BTS & Charlie Puth To Showcase Special Collaboration Exclusively At 2018 MBC Plus X Genie Music Awards
Korean pop sensation BTS is doing another collaboration with an American artist. A few days after American music producer/DJ Steve Aoki released his collaboration with BTS, another team up is coming up for the K-pop group. This time around it will be Charlie Puth.
BTS and Puth will be doing a special collaboration that will be shown at the 2018 MBC Plus X Genie Music Awards next week. The organizers of the music award show announced that the K-pop act and Puth would be performing together at the show.
"The group BTS and the American singer-songwriter Charlie Puth are preparing to stage a collaboration performance at the 2018 MGA," a representative stated.
The "One Call Away" hitmaker is one of several artists who has expressed interest in working with BTS. The septet and Puth previously had an exchange of tweets, showing their love to the music of each other. Last year, Puth also asked the "IDOL" hitmakers to check their private messages on Twitter. This sparked speculations that they are possibly doing a song together.
Aside from BTS and Charlie Puth, other confirmed attendees at the MGA are TWICE, Wanna One, and more. The voting for the different categories of the 2018 MBC Plus X Genie Music Awards is still open. It will run until October 31. You still cast your vote here. The 2018 MBC Plus X Genie Music Awards will be held on November 6 at the Namdong Gymnasium in Incheon.
