Known to be a devoted BTS ARMY, wrestler-turned-actor John Cena has usually proudly spoken about his love for the septet. Taking it to his Instagram on Saturday, the actor shared the art work of ‘D-2’ mixtape.
During the promotions of his movie Dolittle again in January 2020, he appeared on James Corden’s The Late Late Show the place he spoke about how and why he turned a fan of the BTS. “So, I became interested in the fact that they are Korean pop band and they were the first Korean pop band to actually have connectivity throughout the world,” Cena stated. “They have fans throughout the world. So, being in live entertainment, I was like ‘Wow! That’s interesting. How do they do this?’ Then, I began to listen to their music and listened to the message they send to their fans. It’s about self-love, self-reflection, and being confident in yourself even though you may be different. Not only it’s the choreography, personalities and the whole entertainment that they put on which is spectacular, but young people are also listening to the music and they are sending a good message through their music. That’s really cool. When you have popularity and you choose your voice for something good, I think that’s a plus.”
During ‘Manic’ release, Halsey cited that Suga’s lyrical strategy in direction of his craft was what attracted her essentially the most after which they collaborated on her album. “I started exploring their solo music a little bit more, and with Suga, I got into ‘Agust D’, which is his solo project, and I was looking up lyric translations and I was blown away,” she stated throughout an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio. “I was like, ‘This stuff is so introspective’. The content is about mental health and his inner turmoil, and he’s a really quiet guy in real life, and I was just moved.”
“Suga probably was the last member of BTS that anyone would have expected me to collaborate with. He’s the one whose lyrical approach I felt the most connected to. I knew I had to have him be a part of this record. I knew that he would get what it feels like to be manic, to be introspective,” she additional stated.
