The music video for Steve Aoki and BTS' "Waste It On Me" is finally out featuring an all-Asian cast!

Steve shared his thoughts on giving fellow Asians a platform of recognition through the music video. "When Waste it On Me came out and from the get go had so much support from around the world that’s when I realized that this song represents more than just me and BTS," he wrote on Instagram. "It’s bigger than music and we hope to show other Asians they are also a part of the global commercial musical landscape."

Not only does the MV include Asian actors like Ken Jeong, Ross Butler, Jamie Chung, Leonardo Nam, and Ben Baller, it was also directed by an Asian filmmaker! WE STAN.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

When Waste it On Me came out and from the get go had so much support from around the world that’s when I realized that this song represents more than just me and bts. It’s bigger than music and we hope to show other asians they are also a part of the global commercial musical landscape. Because of how i felt about the asian footprint in music culture i wanted to make the music video to reflect an entirely asian cast with an asian director. The music video tells the story of waste it on me in an incredibly funny witty and clever manner. Please watch it and hope u enjoy our music video. (Photographed just some of the cast and crew from the video. Thanks to all the amazing actors and filmmakers who made this happen!)
