The K-Pop world is buzzing with excitement as new clues suggest that BTS Jungkook may be collaborating with global superstar Justin Bieber on a new song. Here’s what we know so far about this possible collaboration and why fans are hyped for it.
“This Is A BIG One”: The Jungkook x Bieber Collab?
Earlier this year, it was rumored that Justin Bieber will soon be releasing a collab single with two big names in the K-Pop industry. Jungkook was heavily rumored to be one of the featured artists for this single and now it seems it may be true after all. On April 10th, Bang Si Hyuk, the founder and CEO of HYBE (formerly Big Hit Entertainment), posted a photo on his Instagram account along with the caption, “With #JK and @thisiswatt Thank you, @scooterbraun You made this! #bighitmusic #sbproject #hybeamerica #HYBE”
A photo has been released showing Jungkook linking arms with Bang Si Hyuk and renowned American producer and singer-songwriter, Andrew Watt. Jungkook had departed for Los Angeles, USA via Incheon International Airport in August. Andrew Watt is well-known for his collaborations with top musicians such as Maroon 5, Post Malone, Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus, and Ozzy Osbourne, and he was awarded two Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album and Best Metal Performance, at the 65th Grammy Awards in February. Fans of Jungkook are eagerly anticipating the release of his first solo album following this encounter with Bang Si Hyuk and Andrew Watt.
Another photo surfaced showing Jungkook alongside Scooter Braun, Bang Si-Hyuk, Andrew Watt, and Cirkut. Braun, who manages Justin Bieber and HYBE America, posted the photo with the caption “This is a BIG one.” Andrew Watt is set to co-produce Bieber’s upcoming album, which is scheduled for release by the end of this year. Fans have also pointed out that the photo appears to have been taken at Neon Sound, a recording studio in LA where Bieber was seen just a few days prior.
All these hints point to the possibility that Jungkook and Bieber are working on a song together, which would be a dream come true for many fans of both artists. Jungkook has expressed his admiration for Bieber several times in the past, covering some of his songs like “Nothing Like Us” and “2U”. He also received a birthday message from Bieber in 2019, which made him very happy. Bieber has also shown his support for BTS and their music, praising them for their achievements and talent.
A collaboration between Jungkook and Bieber would be a huge milestone for both artists and their fandoms. It would also showcase the power and influence of K-Pop in the global music scene. Fans are eagerly waiting for more updates on this potential project and hoping that it will be released soon.
