STEVE AOKI On New BTS Collab Going No. 1 Worldwide: "It's Really A Powerful Time For Asian People"
Karen Jane Ng
Steve Aoki's third collaboration with BTS, "Waste It On Me", is now No. 1 in iTunes Worldwide! That's what you get when you have the best fans and ARMY in the world!
The DJ-producer is going wild over its success since it's his first time to top the charts despite many other collabs. "Number one around the world. I cannot believe it dude," Steve told TMZ. "It’s so crazy, it’s literally the craziest day ever. First number one in the US, around the world obviously.’
For Steve, this is more than just him and BTS getting recognized but for all the less-represented Asians. "It’s so exciting for all the Asians out here that don’t have the role models or people that are touching the world. It’s really a powerful time for Asian people and it’s pretty awesome."
"Waste It On Me" is off Steve's album Neon Future III and BTS' first all-English single. Congratulations, guys! We'll wait for Round 4.
