Charlie Puth and BTS collaboration is finally happening! During a recent interview with KIIS FM at the 2022 iHeartRadio Wango Tango Festival in Los Angeles, Chalie Puth appeared to confirm that he’s working with the Kpop group made up of RM, Jimin, Suga, V, Jin and Jungkook. After he was told about the ongoing chatter about a collaboration to come between him and BTS, the singer seemed to confirm the speculation while admitting he doesn’t know much.
Puth said, “I heard that too, and everybody in my camp doesn’t know the day it comes out.” However, he then hinted at knowing more than he’ll publicly share while saying, “We legitimately have no idea of the day it comes out,” added Puth. “We do, but like we just figured it out.” Later, when the singer was directly asked that ‘there is a collab,’ Puth, who first respond with silence then said, “We will leave that at that, sort of top-secret.”
However, neither Puth nor BTS has officially announced a collaboration, but if they do work together, it won’t be their first time crossing paths professionally. During the 2018 MGA Awards in Incheon, Korea, the group appeared onstage alongside Puth to perform “See You Again,” “We Don’t Talk Anymore” and “Fake Love.” Both stars are currently preparing to release new projects, with Puth gearing up to drop his third studio album, Charlie, which doesn’t yet have a release date, and BTS readying their forthcoming anthology album, Proof, which comes out June 10.
In April, Snoop Dogg revealed he’s also working on a collaboration with BTS and said he’s already recorded his vocal parts. “You gotta talk to them, but my parts are in,” Snoop, 50, told The Buzz host Danielle DeLaite on the American Song Contest red carpet in an interview posted to the outlet’s YouTube channel on April 26. The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” performer first spoke of the collaboration during a Mogul Talk chat on Clubhouse in February, though it wasn’t yet set in stone.
