Warner Music Korea releases video call between Seventeen members, Pink Sweat$
Warner Music Korea has released footage of a video call between Joshua and DK of boy band Seventeen and R&B singer-songwriter Pink Sweat$ on its YouTube channel on Monday afternoon.
It’s their first time appearing together after Pink Sweat$'s remix version of "17 (feat. Joshua & DK of Seventeen)" was released on Sept. 17 through domestic and international music sites, drawing global attention from music fans.
In the video call released on Monday, Joshua and DK asked how the song “17” was first created and how he decided to collaborate with Korean boy band Seventeen. Throughout the call, they also recommended their own songs to each other. Joshua recommended Seventeen’s latest release “Left & Right” (2020), and Pink Sweat$ recommended “At My Worst” (2020).
"This is Seventeen’s first collaboration with a foreign artist," Joshua told Pink Sweat$, saying that it was such an honor. Pink Sweat$ also responded by saying, "I'm more grateful.”
"Pink Sweat$ is an ideal collaborator for us because of his love for music and the love and respect he has for K-pop artists,” Joshua said earlier in a Forbes magazine interview on Sept. 24. “I hope our song will be able to deliver happiness and cheerful vibes all around to our listeners.”
The remix version of "17 (feat. Joshua & DK of Seventeen)," which combined Korean lyrics, topped iTunes song charts in four different countries and made into the top 10 list in 10 different regions.
Boy band Seventeen is set to release a new album next month.
