IU and Suga’s Collaboration…
On May 2, Livestream, RM became the guest on Suga’s Show and they both talked on various topics, including Suga’s upcoming collaboration with IU. Suga assisted the creation, produced, and features on her upcoming single, “Eight,” which is set to be released on May 6.
According to Soompi’s Translation, RM said,
“I’ve heard it! It’s really good. It’s a song to listen to while driving. I don’t have my driver’s license, but as soon as I heard it, I thought it was a perfect driving song. I think that many people will listen to it for a long time.”
Suga also loves this song and said that:
“I like it. The production process was very smooth so there weren’t a lot of back-and-forths. I wrote the beat and the melody came quickly after that. After I finished working on it, I listened to it a lot. After I finish working on a song, it’s released, I don’t usually listen to it. Because I can only hear the things that I wish I could do better. The moment it leaves my hands, I think the song belongs to the listeners.”
Suga’s New Mixtape…
Suga also chatted about the plans for his upcoming mixtape plans. His last and first mixtape “Agust D” containing 10 songs from ‘Dt Suga’ to ‘Agust D’, ‘Give it to me’, ‘Tony Montana’ and ‘So far away’ was released on SoundCloud back in 2016 and was well received by fans all over the world.
Regarding his next mixtape, Suga shared that
“(The second mixtape) will come out when it’s finished. I am working on it. If I talk a little about the behind-the-scenes process, it was supposed to release in September 2019. But when I heard it, I wasn’t satisfied. I turned it over completely and I’m working hard on it now. Don’t be in too much of a hurry for it.”
“The mixtape was delayed due to various factors, including both external factors and Suga’s personal satisfaction. From a results perspective, I am anticipating that the result will be closer to perfect.”
About Strawberry Farm…
RM told that all OT7 went to the strawberry farm together when a fan asked.
“We went to the strawberry farm altogether. Actually, Jin loves the strawberry and often shares it with us We are so accustomed to it. In-fact I was not sure whether we picked the right strawberries.” Suga added: Maybe the farmer would be angry at us. Because we are not familiar with that. RM continued: “I want to apologize if you’re listening to it. Because we are not farmers.”
Since then, Suga and RM read the story of ‘Byeoljubujeon‘ (a Korean folk tale) and added a lot of fun on Suga’s Honey FM 06.13.
