Tiger JK Expresses Gratitude To BTS’s RM After “Timeless” Charts High Worldwide
Tiger JK recently expressed his feelings of gratitude towards BTS’s RM on the November 20 broadcast of SBS PowerFM’s “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show.”
During the show, Tiger JK talked about his latest album “X: Rebirth of Tiger JK,” his tenth and final album as Drunken Tiger. He stated, “This is Drunken Tiger’s final album, and the start of Tiger JK. I wanted to wrap things up in a cool way.”
The rapper then talked about the star-studded lineup of featuring artists on his album, such as BTS’s RM, SEVENTEEN’s Vernon, Dok2, Garion, Kim Jong Kook, SECKSKIES’s Eun Ji Won, Defconn, HaHa, and more. He commented, “Thanks to BTS’s RM, I was able to achieve No. 1 in the United States and No. 3 worldwide.” Previously, the two artists had taken over iTunes charts all around the world with their collaboration track “Timeless.”
He also added, “I wanted to produce songs that are irrelevant to the charts. [Drunken Tiger] fans don’t think it’s cool to be on the charts. They actually think that it’s cooler if you’re not tied down to [the charts].”
However, Tiger JK had the set exploding in laughter when he continued, “But as soon as my latest song was released, it didn’t rise on the domestic music charts, so I was a little sad.”
On November 14, Tiger JK released “X: Rebirth of Tiger JK,” which consists of two CDs, 24 tracks, and six skits. The album also covers a range of genres such as boom bap, jazz, EDM, reggae, and more.
