When BTS posted a short video of them dancing to Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s single ‘Savage Love’ on TikTok, ARMY went into detective mode. Several moments later, they found out that Derulo’s Good Morning America performance video on YouTube, actually titled the song ‘Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat) [BTS Remix]’. Of course, this led to the fandom putting pieces together and finally arriving to the conclusion that the collab was real.
The guys later tweeted their TikTok video, not only officializing the remix but also giving us the date of its release. On October 2nd at 12 AM EST, we were blessed with the release of the song via different musical platforms.
The Power of ARMY!
The original track, released on July 2020, has over 1 billion combined streams worldwide. The new remix has currently obtained 75 number 1s on iTunes worldwide. It has also reached the first place in the Worldwide iTunes Song Chart. All of this has happening in less than 24 hours of the song’s release, thanks to the fandom’s determination to see their faves at the top!
The lyric video has surpassed 11 million views, 3 million likes, and more than 268 thousand comments.
We were taken away with Jungkook’s vocals. Like, how can anyone curse and sound so sweet? SUGA and j-hope’s Korean rap was also a highlight in the song, adding their ever-present swag. All of their voices compliment Derulo’s, making this song definitely a bop.
