and RM of BTS, the song is a call for a girl they love – who doesn’t believe in love herself – to waste her time on them.

‘Waste It On Me’ has reached number one on the global iTunes chart, a first for Steve, and is also the award-winning K-pop group’s first foray into a fully English single. Understandably their fans, the ARMY, have gone wild for the track.

The ballad is taken from the producer’s new album, ‘Neon Future III’ set for release on November 9th.
