Let’s take a look at how Suga’s Burn it feat. Max was made!
On May 28, BTS’s Suga came on a live stream and spent two hours chatting with fans about his second mixtape D-2. He talked about the process for each of the ten tracks and also revealed fun stories and facts about the whole journey for his second release. For the song “Burn It” feat. MAX, Suga revealed how happy he was with the final product.
Burn It” was actually written in early 2018, around the same time he wrote the song “Seesaw.” The verse and melody for “Burn It” was finished from the beginning and was just waiting for the right time to release it. He stated that he specifically wanted an American singer to be featured in the song so that the melody line would sound better. He felt that his good friend MAX’s vocals were the perfect fit and thus, the collab between Suga and MAX had done.
The original version of the song was a low octave but they later changed it to three octaves higher than the original. The track went through a total of five mixing edits before it was complete.
He gave a huge thank you to MAX for putting in his best efforts for the song and complimented MAX on his amazing vocals. Suga also revealed that he watched MAX’s acoustic version of his song and was surprised at how well he pronounced the Korean words in the chorus.
Suga’s favorite line in Burn it was:
(Am I being pressured to passion)
(Be cautious of the word ‘original intention’) Don’t be afraid
This line feels like it is expressing how Suga feels about his career in the music industry and how he tries to remember where he came from.
