Is James Reid and his record label Careless Music collaborating with GOT7’s BamBam and Starship Entertainment? Fans think so as the actor-singer appeared to have met with the Thai rapper and the K-pop agency.
Reid visited Starship Entertainment along with Careless Music’s CEO Jeffrey Oh and actress Liza Soberano, who recently signed with his label, as seen in Oh’s Instagram Stories yesterday, July 4.
Oh did not give further details about the meeting, only captioning it, “Careless X Starship.”
Starship Entertainment is South Korea-based and handles the K-pop groups Monsta X, WJSN and IVE.
Meanwhile, a collaboration between Reid and BamBam was seemingly teased by one @porksterr, who is apparently one of Reid’s friends, via Instagram Stories, also yesterday. He showed three hands on top of each other while tagging Reid, BamBam and Korean artist Junwoo Yoon.
“Let’s go in!” he said.
Given this, fans started making witty remarks and speculations about the possible collaboration.
“James Reid iniisa-isa ‘yung GOT7. Baka 8th member yarn,” one @uhheocham joked. (James Reid is [working with] GOT7 members one by one. Maybe he is the eighth member.)

If Reid is indeed working on a collaborative project with BamBam, it would mark the second time that he and Careless Music have joined forces with a member of GOT7.
It can be recalled that last March, the actor-singer dropped the song “Hello 2.0 (Legends Only)” with GOT7’s Jay B and Taiwanese-American rapper ØZI.
The music video for the track, which was released in the same month, featured fellow Careless artist Nadine Lustre, Momoland’s Nancy, Soberano’s boyfriend Enrique Gil, actress Maris Racal and singer Zack Tabudlo, among others. /ra
