International pop sensation Usher is making waves in the K-Pop world, joining forces with BTS’s beloved Jung Kook for an alternate version of “Standing Next to You.”
The remix, set to be released on December 1, was announced by Big Hit Music on Tuesday (November 28).
The original track is part of Jung Kook’s debut solo album, “Golden,” which features collaborations with several A-listers from the United States.
This collaboration comes as no surprise to keen followers, considering BTS’s previous nod to Usher in their song “Butter,” where they lyrically asserted, “Don’t need no Usher/ To remind me you got it bad.”
Jung Kook has been actively expanding his musical horizons, collaborating with artists like Jack Harlow and Latto.
“Three” with Jack Harlow and “Seven” with Latto both achieved significant success, breaking records on Spotify and topping the charts. The diverse collaborations showcase Jung Kook’s versatility and global appeal.
The K-Pop sensation’s new LP, where the mentioned songs are featured, also includes contributions from Major Lazer and DJ Snake.
The trend of K-Pop collaborations with American artists continues to gain momentum, with BTS members and other K-Pop stars joining forces with renowned musicians.
Earlier this year, J. Cole collaborated with J-Hope, another member of BTS, on the single “On the Street,” demonstrating the ongoing fusion of American hip-hop and K-Pop.
The global music landscape continues to evolve with these cross-cultural collaborations, creating exciting new opportunities for artists and fans alike.
