NLE Choppa recently released the song ‘Angel Pt. 1’ for the Fast X soundtrack. Notably, the track featured Jimin from K-pop boyband BTS, alongside JVKE, Muni Long and Kodak Black.
In a new interview with PopSugar, the rapper spoke about what the response to ‘Angel Pt. 1’ has been and his thoughts on the K-pop scene. “[BTS fans] have been loving it, and one of the things that I emphasize is how grateful I am to be a part of it,” he said. “I feel a lot of hip-hop artists don’t realize how beautiful the K-pop scene is.”
NLE Choppa then revealed that he had been “manifesting” to work with BTS “for a while”. He added: “To be able to work with just one of the guys from BTS – on the Fast and Furious soundtrack, something so big – I feel like it’s a beautiful thing, and it’s one of those things I prayed for.”
“So, every time you hear BTS in my mouth or Jimin in my mouth, there’s gonna be a thank you behind it, because I’m just grateful knowing how big that scene is and grateful to know how big the impact they have on K-pop is in general,” he continued.
Aside from ‘Angel Pt. 1’, the Fast X soundtrack also features the singles ‘Let’s Ride’ by YG, Ty Dolla $ign and Lambo4oe, and ‘Won’t Back Down’ by NBA YoungBoy, Bailey Zimmerman and Dermot Kennedy.
