Fans of both Lavigne and TXT are now asking for the musicians to collaborate, following their online interaction. One such fan also said that if the singers ended up working together, it would “be the death of me”.

Lavigne and Hueningkai are the latest Western and K-pop artists to interact on Twitter. Earlier this month, Charli XCX reached out to K-pop idol and SEVENTEEN member Vernon about a possible collaboration.
Meanwhile, K-pop juggernauts BTS and British rock band Coldplay previously released the collab ‘My Universe’ in September 2021. The song was the second single from Coldplay’s studio album ‘Music Of The Spheres’ following their hit comeback song ‘Higher Power‘.
In other TXT news, member Yeonjun recently tested positive for COVID-19. His label Big Hit Music confirmed the news in a statement posted to the group’s Weverse page yesterday (February 17).
“Yeonjun completed two rounds of COVID-19 vaccinations, and is not presenting any extraordinary symptoms other than a mild fever and sore throat,” wrote Big Hit Music, as translated by Soompi.
