When Big Hit Entertainment released an official teaser last week of Aoki’s remix version of ‘Mic Drop’ ARMY’s worldwide have been counting down until the release date – and it’s finally here!
After their amazing performance of ‘DNA’ at the American Music Awards (AMAs), BTS returned on November, 4 with their highly anticipated track.
The original version of the song is featured on their album, Love Yourself: Her and has a hip-hop/pop vibe. The album has quickly become the highest-charting Korean album ever since its release in September this year.
An alternative version of ‘Mic Drop’ was also released featuring a lead-in from the rapper Desiigner and is available to listen on Spotify.
The track is already the #1 trending YouTube video in the U.S and is the #2 trending video in the UK behind Jack Maynard’s explanation of why he left the jungle (blah, blah, blah).
Many K-Pop artists have entered into the iTunes Worldwide Albums Chart but have never landed at the #1 spot, but BTS have achieved this approximately 16 hours after it was released!
They have overtaken Post Malone, Ed Sheeran and the previous #1 holder Camila Cabello – Havana.
The music video has already been viewed 15 million times and ARMY fans everywhere aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.
Steve Aoki is a well-known DJ and electronic dance music (EDM) producer. He has collaborated with many other popular producers and artists such as Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, Iggy Azalea, Louis Tomlinson, and will.i.am to name just a few.
With BTS continuing to dominate the music scene with their energetic choreography and awesome collaborations, I am super excited to see what the future holds for them!
