The BTS and Snoop Dogg collaboration you’ve been waiting for is finally here, and it’s all thanks to Benny Blanco! The artists dropped one of the biggest collaborations of the summer, “Bad Decisions,” on Aug. 5. The uptempo, fun-filled, guitar-heavy track about making ill-advised choices with the person you love will be a perfect addition to every ARMY’s summer playlist.
While the “Bad Decisions” music video, which was released alongside the single, doesn’t physically feature BTS, they were there in spirit. Throughout the video, Blanco dresses up like “Dynamite”-era Jimin, makes glittery BTS posters, and even bakes a purple BTS cake in preparation for attending their concert. Of course, Blanco has his ARMY bomb in hand, proving that, even if he isn’t a bonafide ARMY in real life, he’s a big enough fan to have done some legit research on what preparing for a BTS concert (and fighting the traffic on the way to the venue) is really like.
Blanco — the producer behind hits like Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself,” Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger,” and Juice Wrld’s “Graduation” — has been teasing this collaboration with the world’s biggest boy band on Twitter since July 15, sharing comedic videos begging BTS’s label, HYBE (in the form of Scooter Braun and Hitman Bang), if he can join the band. When Blanco finally pulled the curtain back to reveal what he has in the works, fans were thrilled to learn it was a long-teased BTS song with Snoop Dogg.
“Bad Decisions” will serve as the lead single off of Blanco’s upcoming album, so it has major song-of-the-summer potential as the warm months of 2022 wind down. Check out the music video and lyrics below!
