Suga of BTS talked about co-producing the lead track for Psy’s ninth studio album.
In a teaser trailer for the song “That That,” due out Friday, the artist admitted he was really nervous working with the well-respected musician who is also 16 years his senior.
But Psy said he did not feel the age difference.
“There was this intimate feeling not as an endearing junior but like a real friend,” he said. Suga concurred, adding it was like working with a friend from childhood, and that the two became as close as best friends.
Psy will make a comeback to the scene with an LP that consists of 12 tracks and features Sung Sikyung, Jessi, Hwasa of Mamamoo and Tablo of Epik High.
