In a recent interview with Billboard, BTS addressed their relationship with Steve Aoki and talked about his work on their newly-released album, Love Yourself: Tear.
“He seems like an amazing older brother,” Suga said, using the Korean word “hyung,” which implies a close relationship between the two parties. “And his passion for music was one of his many qualities that I respect.”
BTS’ J-Hope added that his favorite track on the album is the Aoki collaboration “The Truth Untold”. RM teased that the song wasn’t going to be EDM.
The song proved to be a ballad featuring the group’s vocalists, which is a complete turnaround from last year’s “Mic Drop (Remix)” feat. Desiigner. That track became the boy band’s first-ever song to break into the top 40 of the Hot 100 .
Love Yourself: Tear was released Friday (May 18). It’s the Korean septet’s third album, and first Korean release since last May.
