“We’re happy for this meaningful and heartfelt collaboration,” BTS said in a press release. “The song is just so amazing, we really enjoyed working on it. It’s our first song that is entirely in English. It was refreshing and fun to record the song. We hope this would be a good present for our fans.”
“I’m so psyched to share this collaboration with one of the most exciting and inspiring group of guys I’ve met in the past few years,” added Aoki. “It’s an absolute honor to work with them once again on ‘Waste It on Me.’ I can’t wait for my fans to hear what’s in store for them next on this third installment of Neon Future.”
