TXT were also revealed to have met with American record producer and songwriter Tommy Brown, also known as TBHits, sparking rumours of a possible collaboration between him, the group and Marshmello.
Notably, Brown has worked with several K-pop stars throughout his career including MONSTA X, BLACKPINK and TWICE. More recently, he had produced tracks ‘Don Quixote’ and ‘World’ for fellow HYBE act SEVENTEEN’s ‘Face The Sun’ studio album and its re-release ‘Sector 17’.
If a collaboration is indeed in the works, it will follow TXT’s July single ‘Valley of Lies’ with rapper and singer iann dior, who later joined the group at their ‘Act: Love Sick’ concert in Los Angeles, as well as their Lollapalooza set to perform the song live.
In addition to their song with dior, TXT members Yeonjun and Taehyun also featured on American singer-songwriter Salem Ilese’s February single ‘PS5’ from her ‘Unsponsored Content’ EP. Prior to this, Ilese had co-written TXT’s viral 2021 track ‘Anti-Romantic’ from their sophomore studio album ‘The Chaos Chapter: Freeze’
