Two-time Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Steve Aoki embraces the holiday season by releasing a series of remixes for his Neon Future III single ‘Waste It On Me’, featuring BTS. Kicking off on 7 December with a remix from Slushii, December sees new dancefloor reworkings drop from Cheat Codes (today, 14 Dec), W&W (21 Dec) and Aoki himself on Christmas Day.
‘Waste It On Me’ is the third project Steve Aoki and BTS have collaborated on, following Aoki’s RIAA certified gold remix of BTS' ‘MIC Drop’ featuring Desiigner. After debuting on iTunes at #1 in more than 60 countries, as well as apparently becoming Twitter’s #1 worldwide trend, the track has officially crossed 100 million on-demand streams in less than one month.
Possibly set to be one of Aoki’s biggest singles ever, the track recently entered Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 Chart and hit #2 on the Dance/Electronic Chart. Accompanied by a music video, the Joe Hahn (Linkin Park)-directed visual features an all Asian-American cast including Ross Butler, Ken Jeong, Devon Aoki, Jamie Chung and Ben Baller, with cameos from Leonardo Nam, Vincent Rodriguez, Jimmy Yang, Jessica Lu, amongst others.
The video premiered on People Magazine and earned features from the likes of NME, Refinery 29, W Magazine, and Metro UK.
