PSY has shared the story of how his successful partnership with BTS’ Suga came about!
On April 29, PSY made its long-awaited return with the new album “PSY 9th” and the title track “That That”, which was produced by Suga and also featured him as an artist. As soon as it dropped, the song shot to the top of the charts both in Korea and around the world.
On the April 30 episode of JTBC’s “Knowing Bros” (“Ask Us Anything”), PSY shared how he and Suga ended up working together on the song, which was unreleased at the time of filming.
“One day I got a text from an unknown number,” PSY began. “It said, ‘Hello, this is Suga. I’d like to talk to you about something.’ So we met.”
†[Suga] is of course a great artist, but he is also very good at writing music,” continued PSY. “He has previously produced songs for IU and Heize. So he had produced a lot of songs for other stars before and he told me he wanted to finish his production project by giving me a song.”
“Then he brought me the instrumental [‘That That’]PSY revealed. “Suga is the one who produced that beat. He asked me, “Can you sing this song?” and I said, ‘It shouldn’t even be this. What wouldn’t I want to sing? [if you produced it]† I participate!'”
He continued: “So we kept talking back and forth and working on the song together, and eventually he played on the song. I really want to take this opportunity to say thank you to him.”
