WATCH: Steve Aoki drops video for ‘Waste It On Me’ with BTS
Steve Aoki and BTS have unveiled the musical video for their joint track “Waste It On Me” and it features a cast of Asian stars.
Ken Jeong of “The Hangover” is the lovelorn star of the clip, which also features Ross Butler of “13 Reasons Why,” model and actress Devon Aoki, Jamie Chung and Ben Baller.
As the story goes, Ken Jeong is a worker in a restaurant where his crush, played by Devon Aoki, comes to dine on a date with Ross Butler. Lost in thought, Jeong’s character dreams of challenging the latter to a singing competition and winning the woman of his dreams.
According to People, Steve Aoki said of the single and the clip: “It’s bigger than music, it represents a Korean band and one Asian-American DJ that can show other Asians they are also a part of the global commercial musical landscape.”
“I feel so deeply about the Asian footprint in music culture that I wanted the music video to have an entirely Asian cast and director,” he explained. JB
