K-Pop sensations BTS joined forces with The Chainsmokers to release their latest hit, ‘Best of Me.’ The track features an infectious beat produced by the American duo in their return to the pop sound.
After a busy Spring and Summer which saw the release of their first studio album and North American tour, The Chainsmokers returned to the studio to work with the South Korean pop group, BTS. Featuring a blend of English and Korean lyrics, the blend of the two styles complement each other extremely well to create a cohesive track. The beat’s bouncy breakdown and synths are very similar to The Chainsmokers’ earliest releases and remixes. With their first release since Memories… Do Not Open, fans will be glad to hear a new release from one of the most popular groups in electronic music.
During The Chainsmokers’ recent tour in Asia, BTS made an appearance at their Seoul stop, joining them on stage to hype up the crowd and later discussed the potential for joining forces in the future. Could The Chainsmokers help bring K-Pop into the mainstream music scene? With catchy tracks like “Best of Me,” BTS’s popularity will surely rise not only in the United States but around the world.
