NLE Choppa’s song ‘Angel Pt. 1’ was recently released for the Fast X soundtrack. The track featured Jimin from the K-pop boyband BTS, as well as JVKE, Muni Long, and Kodak Black.
In a new interview with PopSugar, the rapper discussed the reaction to ‘Angel Pt. 1’ and his thoughts on the K-pop scene. “[BTS fans] have been loving it, and one of the things that I emphasise is how grateful I am to be a part of it,” he said. “I feel like a lot of hip-hop artists don’t realise how beautiful the K-pop scene is.”
NLE Choppa then revealed that he had been “manifesting” his desire to work with BTS for “quite some time.” He went on to say, “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 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 in general,” he added.
The Fast X soundtrack also includes 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, in addition to ‘Angel Pt. 1’.
