Love Yourself: Her will be an extended play. BTS has produced four studio albums so far. According to reports, “Best of Me” will be an EDM dance track and we’re certain fans are going to love it.
While BTS remains extremely popular, there has been a bit of controversy surrounding The Chainsmokers lately. During a recent interview with Alex Pall, it was learned that Pall doesn’t bring his dog with him on the road. The interview was originally published on their Twitter page but has since been removed.
Pall stated that his dog isn’t well behaved enough to be brought on the road with him. He then added that if he could bring the dog on the road with him, he would; except for China.
The joke has sparked controversy as many felt that the remarks were racially and culturally insensitive.
It did not go unnoticed that Pall made the remark about China, an Asian country while simultaneously getting ready to promote “Best of Me” a song that is a collaboration with BTS who is from South Korea.
What do you think? Do you think people are reading too much into Pall’s statement? Is there a good reason to be offended by what he said? Are you looking forward to BTS’ new collaboration with The Chainsmokers?
