The release of ‘Left and Right’ comes just a week after the duo teased the song on TikTok, following a series of rumours that the American singer-songwriter was going to collaborate with the K-pop boyband.
“Memories follow me left and right / I can feel you over here, I can feel you over here / You take up every corner of my mind,” Puth and Jungkook sing on the chorus. ‘Left and Right’ was first released by Puth on TikTok in February 2022 as a solo song.
Back in 2018, Jungkook had joined Puth on stage for a performance of his hit single ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ at the MGA Awards in Incheon, Korea. Later that night, Puth returned the favour by joining the septet to perform a piano version of their song ‘Fake Love’.
In other BTS collaboration news, Snoop Dogg previously revealed that he had recorded verses for an as-yet-unnamed track with BTS. He added that they have been sent over to the boyband, but had no other information at hand. “You gotta talk to [BTS] but my parts are in,” he shared.
‘Psy 9th’ also features several other collaborations, including ‘Celeb’ with Bae Suzy, ‘Happier’ featuring K-R&B singer Crush, and a remake of Jermaine Jackson and Pia Zadora’s 1984 hit single ‘When The Rain Begins To Fall’ with MAMAMOO member Hwasa. Other features include Epik High‘s Tablo, Heize, Sung Si-kyung and Jessi.
