♫ Did you see my bag / It's hella trophies and it's hella thick / What you think 'bout that / I bet it got my haters hella sick ♫

If you don't know BTS by now, you're probably living under a rock — the international superstars just made their U.S. debut at the 2017 AMAs with their song "DNA" and I'm going out on a limb and saying they ~stole the stage~.


And ICYMI, they also snagged a spot in the 2018 Guinness World Records for "Most Twitter Engagements for a Music Group." With 10.4 million (and rapidly growing!) Twitter followers, that comes as no surprise.

And on top of that, the iconic Steve Aoki teased a collab with the boys back in May.

Mic Drop (Remix) is coming 🔥🔥 @steveaoki @LifeOfDesiigner

We paid our dues and patiently waited...and now 👏 it's 👏 finally 👏 here 👏 ! Aoki remixed a song off of their latest album, Love Yourself 承 'Her'. The track is called "Mic Drop" and Aoki made it even more addictive and killer, which tbh, is a huge feat.

Besides a different beat, the choruses have been swapped to all English lyrics and so have some of BTS member RM's lyrics in the second verse, like: "Baby watch your mouth / It come back around / Once upon a time / We learnt how to fly."

Inspired by Barack Obama's infamous mic drop at the 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner, "Mic Drop" is all about owning your accomplishments and brushing off the haters.

In an interview with Billboard, Steve Aoki revealed how much he respects the seven-piece act saying, “These guys are the geniuses. They're so creative on every level — on their dance, on their sound, on their style, their flow [...] They developed their own brand and they're global. It's incredible working with artists like that.”​


As an extra cherry on top, rapper Desiigner is also featured on the track, which you can listen to on Spotify or iTunes.

In an interview with Billboard he commented, “I add that extra energy to it...add that spice. That turned-up spice. All that extra.”

P.S. They performed/debuted the "Mic Drop" remix on The Ellen Show on November 21st in front of a live audience (the fourth K-pop act ever to book a U.S. daytime show appearance) and the episode will air on Monday, November 27th.
