It’s only been ten days since BTS went on hiatus, and Jungkook is already making waves on his own. He join forces with Charlie Puth in the music video for his latest single “Left and Right”.
BTS fans already had a feeling that a collaboration between Puth and Jungkook was brewing before they even announced it. The radio host JoJo Wright asked the singer if he was working with BTS in an interview, and Puth blew his cover by saying, “We legitimately have no idea the day it comes out.”
BTS and Puth have a shared history together because they previously performed at the Genie Music Awards in 2018. Jungkook was the first person that he thought of while working on this song – long before BTS members announced they were parting ways to focus on solo projects.
“He immediately came to mind because, and by the way, I didn’t even know they were going on a hiatus when I reached out to him and asked if he’d like to be part of it,” Puth told Z100 New York.
“Left and Right” is the latest song from the singer’s upcoming third studio album Charlie. It’s also set to feature songs “Light Switch” and “That’s Hilarious” and its release date is yet to be announced.
