The BTS music band’s collaboration with Benny Blanco and Snoop Dog ‘Bad Decisions’ smashed on domestic online music sites right after its release on 5th August by going beyond 10 million views on YouTube. Currently ranks number one in at least 74 different regions counting America, Canada, Italy, Sweden, and Norway.
All about BTS:
BTS is originally a hip-hop group, a septet—consisting of members Jin (Kim Seok-jin), Suga, J-Hope (Jung Ho-Seok), RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook—co-writes and co-produces much of their material. Their musical style has evolved to incorporate a wide range of genres; their lyrics have often discussed mental health, the troubles of school-age youth and coming of age, loss, the journey towards self-love, and individualism. Their work also frequently references literature, philosophy & psychological concepts, and includes an alternate universe storyline.
Snoop wasn’t aware of how big the South Korean group was, and he had to ask his nephew for more information about them. “[He] showed me five motherfuckers who look like the Asian New Edition,” says Snoop. “I said okay.”
Earlier this year in March, speaking with The AV Club, Snoop Dogg said, “The BTS experience you keep talking about. I’m going to let them tell you about it. It’s official like a referee with a whistle. I love that entertainment world. It’s good music. It’s [a] vibe. I make good music. They make good music. And we end up doing this. This is what it’s always about, bringing our worlds together.
In the ‘Bad Decisions’ music video Benny Blanco plays an enthusiastic ARMY. The video starts with a view of his purple-themed room decorated with posters, cutouts, and cushions of the BTS members. Benny dances to BTS track ‘Dynamite’, bakes a purple cake and designs a placard with cutouts of BTS members. The video continues to show ’13 hours until the BTS concert’ for which Benny excitedly gets ready to attend the much-awaited BTS concert, He then wears a similar outfit worn by Jimin in Dynamite as he heads to the concert. However, he faces obstacles as the cake gets ruined, he gets stuck in a traffic jam, and has to run to the concert only to face another blow–he is at the venue a day early. The music video ends with him waiting outside the venue gate for the next day and is told that he has made a Bad Decision.
