Cake wasting dillweed Steve Aoki has teamed up with the world’s hottest boyband BTS for a new track. Not just that, he’s convinced them to record their first song entirely in English with him. ‘Waste It On Me’ – not a reference to cake – is out now, and will feature on Aoki’s collaboration-heavy new album ‘Neon Future III’.

“We’re happy for this meaningful and heart-felt collaboration”, say BTS in a statement. “The song is just so amazing, we really enjoyed working on it. It’s our first song that is entirely in English. It was refreshing and fun to record the song. We hope this would be a good present for our fans”.

Aoki adds: “I’m so psyched to share this collaboration with one of the most exciting and inspiring group of guys I’ve met in the past few years. It’s an absolute honour to work with them once again on ‘Waste It On Me.’ I can’t wait for my fans to hear what’s in store for them next on this third instalment of ‘Neon Future'”.

The previous time he worked with BTS, which he referenced there, was when he remixed their track ‘Mic Drop’ last year.

‘Neon Future III’ is out on 9 Nov and ‘Waste It On Me’ is out at this very moment. Here’s the lyric video:

I mentioned above that ‘Neon Future III’, like all of Aoki’s albums, would be heavy on collaborations. Well, here’s the full tracklist, so you know I’m not lying. You can work out for yourself what the difference is between co-headlining, featuring and X-ing.
