Benny Blanco is famous for working with pop music stars like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Kesha and more – but his latest track is possibly his most epic collaboration yet. On Friday (August 5) at midnight, the 34-year-old super-producer dropped “Bad Decisions,” the lead single from his upcoming album, and an accompanying music video featuring two of the world’s biggest names: BTS‘ Jin, Jimin, V and Jung Kook and Snoop Dogg.
The guys first started teasing the new track in July, releasing a series of hilarious videos in which Blanco tries his best to fit in with BTS. IN one, he video chats Jin, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook and asks them if he can join the band. “No,” the BTS members immediately say in unison, before Jimin offers a compromise: “But we can make a song together.”
“Let’s make the best song in the whole world,” Blanco replies. “Let’s go!”
The guys also released a map trailer for the “Bad Decisions” music video ahead of its release, where the “Eastside” artist identifies himself as another Jimin in an attempt to make his boy band dreams come true. “This year they’re back,” says a dramatic voice over, stumbling slightly as the trailer cuts to Blanco pretending to be Jimin. “Jin, V, Jung Kook, Jimin—Jimin? — Snoop. “Bad decisions.”
Although official promotions for the new song only began in recent weeks, Snoop Dogg has promised a collaboration between him and BTS for months. In January, the rapper revealed on a podcast that BTS had reached out to him with the hopes of working together, and in March he said their partnership was “official like a judge with a whistle.”
“I make good music. They make good music,” Snoop said of the K-Pop phenomenon at the time. “And we end up doing this. That’s what it’s always about, bringing our worlds together.”
